Mastering Composition is for photographers who want to learn to see and create better composed photos.
After the camera the photographer’s most important tool is the eye for a photo. We all want to create, powerful, dramatic and impactful images. But we can’t get there without an understanding of the fundamentals of composition.
Mastering Composition takes you on a journey beyond the rule of thirds and explores all the principles of composition you need to understand in order to create beautifully designed and emotive photos.
First, you need to understand how your camera and lens see the subject. Then you need to learn how to see the subject in abstract terms – as a series of lines, shapes, tones, patterns and colours. Finally, you need to be able to see and exploit the visual relationships between these elements.
This ebook shows you how. It’s presented in 20 easy to digest lessons and includes two case studies with renown photographers Betina La Plante and Michael Diblicek.
