Cosshall, renowned author and educator about photography, brings his 35+ years of photography experience to you in a fun, thought provoking book that challenges you to take better photos. " The tips come from my 35+ years of photography experience, from my passions of landscape, macro, collage and infrared photography to portraits, weddings, product shots and the odd bit of fashion. They also draw from my varied other interests and activities: helping people overcome creative blocks, teaching photography, art and computers at all levels of adult education, a passion for science, philosophy, spirituality and history, and much more. I find it constantly amazing that interests in one area will often yield insights in a completely different field."
Wayne J. Cosshall has been a photographer since he turned 14 and was given his first SLR by his parents to take pictures through his telescopes. Since then his photography has come more down to earth, though his wife claims he never has.
While growing in his photographic practice, Wayne shaped an academic career in Computer Science, specialising in computer graphics and imaging. After close on 20 years Wayne left the university system for awhile and started writing full time. Later Wayne came back to teaching through workshops, teaching and running the photography department at a number of private universities, consulting with others on digital photography course design and consulting with other education providers. Through this period Wayne’s photography broadened and he brought his professional computer skills across into his imaging, working first with his own software to do image manipulation and later becoming expert with software like Photoshop and Painter, as well as many 3D graphics programs.
Wayne has exhibited his photography and digital art pieces both within Australia and internationally. For many years he co-directed the International Digital Art Awards with his friend and IDAA founder Steve Danzig. Wayne has been involved in organising several photography conferences, has curated a number of photography and digital art exhibitions and is active with a local photography biennale.read more
