The celebrated photographer Annie Leibovitz provides the stories and technical descriptions of how some of her most famous images came to be. Starting in 1974, with her coverage of Nixon's resignation, and culminating with her controversial portraits of Queen Elizabeth II early in 2007, Leibovitz explains what professional photographers do and how they do it. Approximately 90 images are discussed in detail, plus the circumstances under which they were taken, with specific technical information (what camera, what settings, what lighting, where the images appeared). Leibovitz's fans and lovers of great photography will find her stories of how one learns to see--and then how to photograph--inspiring.
