Photography Book Review: Super Blue by Katsuhiko Tokunaga 

(If you can't see the video, please click here.)

It's far too easy in the digital age to dismiss true craftsmanship in the world of photography. As the number of people with affordable quality cameras had increased exponentially, so has the number of quality photographs. It's just a numbers game - more photographers means more great photographs, and digital cameras have given us the ability to learn from our mistakes, and improve, incredibly quickly.

This makes Katsuhiko Tokunagas work, on 35mm film, as seen in his book "Super Blue" all the more impressive. Take it from me, this work is breath-taking, produced by a craftsman and artist at the top of his game. 

Quality colour photography is incredibly difficult. Too often we see poor images helped along with the crutch of black and white - but Mr Tokunaga embraces colour in a way that'll have you deleting your Silver Efex Pro and onOne B&W plugins. This is color photography how it should be done - vivid, vibrant and real.

Super Blue is a collection of stunning photographs of mostly military fighter jets, most in the air with a few on the ground, but it's also much more than that. This book is a lesson about what is achievable if you know your technique, embrace your art, specialise and become a master. Recommended.

Thanks, Rob.
