For most keen amateur photographers, developing an identifiable personal style is something to which they aspire. This PhotoWise book explores the development of David Penprase’s own unique style and approach to photography. In this highly personal and revealing study, David takes us on a journey from his early photographic beginnings to the refinement and sophistication of his later work. He also reveals the alchemical recipes for his edgy and thought-provoking photographs in detailed captions for the 79 images included herein. As well as a personal account of the author’s own development as a photographer, Developing a Photographic Style is also a masterclass on such topics as: influences; working with models; studying and critiquing your own work; discussing your work and accepting criticism from others; previsualisation; lighting and … post-production. Developing a Photographic Style is both inspiring and challenging for keen amateur photographers who want to take their photography to the next level. The book provides the opportunity to learn from an experienced professional photographer who offers us his insights on the origins of his own unique style.
