Design is the single most important factor in creating a successful photograph. The ability to see the potential for a strong picture and then organize the graphic elements into an effective, compelling composition has always been one of the key skills in making photographs. Digital photography has brought a new, exciting aspect to design - first because the instant feedback from a digital camera allows immediate appraisal and improvement; and second because image-editing tools make it possible to alter and enhance the design after the shutter has been pressed. This has had a profound effect on the way digital photographers take pictures. Now published in sixteen languages, The Photographer's Eye continues to speak to photographers everywhere. The book explores all the traditional approaches to composition and design, but crucially, it also addresses the new digital technique of shooting in the knowledge that a picture will later be edited, manipulated, or montaged to result in a final image that may be very different from the one seen in the viewfinder.

Because in a former book author writes beautiful essay in order to explain composition. Here, on the other hand, he shows you how to do it using graphs, point of view of camera, angles of sun, shades and so on. This book is graphic and it is better than Photographers Eye.
Do you want to hear eloquent prose as to how make your picture astonishing? Buy, former book. Do you want to see, really see, how it is done? Buy this one. Nicholas Top Contributor: This is a really important book.
Most photography books are solely concerned with cameras and lenses, but this book focuses pun intended on the psychology of the way images are interpreted and understood by people, which I think is far more important than equipment. The book is beautifully written and filled with gorgeous photographs illustrating the photographic and artistic concepts explained within.
Photography has become bigger than ever before, and with the affordability of high-quality DSLRs and the image-sharing world of social media, everyone is a photographer today.
In and of itself that is not a bad thing since Photography as a medium of documenting life as well as a medium for creative self-expression should be available to everyone. The problem, I feel, is that we've become too obsessed with technology, and we've forgotten that understanding the psychology and philosophy involved in all visual art is of paramount importance in creating images. Most books and YouTube videos are dedicated to catering to the consumer mentality. Everyone wants the newest, most expensive cameras with the most bells and whistles and highest megapixel counts, not realizing that you can take a great photograph with ANY camera, even point and shoot cameras and mobile phones.
But the way to do that is to understand the elements of a good photograph and to think deeply about your compositions.
That's where a book like this comes in. The author also wrote another book entitled The Photographer's Mind, which is equally a great book and also deals with the psychology of image making. Both books should be on the bookshelf of any serious photographer or artist.
This is a catalog of compositional ideas for organizing the visual elements of a photograph. The catalog is organize into 10 major areas of interest, then further divided into 80 subgroups.
For each subgroup, the concept being discussed is illustrated by a full page photograph followed by a second page or more of discussion using mostly graphical diagrams illustrating the organizing principles involved.
These pages give a thorough and enlightening education in designing and constructing photographs. Note that the list is NOT organized by the subject of the photograph nature, cityscape, people.
Rather it contains the design elements that determine how ALL pictures look framing, placing, dividing, viewpoint, color, etc. In this sense the catalog is applicable to all photos regardless of the subject matter. The methodology used to discuss each of the subgroups is unusual.
Verbal description are kept to minimum while the main points are illustrated with graphical explanations. The reasoning is that the discussion of graphical images might best be conducted using graphics. It works well once you get into the spirit of the venture. The question remains of what to do with this valuable information and analysis. It is not likely that many photographers will memorize the essence of 80 compositional subgroups. Most will probably start with their present range of photo subjects and relate these photos to the analyses shown in the book.
Comparing what they do to compose their pictures with the analyses shown by Freeman can help clarify their photographic thinking. Further, investigation of related subgroups can broaden their photographic thinking. They can experiment with new compositional variations and expand their photographic horizons. Freeman's great contribution is in providing a comprehensive framework that photogrphers can use in many ways to help expand their visual perception.
I have about 50 books on photography. They are the "recommended" books and are actually just rubbish But The Photographer's Eys is pure genius. I've read this book about ten times and I'm still learning from it.
This book is an excellent look at the framing and composition of photos. It is very comprehensively written and beautifully illustrated. While composition is something that is ultimately, in the eye of the photographer, Freeman operates on the principal that you need to understand all the basics before you can specialize.
Not only that, but the underlying knowledge of many different ways to compose a photo allows a photographer to create the best setting for each one, instead of always relying on the rule of thirds or the golden rectangle.
The way that the information is presented, essentially from the outside edge inward, requires the reader to pay close attention and think about what's being said - this is not a quick and simple "just do this and all your pics will be InstaGram worthy! Freeman writes very well and intelligently about some difficult, often passed-over ideas. He is not afraid to delve into areas like the intention or message behind a photograph, and how best to communicate those ideas.
His book is definitely the comprehensive guide to this subject. See all reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers. Learn more about Amazon Giveaway.
