Description
A camera can instantly capture a fleeting moment in time--that shifting quality of light, the shape of a moving figure, or a flash of emotion across a face--and preserve it for artists to paint at their leisure. Make your photographs an invaluable inspiration for great paintings. A technical discussion covers cameras, lenses, viewpoints, and depth of field. Themed mini-galleries place source photographs and the paintings they motivated side by side--including a photo of Paris by night that, in the artist's hands, becomes a glittering, romantic pastel of the city. Eight in-depth profiles of painters feature a selection of their art, conversations about their working methods, and a "tutorial" that follows the progression from photograph to painting. 128 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 11.
