Basics Photography 01: Composition, Paperback Book

Basics Photography 01: Composition Paperback

Part of the Basics Photography series



Strong images only come about through a combination of technical excellence and thorough composition.

While there is plenty of technical advice, photographers often turn to fine-art sources for the so-called 'rules of composition'.

This book, however, acknowledges photography's quite different dynamic and offers a contemporary approach to composition more suited to the medium.

The second edition of Basics Photography 01: Composition offers a contemporary approach to composition.

Its six core chapters cover historical background and personal motivation, formal elements, space and time within the photographic frame and composition in real-world situations.

The Basics Photography series, originally published by AVA Publishing, comprises a collection of titles including: Lighting, Composition, Capturing Colour, Post-Production Black & White, Post-Production Colour, Working in Black & White and Exposure.

Easily accessible and highly readable, the books clearly explain and explore fundamental photographic concepts; they are fully indexed and illustrated with clear diagrams and inspiring imagery, building to provide an essential introduction to the subject.
