Dave Black shows you “the way he sees it”

2009-April-WATR-01.jpgMy good friend Dave Black has published his first book, entitled The Way I See ItThe Way I See It is a compilation of 50 one-page workshops that illustrate Dave’s masterful approach to lighting and composition.  While this book is an excellent tutorial, it is also a handsome coffee table book– the color images are stunning.

For any photographer, especially those who use the Nikon system, you’ll love Dave’s simple approach to building a scene and capturing traditional events in a manner that brings emotion and feeling to his images.

To order The Way I See It, visit Dave’s website or visit his store page directly at Blurb.com.
