Shooting Paddlers: Photographic Adventures with Canoeists, Kayakers and Rafters
Shooting Paddlers: Photographic Adventures With Canoeists, Kayakers and Rafters is the first book published anywhere designed to help all paddlers strengthen their ability to see, recognize and record meaningful images. It presents an original approach to the study of photography, concentrating on specific possibilities and problems unique to the paddling environment. Most of the 238 black-and-white and colour photographs are discussed through the presentation of one or several pictures on a page, each accompanied by an analysis that includes explanations, tips, recommendations and other useful background information. Shooting Paddlers provides a wealth of specialized knowledge, difficult, if not impossible, to find elsewhere.
"I would have saved myself a fortune in wasted film if I had this book years ago when I first began to write about canoeing. Shooting Paddlers is unique because it analyzes 'water' shots through a paddler's eye and suggests how to improve them. Toni Harting's work is awesome! Even the oldest dogs will learn new tricks if they take to heart his suggestions."
