Site: Robert Allerton Art Library

A few photographs of How to Photograph Hawaii, Robert Wenkam’s 1973 guide to capturing Hawai‘i at its best, are presented with a few screen shots (2013) of webpages sourced from Google Image Search results generated by entering a query for the same headings that appear in the photographs of Wenkam’s original text.

“‘DON’T TELL ME how to take pictures!’ So I won’t tell you. I’m not even going to suggest what camera to use…In this book, I want to help inspire you to create professional-quality photographs for your own personal satisfaction. I want your albums to be beautiful and your pictures remembered. I want your friends to accept invitations to your slide shows with happy anticipation. I want to help you see and discover all the excitement and beauty of the land and the people of Hawaii.”—Robert Wenkam
