Book Review of Artist's Photo Reference - Reflections Textures and Backgrounds




Author: Gary Greene
Publisher: F & W
143 pp.
ISBN: 158180377X
More Than A Collection Of Beautiful Reference Photographs

Photographer and artist Gary Greene has assembled a collection of reference photographs that has something for every artist. As reflected in the title, this book has a useful mixture of photos subdivided into the three categories: Reflections, Textures and Backgrounds. Here is a sampling of what you will find.

Reflections
  • Subjects reflected from water such as buildings, bridges, daylight, sunset and artificial light
  • Water in motion
  • Light reflected from man-made objects such as metal and glass
Textures
  • Natural subjects such as tree bark, weathered wood, mosses, autumn and winter trees
  • Man-made subjects such as rusted metal, old buildings, fabrics, pots and baskets
Backgrounds
  • Mountains, deserts, barns and fields, seascapes, autumn and winter scenes
This book has more than a collection of beautiful reference photographs. Greene has included some very useful information. For those who wish to take their own reference photos he discusses the timely topic of digital versus film photography. Next he covers in detail the different equipment and techniques for photographing reflections, textures and backgrounds. Throughout the book Greene discusses how he used the AdobeR PhotoshopR software to digitally enhance his photographs. Finally he and five other artists demonstrate how they interpreted reference photos in various artistic media.
