Book Review "Shooting with Soul" by Alessandra Cave


For anyone in a creative and artistic profession it is essential to be continually inspired and challenged. The best creative souls establish mentors, collaborate with peers, and work on projects that stretch and expand their skills. Another solid source of inspiration include magazines, blogs and books. One such book that provides a wealth of information for the professional and amateur photographer alike is “Shooting with Soul” by Alessandra Cave.

Alessandra currently resides in San Francisco but has strong ties to Brazil where she is from. Between her editorial and commercial work Alessandra divides her time with her passions including photography workshops, writing and raising her young daughter.

Many photographers are familiar with Alessandra from her work with Shutter Sisters, an online blogging forum. Jumping off of that platform Alessandra developed a strong following and continues to amass new fans through her evocative book of soulful exploration and self-expression.

“Shooting with Soul” leads the reader through 44 weeks of distinctive and thoughtful prompts designed to illuminate the creative spirit. Alessandra explores various camera technology and shows that whether you have a film-based, digital SLR or phone camera, we all have unique stories to tell through our singular soulful lens.

This is a wonderful visual and thought-provoking book that should be explored by any creative professional to fuel that creative energy.
