In my youth this guidebook was an important companion for me. Besides comprehensive technical basisn are also taught here aspects that I did not find in any otherls found in no other textbook: So deals with ain chaptertwa with “Personality and Style”where it is about the artistic development.
Even if this part of only takes up a small amount of space, it it made a lasting impression on me. The book stimulated me to deal with the question, how photographic work can be meaningful and fulfilling… can be.
Andreas Feininger does not provide an answer or a Andreas Feininger, and that is thes the exciting thing. I felt encouraged me to give myself time, to try out a lot and to take detours sometimes.
