Dedicated Lomographer and Flickr celebrity Kevin Meredith has established quite a following his wide-ranging subject matter and processing style draw almost endless comments and favourites, and now hes moved from behind the camera to in front of the computer to share his wisdom.
Hot Shots sees Meredith display some of his more notable works along with a page-long deconstruction of the image on why it works, whats good about it and, most important, how to take a photo like his yourself. Leading on from these deconstructions is a section dedicated to all the basic knowledge and housekeeping needed to become a competent photographer.
While most of Merediths work is either Lomography or just general film based, there is no doubting the general appeal and relevance Hot Shots has for the digital photographer. Not only is Merediths work eye-catchingly unique but also his advice is succinct and accessible.
Hot Shots is a worthy addition to any photographers camera bag, not just bookshelf!
