TellThe only reason I did not give this 5 stars is that I think that in some cases the text refers to the wrong diagram and that some of the text below the photos could have been a little descriptive and helpful I don t often write reviews but this book is really good There are so many books out there on camera techniue and how to understand your cameraThis book is different in that from the outset it suggests a balance between good design and good subject It doesn t help with the latter but regarding design it really breaks it downStarting with THE POINT IT PROGRESSES TOWARDS MULTIPLE POINTS VISUAL LINES point it progresses towards multiple points visual lines opposed to material lines shapes colours contrasts etc I found the images throughout to be striking and very useful My advice would probably be Read Digest Experiment with what you ve read then Progress He explains how we perceive and therefore why you SHOULD DO IT THE SAME WAY HAVING SAID THAT do it the same way Having said that he does of course say there are no rules just guidelines You have to now rules to break them Now I can see thatIt s been noted that some of the diagrams maybe don t match up and he refers to images on previous.

I am a relative newcomer to photography having started in the digital age I bought this book to improve my composition and I think in time it will do thatAt first it seems a little daunting as I can imagine this being a course text However once I started working through it I could see the points that the author was
"trying to illustrate "
to illustrate author has reduced it to a number of sections about different compositional elements These include points lines shapes and colour Each has a number of photographs to represent the points being made and which are referred to in the text and often additional diagrams to further illustrate these pointsMy main problems came with the sections relating to colour as there seemed to be a lot in this and relatively little page room devoted to it compared to elements such as lines and points and it seems to be a complicated theory to grasp That said I am starting to look for some of these compositional elements when composing photos and when editing them so some of the text must have made an impression Whether my photography improves as a result only time and some objective criticism will.
