Review by Matthew Bamberg:

“New Image Frontiers--Defining the Future of Photography” has arrived in bookstores around the country. Book reveals past, present and future trends in photography. From hardware to software, aesthetics to documentation, this book discusses current advances in photography and predictions for the future, including comments from top photographers and others in the business. Addressing the basics of photography as they are applied to defining photography's future, the book's content is culled from a number of important industry resources as well as interviews with master photographers and gallery owners.

“New Image Frontiers--Defining the Future of Photography” is for anyone contemplating a new camera purchase. It covers every type of camera—point-and-shoots, dSLRs, Micro-Four-Thirds systems (MFTs) and camera phones that are sold today with predictions about how they will change in the future. Descriptions of the latest cameras and lenses include their specs (sensor size, resolution, focal lengths) with explanations about how each spec value affects picture-taking and predictions as to how these specs will change in the future.

Book includes interviews with gallery owners Michael Foley and Laurence Miller about the state of the fine art photography scene today, the influence the famous photographers of the 20th Century has had on photography today and on photography of the future. The book contains photographs by Thomas Allen, Martin Klimas and Alexandre Orion from Michael Foley's gallery and Denis Darzacq, Aaron Siskind and Jessica Backhaus from Laurence Miller's gallery. The photographs are discussed in terms of the changes photography has undergone since the 20th Century, and how they will impact those that take up the craft in the future.

Photographers David Nitche, Gary Ortman, Robert Contreras, Betty Meyers Pauwels, Kris Krug, Susanna Kraus, Rene G. Boscio, Courtney Ott, Henry Posner and Vik Orenstein and John Maloof (for images by Vivian Maier) also describe each of their styles of photography and use of the latest photography technology. Lighting expert Author Coleman gives his opinion about new lighting technology and the effect video is having on still photography.

This is the seventh book from Matthew Bamberg, a writer and photographer whose company by the same name has produced published products for education and technology for nearly a decade.
