LEARN HOW COMPOSITION CAN TRULY MAKE OR BREAK YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS
Good composition—or the effective arrangement of all of the visual elements that fall within the frame of the final image—is essential to the success of any photograph. When the placement of the various image elements are well-organized, the viewer is engaged in the image; without an effective composition, the eye wanders through the frame and the intended subject may even be diminished by distracting colors, shapes, or other pictorial elements.
In this book, Ernst Wildi provides the critical skills you need to fine-tune your images and ensure the most dynamic, powerful image possible. Easy-to-read text is paired with ample before-and-after photos, making it easy to see how each technique will affect your final images. Special chapters on the unique compositional concerns inherent in working with portrait subjects, architectural subjects, moving subjects, and panoramic images are also included in this comprehensive book.
With pointed tips geared toward working with digital cameras, this up-to-date book offers something for every photographer.
