Combining ancient principles of harmony with modern camera techniques, this unusual book offers photographers new ways to produce innovative, meaningful, and memorable pictures.
The author shows how to apply Tao concepts of Yin and Yang and “the Way” to photography, balancing the pros and cons of one action over another in every decision: whether to choose color or black-and-white film; fast film or film-grained; wide angle or long lens; high or low viewpoint; large or small format; light or dark exposure. Basic photographic techniques are explained in step-by-step instructions, and the book’s expert technical tips include the latest information on digital photography.

Tom Ang, the author of Silver Pixels and The Art of Digital Photography, teaches photographic practice at the University of Westminster in England. He lives in London.From Library Journal:
One might reason that the essence of all photographic art is a spiritual feeling for one's surroundings, but what is most refreshing about these two books is that by explaining the relationship between Taoist beliefs and creative photography they explicitly seek an understanding of this connection. Taoism, which may very well be at the heart of all creative work, seems especially relevant to photography, which relies so deeply on the acceptance of a given subject and the light in which it is situated. Nicely illustrated and filled with wonderful insights, both books function admirably as "how-to" manuals, with an emphasis on approach rather than nuts and bolts. In fact, there is little differentiation other than format Ang's book has a larger trim size while Gross and Shapiro's is more compact. Both are highly recommended for general and specialized photography collections in public and academic libraries. Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, IL
