Book Description

Oct. 1 2003
Almost everyone can “see” in the conventional sense, but developing photographic vision takes practice. Learning to See Creatively helps photographers visualize their work, and the world, in a whole new light.

Now totally rewritten, revised, and expanded, this best-selling guide takes a radical approach to creativity. It explains how it is not some gift only for the “chosen few” but actually a skill that can be learned and applied. 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.

This revised edition features the latest information on digital photography and digital imaging software, as well as an all-new section on color as a design element. Learning to See Creatively is the definitive reference for any photographers looking for a fresh perspective on their work.

First Sentence
The human eye sees in much the same way as a 50mm lens, and therefore, the 50mm focal length lens is appropriately called a normal lens. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars New Pair of Eyes Dec 6 2003
By DY
Format:Paperback
This review is based on the revised version published in Oct 2003.
Excellent pictures contained within and the author teaches you ways to see every day life through a new creative perspective.
Following the instructions, you will soon find yourself also shooting on your belly or lying on your back for a whole new viewpoint. Many of us unfortunately only shoot from eye level or at a posture thats convenient and that itself limits creatively.
This is one of the better reads I have come across. Worth every penny. Thank you Bryan, I have learned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait Jan. 17 2004
Format:Paperback
When I heard that this book was going to be revised, I waited for it in anxious anticipation - it was well worth the wait!
Sometimes all that is needed to improve a composition is to change one's perspective, which is often pointed out in this book. This is something I'm learning to take advantage of, and can see the improvement in my pictures.
I was also happy to see a section added dealing with color and one on digital imaging.
If you've got a basic understanding of photography behind you, then I'd highly recommend this book!

I own the previous edition of this book, so I waited with anxious expectation for its revision. This is more than a revision, it's a brand new book, a necessary addition to the theory and practice of implementing creative vision in making photographs. I recommend this book to all who wish to receive inspiration and mentoring in realizing their own creative vision in photography and even general artistic picture making. The text is written in Bryan Peterson's inimitable down to earth, friendly yet knowledgeable style. The photographs are truly inspirational. This book is a keeper!
