Composition: From Snapshots to Great Shots teaches you how to get the best shots from your camera. However, it isn't a book about how to use your camera but a book that explains and motivates you to concentrate on your composition.

There are certain rules of composition that have stood the proverbial test of time - the Rule of Thirds, for example. Yet, this book goes further in getting you to think about and executing more dynamic images. Through the use of color, shape, angles, and contrast, you'll come to understand how a finely composed image stays in the viewer's mind. Irrespective of whether you prefer portraits, action shots, landscapes, or events, you'll come away with a solid understanding and appreciation of how composition can make or break a shot.

        As a beginner, only having my D5300 for less than 6 month, the book has been very helpful. It has given me many things to think about and I have already been able to put things I have learned into practice.
