Michael Freeman - The Photographer's Eye
Design is the single most important factor in creating successful photographs. The ability to see the potential for a strong picture and then organise the graphic elements into an effective, compelling composition has always been one of the key skills in taking photographs. Of course, 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 book shows how anyone can develop an eye for 'seeing' great digital photos. The Photographer's Eye explores all the traditional approaches to composition and design, but crucially it also addresses digital techniques that extend the possibilities of the medium without compromising the photographer's vision.
