Genre: Photography

Jay Maisel, hailed as one of the most brilliant, gifted photographers of all time, is 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. Now, for the first time ever, Jay puts his amazing insights and learning moments from a lifetime behind the lens into a book that communicates the three most important aspects of street photography: light, gesture, and color. Each page unveils something new and challenges 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. It’s about being surrounded by the ordinary and learning how to find the extraordinary. It’s about training your mind, and your eyes, to see and capture the world in a way that delights, engages, and captivates your viewers, and there is nobody that communicates this, visually or through the written word, like Jay Maisel. Light, Gesture & Color is the seminal work of one of the true photographic geniuses of our time, and it can be your key to opening another level of understanding, appreciation, wonder, and creativity as you learn to express yourself, and your view of the world, through your camera. If you’re ready to break through the barriers that have held your photography back and that have kept you from making the types of images you’ve always dreamed of, and you’re ready to learn what photography is really about, you’re holding the key in your hands at this very moment.

Genre: Juvenile Fiction

A year has passed since the Shuttle launch in Florida, a year during which Saskia has decided that she prefers to be Saskia rather than Richie. As her friend and companion Saskia Hunt leaves school for the last time, Voice arranges for Saskia to exist as an actual person. For the last time (or so he thinks) Richie changes to be Saskia. Now the girls can live together as sisters together forever - and that word has a particular meaning for the pair of them. As the Supertwins, the girls continue to use their powers to help and protect others, including saving most of the world again by actually making a volcano erupt. Having left school (at least one of them has), the girls go to work for James Robinson. Their experiences are decidedly NOT those of your average school-leaver, and their involvement with the security forces comes in handy from time to time. James has cause to be grateful when a helicopter crash is averted by Saskia learning to fly it in a matter of seconds. What they come to call the Saskia Magic helps them help others to come to terms with themselves, including an American businessman who ignores his teenage daughter in favour of his work. Saskia Hunt enjoys being shot at, so foiling a terrorist hijack of a trainload of nuclear fuel sees her with a huge grin as the machinegun bullets bounce off her. Saskia can already drive a car (and other things), she learned the normal way while she was still Richie. Saskia Hunt learns in just a minute or so as Saskia shows her how it's done.

Will they forget you? Will they visit? Do they know about new arrivals? Special events? Do they have fun? You may just find the answers here. All the pieces and poems are the words of those in the Spirit World. I don't know the answers, but they do. As one child put it it isnt the end its our beginning They learn, they love, they have fun, and they are safe. They are also as mischievous, as bright and lively and as adorable as children the world over. Come and read their stories, their journeys to the Spirit World. Some of them did not have easy lives, some had illnesses, some accidents. All were met with love, with patience and with any help they needed at that time and later. Not all are children, but the majority are. I ask no questions, give no demands, I simply accept what I am told and write it down. I have learned to be very careful how I phrase any comments I make to them, or any requests. If I wake at three in the morning, I am likely to find myself with company. I have been known to say, Hi sweetheart, could you please come back when I get up? It isnt then the childs fault if I visit the bathroom at four in the morning is it? I am up and I dont have the heart to turn them away again. So atfour in the morning I have been known to get out pad and pen, or turn on the pc .

Genre: Performing Arts

In the first edition of A Practical Guide to Stage Lighting, Steve Shelley cracked open his production book and showed how to prepare a lighting design and create the paperwork needed to mount a production. In the second edition, he pulled back the curtain and showed the methods and processes that go on before the light plot is finalized and ready to go to into the shop, even dealing with cutting the plot in half. In this third edition, Shelley throws the door wide open and shows step-by-step how to construct every lighting system in the Hokey light plot. Combining his diacritical analysis, killer drafting, and analytic use of the Slinky Method and Slinky Calculations, he presents the Periodic Table of Fundamental Lighting Systems and shows the basic methods used to create multi-instrument lighting systems. Highlights include: -Over 100 new topics, including analysis and application of the three categories of collaboration; a detailed examination of production meetings and one-on-one meetings; and meeting checklists with management and the creative team. -Over 50 new illustrations, including Shelley's Periodic Table of Fundamental Lighting Systems; groundplans, sections, and front elevations that illustrate basic system wash configurations for each direction of light. -Analysis, calculation, and step-by-step technical construction of each lighting system in the Hokey light plot. -Explanation of a manufacturer's cut sheet, and how to apply basic formulas to determine the beam size, footcandles, and gel transmission for lighting instruments. -Updated process of pre-programming computer lighting consoles prior to the load-in. -Comprehensive overview of archiving paperwork and softcopy for a production.
