An essential guide for those looking to capture the diversity of the railways. Suitable for both seasoned and amateur railway photography enthusiasts. The UK has a huge market for historical railway societies and railway enthusiasts. Photographers may have different expectations of a railway visit. Some may simply want a record of a `day out', with children and partners featuring as strongly as locomotives, rolling stock or buildings. Others may want to record particular items seen in different collections, and some may want to use the railway situation to improve their technical photographic skills. Students of railway engineering might need photographic records of their work, and artists may be seeking source materials for their portfolios. For many, there may be a combination of these hopes. However, taking photos in a crowded train station setting, where commuters, guards and engineers must be dodged before even opening a camera bag, is a skill that takes time to perfect. Experienced railway photographer Ron Pickering provides a wealth of information to help capture unforgettable images, including how to make the most of the lighting, night time photography and post-shoot digital manipulation. The Art of Railway Photography offers guidance on technique and management of photographic equipment. There are also handy tips for producing the most realistic images in an enclosed environment, and on utilising the photographer's understanding of railway working to produce memorable and artistically fulfilling photographic records.

Experimental Photography is the first manual ever to break down into a step-by-step format the experimental techniques that photographers use to subvert or expand conventional camera technology, heralding a new era in photography. The book features technical sections that define a particular process and show how to carry it out, accompanied by examples of the finished images. These are interspersed with illustrated interviews with photographers who use these techniques, examining what their work aims to do and how it is made. Some techniques, such as photograms or lumenprints, are cameraless; others involve building simple cameras from unexpected materials or exploiting the limitations of toy and disposable cameras for artistic effect. Camera hacking breaking rules in exposure, zooming, panning, focus, and composition; modifying the camera to produce slit-scans; or adding filters can produce a variety of exciting results. Film can also be manipulated or distressed, and many experiments can be conducted during the preparation of negatives and prints. Even once the print has been produced, creativity continues: mordancage, for example, provides a controlled degrading of the print, and bleaching and encaustic can be used to create new effects. For practicing photographers as well as anyone interested in artistic photographic techniques, this is an unprecedented sourcebook of practical inspiration that celebrates the work of the exceptional artists, hackers, and artisans who are pushing the boundaries of how we conceive of photography."
