What other people are saying about this book:

Eva's book "Transcendent Light" is sheer magic. This book will help emerging photographers enhance their technical skills and better articulate impressionist techniques. Eva's approach, which is both simple and structured, allows the reader to really connect with the imagination, drawing attention to personal practices and overlooked truths. One such example is Eva's description of how the camera provides limitless boundaries when it is used as a tool to mould the creative process. It is beautifully illustrated with easy to follow directions, and I confidently admit that Transcendent Light now sits in my library of essential books. Wendy Roche
