    Has anyone read this book? I am a huge fan of Patterson. SOme of his impressionistic stuff rocks. I have all of the rest of his books but I have always been hesitant to buy this one as it is definately not the way I shoot. Lately things have been changing so I have been thinking about it. According to the book's description their is no computer work involved.

    To see examples go to his website and click on prints

    Mark,
    Why be hesitant to pick up this book? The man is very talented and is just expanding his arena. Not to be a smartass but perhaps by having the book around you may expand your horizons also.

    I've read his work.. very *VERY* good. I wouldn't hesitate for a nanosecond to recommend it.

    I have all of the rest of the books and truely admire the work and the information but as funds are tight I am hesitant to spend the money on anything that might suck. Hence the request for thoughts. I will most likely pick it up.

    I'm really not a great fan of Patterson but I've read the four or five books in the set that includes "Photo Impressionism". Of the set, I like that book the best. Since you're a fan, I would certainly recommend that you read it.
