Shooting With Soul: 44 Photography Exercises Exploring Life, Beauty And Self-expression - From Film To Smartphones, Cap is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Shooting with Soul is glorious and beautiful book for anyone who loves to take pictures. Whether you are an aspirational photographer, artist, creative mom, or blogger, you will enjoy expanding your understanding of this medium by exploring 44 weeks of unique and reflective prompts and exercises aimed to demystify seemingly “techie” topics and enhance your creative self-expression. No matter what camera you own, an SLR, point and shoot, or even a camera phone, this book offers tips and methods for any device that snaps a photo.
 
New technology is making it easier to share photography, and interest in photos is being fueled by the popularity of photo-based apps and social networking sites such as Pinterest, Instagram, Hipstamatic, Flickr, and tumblr blogs. Sharing photos with friends and family has become as easy as pushing a button, however, finding the right photos to take and coming up with creative concepts for jaw-dropping photos remains something that needs to be explored and fostered.
 
Shooting with Soul teaches successful photography methods through an approach that is very much like journaling. By putting deep thought and feeling into the process, and into the exercises, which focus on personal exploration and autobiographical information, you will become able to create images that are infused with soul and that connect you with your viewers more deeply, whether they are friends and family, a professional art audience, or followers of a blog or website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great beginners book! I bought this a few weeks back and I love it! I was looking for a great beginners photography book to help me get familiar with all types of cameras and their different settings. This book not only gave me very visual learning tools, but also gave me certain tasks to complete. It also has a wonderful glossary in the back which is a great go to.

About the Author

Originally from Brazil, Alessandra Cave thought all she needed was a camera and a backpack, until her round the world travels revealed a fierce love for texture, light, and design, as old as the stories she once called home. After working for over 10 years as a producer in the film industry, in 2009, Alessandra kissed the cubicle goodbye to pursue her dream of working as a professional photographer. She currently lives in San Francisco and splits her time between commercial and editorial photography assignments, teaching workshops at creative retreats, and raising her amazing daughter, who is her biggest creative achievement to date. Alessandra holds a Master in Arts degree from the Savannah College of Art and Design, but she considers herself completely self-taught when it comes to photography. A former contributor to Shutter Sisters, the widely acclaimed photo-blog celebrating women photographers, Alessandra is passionate about inspiring and empowering women to pick up the camera and follow their creative dreams. Her work has been featured extensively around the world-wide-web, as well as in national and international publications, such as: The Beauty of Different, Nine to Five, Artful Blogging, Somerset Studio and Mingle. You can follow her work and journey at www.alessandracave.com.

No two people carry around the exact same items in their purse, backpack or wallet. What do those contents say about you and your life? As you make your way through Shooting with Soul, your photography skills will improve as well as, Alessandra says, 'find a window into your soul.' Her exercises encourage you to slow down, take a look around, and capture what means the most to you." - UPPERCASE Magazine
