I started wondering what do I want to read, to know in the next step of my passion for photography. OK I know the basics, I don’t want any more gear, I got it with the light and all the settings, so what’s next? Am I totally ready to make stunning pictures to make anyone say WOW? No.
I saw a book promising to review the principles of composition and visual design to provide techniques and exercises for breaking away from traditional concepts. In this third edition of Photography and the Art of Seeing, Freeman Patterson says that aspiring photographers are made aware of the barriers to seeing and learn how to observe, imagine and express in a personal and creative way.
By reading this book you won’t come away with a list of rules and instructions about when to apply them and will you also not end up with a cheat sheet of camera settings that achieve particular effects. Instead, you will learn new ways to look at, think about, understand, and portray the world you see through the lens of your camera giving you the chance to become more empowered to express yourself in your photography.
As the word workshop says, you will encounter intriguing, mind-expanding exercises but also many nice photo are provided for your joy and learn.
