Louisiana Through My Lens --- Review

I received Louisiana Through My Lens through Net Galley.  It is a coffee table book with photography by Chad Guidry and the design by Yvette Naquin.  I chose the book because I will be taking a trip to New Orleans later this year.  While the book did not feature photographs from New Orleans it did exhibit some beautiful work taken in the bayous of Louisiana.

The only thing lacking from the book was more information about where and when the photos were taken.  I would have liked to know more about the pictures.   The other thing was Net Galley offered a disclaimer that the quality of the photos was not as good in my electronic copy as in the actual book.  For the most part I did not think that it dismissed the quality of the photos to any serious degree.  There were a couple pictures that seemed a bit fuzzy, and I don't think it fair to judge based on the digital copy.

Overall, I found it a very attractive book of photography.  I am not sure it is worth the list price of $35 for only 44 pages, however.

Beautiful pictures of a spectacular area of our county. The windernss and swapt look better on paper than when you are actually in them. True of many things.
