A great photo is more than being in the right place at the right time. Amphoto's book, Learning to See Creatively: Design, Color and Composition in Photography, by Bryan Peterson, covers the basic elements of design. Learn how to really "see" and hone your photographic vision, to turn your concepts into reality, on paper. Design concepts are not innate, and the author shows you how these basic building blocks of all artistic expression can be learned by anyone. Filled with Peterson's own work, you'll see just what the book is talking about and feel inspiration to go out and make your own photographs, applying these concepts. Revised, this edition covers the latest insights in digital, and features a section on color as a design element.

Using inventive photos from his own stunning portfolio, author and veteran photographer Bryan Peterson deconstructs creativity for photographers. He details the basic techniques that went into not only taking a particular photo, but also provides insights on how to improve upon it-helping readers avoid the visual pitfalls and technical dead ends that can lead to dull, uninventive photographs
