Toy Cameras, Creative Photos by Kevin Meredith . Published by RotorVision 2011. Paperback in very good condition.
This is the perfect book for creative photographers, image-makers, designers, and toy camera aficionados. Focusing on the photographs produced by each camera, this is a stunning visual guide to the unique stylistic qualities that different toy cameras offer. Arranged by camera model (all of the cameras included are readily available and in popular current use), Toy Cameras, Creative Photos discusses camera characteristics, special tricks, foibles, functionality, and interesting projects by users, but the visual emphasis is firmly on the photographs. The workings of each camera model are described, as are the ways in which they differ from "everyday" digital cameras, and the distinctive photographic results reveal a huge potential for experimentation that moves away from run-of-the-mill photography. Including a gallery of images produced by each camera, a resource section on film types, and adapting cameras to the use of film, Toy Cameras, Creative Photos fills a gap in the market for a comprehensive guide to this most hip and exciting of creative photographic endeavours.
