Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2009 - Photography - 175 pages

Capturing the effects of time and motion are two of the hottest topics in photography, and photographer Joseph Meehan provides the technical and aesthetic know-how for representing a three-dimensional world in a two-dimensional medium.

Meehan explores the foundations of composition, light, and dimension that create the illusion of movement and passing time, and guides readers through a wide breadth of subjects, from shooting wildlife, sports, and moving backgrounds to creative digital techniques and panning.
