Description
The most important piece of photographic equipment you own is your mind, but do you know how it works? Do you know how to use it effectively when you take a shot? This book guides you through the visual perception process in easy to understand descriptions. At each step the importance to your making a spectacular shot is explained leading you to painless photographic compositions. How many times have you seen something beautiful, carefully composed a photo, and taken the picture, only to discover that your "masterpiece" looks like nothing special? Have you ever looked at a photograph that you took and asked, “Why did I take this?” One of the great questions the serious photographer faces every time a photo is taken is “have I captured what I wanted to show?” Have you ever wondered where the rules of composition come from? If the answer is YES to any of these questions then you need this book.
About the author
I am a freelance professional photographer and educator who teaches for tours, photographic techniques seminars and encouragement of self development. A photographer since high school, I also have an advanced degree in physics with over 150 published papers and have taught at the graduate level. It was a strong desire to understand how my mind guides my photography that made me learn about visual perception.
