Product Highlights
  • By Peter Ensenberger

Digital cameras, Software galore, and a world-wide obsession with pixels can cause one to forget the basics. Focal Press and Peter Ensberger recognize how crowded the photo community is with these topics, that's why they decided to produce the book, Focus On Composing Photos: Focus on the Fundamentals. A good image starts with design, and if you don't have that, no sensor, no matter how big can save your photo.

Ensberger breaks down composition into easily understood chunks that any level of photographer can internalize. In other words, you don't need an art degree to understand the theory behind the technique. Basics like the rule of thirds, how to obtain good highlights and shadows, and other useful design elements are presented in this volume - all guaranteed to make the way you see forever different, forever improved. The book also includes beautiful examples by the author, assignments after each chapter, and tip boxes spread throughout.

Chapter 1: Strong Focal Point; Chapter 2: Rule of Thirds; Chapter 3: Simplicity; Chapter 4: Leading Lines; Chapter 5: Lens Choice and Cropping; Chapter 6: Highlights and Shadows; Chapter 7: Breaking the Rules
Beautifully designed with full color images on every page which makes it much easier to remember everything you've learned once you're behind the camera
