It’s not about the F-Stop

Despite the lack of time for writing here more often (work, personal projects, changes in private life …), I still can read! 🙂

It's not about the F-Stop - Jay Maisel

It’s not about the F-Stop – Jay Maisel

The photographic “victim” this time was “It’s not about the F-Stop“, by the legendary Jay Maisel.

Jay Maisel is one of those photographers that you can hear talking forever. Each sentence is a lecture. There’s a great series of conversation between him and Scott Kelby (A Day with Jay Maisel, Another Day with Jay Maisel and A Week with Kay Maisel in Paris). Totally worth watching.

In this book, Jay follows the nice model I’ve seen before in “The Moment it Clicks“, by Joe McNally. One picture, one page about it. Jay tells the stories of his career, sometimes directly related by the image displayed, sometimes general advice exemplified in the picture. You can travel through his history, in no chronological order, from his first assignments, to his free photography. He explains what has called his attention to each of the shots. An inspirational process.

Surely worth reading more than once!
