The Lesser Photographer by CJ Chilvers – a particularly sage photography book

The lesser photographer, a book by CJ Chilvers, is a reorganised and edited compendium of thoughts about photography taken from his blog. I suppose you could call it tips, or maybe advice, but that feels like an injustice to it. It’s more sage than those words sum up – it feels more wise, less contrived, less derivative and much less prescriptive than most of what you’ll otherwise read about photography. Of course, it is just the reflections of an individual, so of course you can take it or leave it like anything else you might read – if you’re anything like me, though, I expect you’d enjoy it quite a bit!
