I was just surfing through Amazon’s best selling book list and noticed a new digital photography book was in the top 20.
I’m yet to see a copy (I just ordered one) but it’s certainly ranking well in terms of sales and is an interesting concept. Here’s how they’re promoting it:
The First Book with one Foot on the Coffee Table and one Foot in the Classroom
Joe McNally, one of the world’s top pro digital photographers, whose celebrated work has graced the pages of Sports Illustrated, Time, and National Geographic (to name a few), breaks new ground by doing something no photography book has ever doneÃ¢â‚¬â€blending the rich, stunning images and elegant layout of a coffee-table book with the invaluable training, no-nonsense insights, and photography secrets usually found only in those rare, best-of-breed educational books.
When Joe’s not on assignment for the biggest-name magazines and Fortune 500 clients, he’s in the classroom teaching location lighting, environmental portraiture, and how to “get the shot” at workshops around the world. These on-location workshops are usually reserved for a handful of photographers each year, but now you can learn the same techniques that Joe shares in his seminars and lectures in a book that brings Joe’s sessions to life.
