If you love Photography...

...then you will love this book. Promise.

I just got Expressive Photography: The Shutter Sisters' Guide to Shooting from the Heart. 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, but will also teach you how to create your own compelling photographic images-one click at a time.

*I love this shot because it reminds me of a poster of Bob Marley that I had hanging on my wall during college!

This book is a collaborative effort of an amazing group of women. My favorite feature is that with each picture they describe how they took the picture, what didn't work...and how they got the perfect shot. Not only are the advice and pictures stunning, but it lists the women who make up the Shutter Sisters, tells a little about them AND lists their blogs. Meet this amzaing group of women here.
