When a photograph captivates you and stirs your soul, you know it instinctively. You not only see the image, you feel it. But how do you capture shots like that with your own camera? How do you make your photographs worth the proverbial thousand words? From portraits to landscapes, still-lifes to documentary shots, Expressive Photography will not only show you why certain images sing, it will also teach you how to create your own compelling photographic images--one click at a time. Visually stunning and unique in its collaborative approach, this book brings the spirit of the immensely popular Shutter Sisters' blog to the printed page through the voice and photography of its founding members.

-Written by the immensely popular Shutter Sisters, Blogger's Choice Award nominees for best blog

-Themed chapters containing the voices of several photographers give artistic insights into any shooting opportunity

-Evocative imagery that captures the emotion of the moment

-Compositional tips and recommendations throughout

"In our new book, Expressive Photography: A Shutter Sisters' Guide to Shooting from the Heart, we introduce another approach to portraiture: focusing on the details. Although often overlooked, the small gestures and subtle nuances of your subject often can tell you more about them than any headshot ever could."-Digital Photo Magazine

"Ten authors, collectively known as the Shutter Sisters, successfully parlay their blog (shuttersisters.com) into an analogous print format, which is no small feat! Edited by Clark-a professional photographer and founder of the Sisters-the book is unusual among photography guides because it is far more concerned with questions of why than with lengthy explanations of how. The advice presented in this approachable guide addresses primarily issues of creativity, inspiration, and meaning for photographers in a way that many will find helpful. It is likely to appeal most to photographers less enamored by technological gadgetry and to busy young parents."-Library Journal

Capture your feeling! June 26, 2011
Great textbook with beautiful images and explanation about how those images were shot. This textbook will open your eyes to untraditional photographing and challenge you to get out there and really capture life, capture something that makes you feel. The best way I know how to describe this textbook is that it brings feelings to photography. It helps you capture your feeling, thought, emotion and sort of bring it to life. I definitely recommend this to anyone who doesn't want to shoot "lifeless" photography.
