HOW TO PHOTOGRAPH YOUR WORLD

Viki Holland's advice on lighting, composition and subject matter are rudimentary, but at least her photographic demonstrations show some of the free spirit and inventiveness she advocates. T-shirted kids in a variety of attitudes and angles on the page demonstrate the need to CHANGE YOUR VIEW; a baby opossum, Zork, poses for some photos that teach the importance of patience, planning and uncluttered backgrounds. Certainly the lesson on light sources will be the most valuable for kids wanting to get more out of their automatic cameras, and though Holland's suggested subjects -- family, pets, still lifes, tricks and funny faces -- are hardly that original, their happy expression here will encourage anyone who needs help opening up his camera eye.
