Flying Flowers is an exquisite collection of intimate and up-close images of living butterflies by renowned nature photographer Rick Sammon. A mediation and celebration of one of nature's most beautiful creatures, Flying Flowers takes the reader on a visual journey into the miracle of transformation. The butterfly, with its amazing metamorphosis from a crawling caterpillar into a vivid and graceful winged creature, symbolizes the infinite potential within every living creature to evolve: from darkness into light, ugliness into beauty, lethargy into activity. The life of a butterfly is a coming of age story in the most profound sense. As such an exotic metaphor for transcendence and renewal, the butterfly has been celebrated in art, literature, dance, fashion, myth, and spirituality throughout history and in cultures around the world. Using groundbreaking digital photography, Sammon offers us a new view of these delicate insects in their natural habitat. "The ability to see every shot immediately on my camera's LCD monitor allowed me to make critical exposure and lighting adjustments on site," explains Sammon. "That was of the utmost importance, due to subject movement, changing lighting conditions and the reflectivity of some of the butterflies." The result of over a year's work on the subject, these luminous portraits come together in Flying Flowers like a Technicolor bouquet. From Mourning Cloaks to Hummingbird Moths, dozens of species are represented and identified with brief informational captions. Photographed in extreme close-up and stunning detail during all stages of life-emerging from the cocoon, taking flight, migrating in mass, or simply perched momentarily on a bloom or branch-Sammon's butterflies flutter across the page in a mesmerizing kaleidoscope of wings eyes, legs, and antennae.

The 1992 release of the "Director's Cut" only confirmed what the international film cognoscenti have know all along: Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, based on Philip K.

Future Noir is the story of that triumph. The making of Blade Runner was a seven-year odyssey that would test the stamina and the imagination of writers, producers, special effects wizards, and the most innovative art directors and set designers in the industry. A fascinating look at the ever-shifting interface between commerce and the art that is modern Hollywood, Future Noir is the intense, intimate, anything-but-glamerous inside account of how the work of SF's most uncompromising author was transformed into a critical sensation, a commercial success, and a cult classic.

Jay Maisel has been hailed as one of the most brilliant and gifted photographers of all time. But he is also much more than that–he is a mentor, teacher, and trailblazer to many photographers, and a hero to those who feel Jay’s teaching has changed the way they see and create their own photography. He is a living legend whose work is studied around the world, and whose teaching style and presentation garner standing ovations and critical acclaim every time he takes the stage. In his first educational book, Light, Gesture, and Color, Jay put his amazing insights and learning moments from a lifetime behind the lens into a book that communicated the three most important aspects of street photography: light, gesture, and color. Here, in It’s Not About the F-Stop, Jay builds on that success to take you beyond the buttons and dials on your camera to continue to teach you how to “see” like a photographer, and how to capture the world around you in a way that delights, intrigues, and challenges the viewer. Each page unveils something new and inspires you to rethink everything you know about the bigger picture of photography. This isn’t a book about f-stops or ISOs. It’s about seeing. And nobody communicates this, visually or through the written word, like Jay Maisel.
