A great book.
Really good book about creativity and the need for practice and hard work Not particular to photography only but to any creative pursuit, well written and practical.
I ve been a fan of Chris Orwig for years Ever since I witnessed his passion for photography and how he handled his craft in Photoshop CS3 for Photographers by Lynda, I have rarely seen found someone to match him I love his photograps as well, and have enjoyed his earlier books, Visual Poetry and Poeple Pictures While it sounds a bit hippie , coming from me, some weeks back I felt a need to read The Creative Fight I d known about it since it came out, but for whatever reason it popped up on the n [...]
I would give this book 3 stars It was well written, contained some beautiful images and had some great thoughts and ideas in it It wasn t as true to being a photography book per se as well I would have liked, it was a bit OK, a lot redundant Going forward, some of the lessons I will take with me in my photography I think are mindfulness something I have been trying to practice anyway and specifically with photography , limiting my gear to push myself creatively, taking less images composing in m [...]
I think this is the first book I ve ever sent back to kindle store for a refund I really like Chris Orwig and enjoy his lynda videos I ve started reading his book on creative portraiture and that seems pretty good, but this one just stank and I feel so bad saying it but it has to be said Self indulgent and about him than the reader Maybe if you re into self help books this may resonate with you and challenge you.It s not listed on his website with his other books so I can t help but wonder whe [...]
Chris Orwig creates great portraits with that honest and yet creative flair The kind of photos you wish you had taken.This book is a mix of his beautiful work and a creative kick in the pants.A great book to sit and browse with a cup of coffee in one hand and a camera ready to go in the other.
Great book to make us see that we are all creators, whatever our work We should apply creativity everywhere, not only in classical art but even in engineering, computer science, physics
Inspiring and encouraging book to live the life you dream to live Do the work and start right now Creativity helps to not only exist, but live.
