October 17, 2021
There is a lot more to photography than simply picking up a camera, pointing it toward something, and tripping the shutter. Achieving a great photograph requires thought and preparation, an understanding of the photographic process, and a firm grasp of how light and composition affect a photo. There must be personal involvement and personal expression. There must be experimentation, with the recognition that only a small percentage of experiments end successfully. This book is sure to inspire photographers of all skill levels – from beginners to seasoned professionals – to think deeply about the issues involved in creating successful photographs.
