Visions of Light: Inspirational Poetry, Stunning Photography is a work of non-fiction featuring both the poetic arts and practical photography advice, and was penned by author Raymond J. Klein. Written in two sections, we are first introduced to what our subtitle hints at as the author showcases many impressive photographs, each accompanied by poems that probe deeper into the imagery. In the second section of the book, the author then proceeds to explain how to discover viewpoints and perspectives on photographic subjects and produce images that have this same inspiring effect. What results is a comprehensive yet concise guide on entering the world of photographic expression.
Author Raymond J. Klein has produced a volume that bridges a very important gap between the subjective world of art and the professional spheres in which art is used, such as journalism and advertising. Budding photographers as well as other artists looking to step into this as a new medium for their expression will find so much value amongst the narrative and practical steps included in this book. The author offers a wealth of experience from much time spent behind the camera, and the narrative style is accessible, not overloaded with jargon or insider talk. The first section is especially useful when looked at again after reading the second, as the examples really shine once you understand how they were formed. Overall, I would highly recommend Visions of Light to everyone seeking to move into photography either for pleasure or profit.
