It covers both the creative aesthetics and technical know-how sides of photography. You will learn about being an artist first, photographer second; see with your imagination, not your eyes; see something before you see it; how to make the common uncommon and the mundane insane. The book starts off with an emphasis on starting with the end in mind. The reader is immediately engaged with right brain exercises which the author introduces to get the mind stimulated.
Description
Right Brain Photography, an award-winning book, is for photographers who want to get the most out of their cameras, without spending hours in front of the computer, but yet want high quality professional results. It covers both the creative aesthetics and technical know-how sides of photography. You will learn about being an artist first, photographer second; see with your imagination, not your eyes; see something before you see it; how to make the common uncommon and the mundane insane. The book starts off with an emphasis on starting with the end in mind. The reader is immediately engaged with right brain exercises which the author introduces to get the mind stimulated. Eli has created three photography models, or paradigms, which he shares in his book, now in its fourth edition: "I S.E.E. SOMETHING," "ELI'S 5-POINT PHOTO ART MODEL," and "THE PHOTO IMAGE CREATION PROCESS." He also spends an entire chapter on the subject of composition, which he learned during his college art days, and which he feels is becoming a lost art among photographers. Throughout the book "challenge assignments" are introduced to encourage readers to apply what they learned, but in real life situations. They are intended to connect the dots. Most highly experienced professional photographers do not share the stage with other photographers, especially in a book about their photography. Eli does. He showcases eight of his students' works to show what other photographers create when they apply his principles, concepts, paradigms, and techniques. Right Brain Photography has over 130 eye-catching images that serve to illustrate lessons taught.
About the author
Eli was born in a railroad boxcar in Wyoming, from Spanish-speaking parents of Mexican/Spanish descent. He overcame his adversity and went on to obtain BA and MS degrees, from Texas Tech and the University of Utah. Before his degrees, he majored in art for three years. Those three years became the foundation for his now popular and well-known photo art. Camera clubs, art groups, art schools, colleges, and other venues often seek him out for his classes, workshops, presentations, and private lessons. Businesses seek him out for his attention to detail. His fine art prints find a home on residential, galleries, and business walls. A highly published photographer, Eli is multi-faceted in his services and products. Although his primary focus is education, his business also includes fine art archival prints, stock photography, writing, and commissioned commercial work. He has several photography mantras, but mostly known for, "The best photography is found where technical know-how and creative aesthetics meet."
