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.
If you're looking to go beyond amatuer and make that transition to take really good photos, here's a time saver. By going into the details of photography from line, shape, texture, to the rule of thirds to tips on macro photography, he starts by making you a serious photographical critic AND I assure you that you'll see things you never did before picking this book.
All in all, he makes you that much more fond of photography than you already are (otherwise you wouldn't be reading this review!). This is a book that i will be sure to thumb from time to time and is worth every cent spent if not more!
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!

Why writing old stuff? There are good principles but the section for digital is base on 2002. No that book is just a money maker. SorryPublished 4 months ago by Andre Dionne
This book captured my imagination better than I thought possible. The material is relevant, quite easily digested and presented in a not-overly-technical form. Read morePublished on Sept. 12 2010 by ianoclast
