Revue de presse

Exceptional ... a fascinating read for any photographer. Its variety of imagery, Gibson's intelligent writing and quotes from other renowned photographers make it one of the best publications of its type I've seen. --Black & White Photography

Excellent ... thorough and immensely enjoyable ... Highly recommended. --Amateur Photographer

Présentation de l'éditeur

Whether dark, edgy or humorous, street photography shows us that daily life can be a little surreal but also gently poignant. Photo sharing on Flickr and Facebook has rejuvenated the genre, and its spirit has been reborn. This book is about the possibilities of street photography, and how it can be approached in a tangible way. It begins with an overview of street photography, examining its past, present and future, and looking at how the genre has changed over time. The reader is then introduced to twenty of the most acclaimed international street photographers, among them Bruce Gilden, Alex Webb, Nils Jorgensen and Saul Leiter. Integrated within the profiles are twenty fully illustrated tutorials, including how to shoot a face in a crowd and how to train your eye to observe and capture the unexpected. This book shows you that being a street photographer is about looking for the luck. But luck requires inspiration and that is where this book is indispensable.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A solid guide for beginners, but heavy on the gimmicks 7 octobre 2014
Par Philip T. Ewing - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
David Gibson's manual is a solid resource for beginners who want to take the next step from admiring street photos to creating their own. The book is clear and concise and full of helpful tips and examples. It may irk some readers (and grizzled veterans) because it mostly eschews technical prescriptions. Gibson admits early that he is not interested in f-stops, ISO or shutter speed and that he often simply sets his camera to "P." It may also irk some readers because it essentially shrugs when addressing the question of mobile phones, as opposed to delineating the advantages (especially in terms of manual control and image quality) of a regular digital camera. Most newcomers and many accomplished photographers, however, will find a lot worth studying here.

For me, the biggest shortcoming of Gibson's book is the "school" of street photography, for lack of a better term, he appears to favor: joke pictures, or visual trickery. Two women, photographed sitting next to each other, are made to look like one. A long shadow falls across the face of a police officer standing in a corner, giving him a "mustache." A bent-over old man walks past the windows of a shop, apparently closing, covered with the words "Last few days." To be clear, Gibson describes a wider range of street photos and profiles many different photographers, but this is his book and the visual pun seems to be where his heart lies. The problem is that these can be the most difficult pictures to capture in the real world, but they tend to be the most forgettable -- you get the "punchline" and you move right on, as opposed to lingering and studying the way you would a picture by, say, Alex Webb.

This isn't a reason not to order "The Street Photographer's Manual" if you're interested in getting started in street photography. Gibson includes many solid photos, including several strong ones of his own: a great, quiet photo of a British man standing on his bicycle and a brilliant picture of a group of girls all dressed alike to audition for "Annie." So even if he does sometimes fall back on gimmickry (two old people seated behind a sign that says "Lost Children") Gibson includes plenty of other ways to do street photography well.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Manual focus... 2 octobre 2014
Par Andrew D. Lossing - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Initially, I debated on how to rate this book. There are great photos, especially more towards the beginning, where the author also lays out a great discussion on the overall subject. The best photos, however, seem to be at the beginning - a lot of the later stuff is more technical, less visually arresting or profound. This is not to say that they aren't good photos - David is a good street photographer, and he uses photos he has taken to illustrate each of the over twenty lessons on different street tricks of the trade. An ambitious plan, not perfectly executed, but it works and it teaches. I've read a lot of things on photography, but the nitty-gritty details and examples in here are pretty exhaustive, and taught me new things.

The prose, as has been mentioned, isn't perfect. There are misspellings, poorly proofed sentences and the like, which is a pet peeve of mine. The fact that I'm willing to almost totally overlook that tells you that I feel the book's value is fairly high. Whatever proofing deficiencies there are, I found the content of the book to be well explained, well-linked to the photos, and very informative. If you want real how-tos, with good examples, this book is hard to beat.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not so bad, not so good. It's worth the price. 3 octobre 2014
Par D. Bayer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Ok... I see no middle ground between the two most useful reviews, either people are hating it or loving it.

After reading it, I must sat that it is a good book. Not a great one, neither a bad one. Great pictures, nice paper, not so great prose.

You will get the most out of it if you already know how to shoot. If you are after a book that will teach you the basics AND street photography at the same time, you will be very disappointed. This book looks like a print version of what Eric Kim does with his blog. It does not teach you all, but it will point you to the right direction.

So, if you already know how to shoot, and want to know more about street photography, this is a good start. Advanced photographers and begginers should look elsewhere.

For me, I found a great deal of inspiration on it. For the price, I think is well worth it.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Gibson is no Szarkowski 2 octobre 2014
Par TimoWhee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I am interested in photography in general and am intrigued in street photography as a new direction to explore. I will admit to ignorance of name and style (beyond Henri Cartier-Bresson, of course). So, I approached this book with excitement. What differentiates "good" street photography? How does Cartier-Bresson manage to be in place, with camera at the ready, during those "decisive moments"? I have trouble looking people in the eye! How could I hope to be a street photographer? (Photographers hold cameras to their faces for a reason, right?)

This book is as chaotic as a street photograph. Hit and miss. Gibson clearly wants to spread the word and he makes some good points. But what is this book? It is not a manual, the topics he addresses are too random for that. It is not a critique. The author does not have a firm idea of where street photography fits in the larger body of photographic work. (He spends pages idly trying to define what street photography _is_.) There is no progression or development from beginning to end. It is not a "course". The "projects" are not well explained. Why is there an exercise on "looking down"? What is there about "down" that I am supposed to attend to? At the end of it, I have seen some examples of great photographs, but I am no closer to being a better street photographer myself.

Here is what I learned:
-- I should spend as much money on books as on equipment
-- Focus sometimes matters, but sometimes does not.
-- Street photography is whatever works.

This book is not useless. I have now encountered Fan Ho's work, for instance, and I will definitely follow up to find out more. But I can't recommend it (the book). Gibson seems to suggest that street photography is the pursuit of that moment when all the elements of graphics and composition happen to coalesce. The good street photographer is the one who can recognize that it is about to happen, amidst the noise and the bustle of life. This book contains some anecdotes about how this is done, but I do not feel any closer to the prize having read it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Could Not Put It Down 10 décembre 2014
Par James C. Cassatt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
First a little background. Because of wife's Alzheimer's disease I cannot leave her for the long periods of time needed to take the spectacular photos you see in magazines and books. So I embarked on a little project. Every time I go out for anything, I would try to take one well-composed pictures and post it to my pbase site. This little project has led me to see artistry in common things around me, and that includes people.

For this reason I looked forward to reading David Gibson;s "The Street Photographer's Manual". I was not disappointed; in fact I had trouble putting the book down. The book has a sort of a stream of consciousness style; must be much like attending one of his workshops. This style makes it quick reading, interesting and never boring.

Gibson spends a bit time on technique, but it is obviously meant for a photographer who understands the workings of his/her camera. Thus most of the book is spent on the more artistic aspects of the subject, with discussion of a number of different aspects.

A strong point of the book is that Gibson is generally not dogmatic, with some exceptions, like color and black white should not be mixed and photographs should not be cropped. Rather, a great feature of the book is the length Gibson goes to highlight, in addition to his own work, the work of other contemporary photographers with widely different styles. In fact, Amazon must love this book, because is a good stepping stone for ordering additional photography books, something Gibson recommends.

I would love to take a workshop with Gibson. In fact one of the things on my wish list is, once my wife's situation is settled, to combine a London vacation with one of his workshops.
