Composition: From Snapshots to Great Shots from Peachpit Press is a thorough guide that extends beyond your camera's user manual to highlight several concepts of photographic composition. Authored by Laurie S. Excell with photographic contributions by John Batdorff, David Brommer, Rick Rickman, and Steve Simon, this 288 page book offers numerous tips on how to elevate your practice. Sample topics include how to use the exposure triangle (ISO, shutter speed, aperture) to inform and affect composition; how to use shadow and light to direct viewers' attention; working with lines and shapes to create visual paths; how the roll of color, and use of complementary and contrasting colors, can be utilized; and how to recognize and work with different spatial relationships depending on the type of image you are making. In addition to its text, the book is also illustrated with large, vibrant photos from the contributors and you are additionally invited to share your photographs to the book's own Flickr group.
