If the great Scott Kelby can call him Teacher, then Joe McNally is probably the greatest photography guru since Ansel Adams. Now, it can be told: Scott took one of Joeâ€™s photography classes and liked it (liked it? he worships the McNally!) and suggested that Joe should write a book.
That book has materialized. The Moment It Clicks: Photography secrets from one of the world’s top shooters is now off the press (New Riders Publishing, $50); it offers us a glimpse of the authorâ€™s fame as a sought-after educator. The book features outstanding images that inspire, with text that teaches the reader how to overcome imaging problems and offers tips about lighting and exposure.
â€œIf youâ€™re interested in learning about photography, itâ€™s a good book for you. If youâ€™re interested in just looking at some pictures and reading some stories, itâ€™s a good book,â€ says Joe.
Itâ€™s a good thing the book is there for us who are not within 500 miles of Joe to attend his classes. Thanks, Joe; thanks, Scott.
