Angier, Roswell, author

"Combining the theoretical with the practical and technical, Train Your Gaze explores different aspects of picture-making process and addresses issues of content, paying attention to history, theory, and formal analysis along the way. Each chapter is accompanied by a practical assignment, designed to help you explore and produce a range of different styles in your own work.The text has been updated throughout to take into account advances in creative work and technology over the last six years. In addition, this second edition includes a very substantial revision of Chapter 12, 'Digital Personae' - including a discussion of the role of social media in the practice of portraiture. There are also new assignments at the end of each chapter, and expanded captions throughout to contextualize the images."-- Provided by publisher.
