Publisher's Summary

In Photography Composition, you will find all you need to know to learn the basics of composition. It will teach you the proper terms and ways to apply rules that you might already know instinctively yet not quite understand why they work the way they do.
Here's a preview of what you'll learn:



Happy accidents: This tip teaches you how to pay attention to the following rules in order to replicate happy accidents and to be able to more purposefully craft your photographs.
Rule of thirds: It teaches you where to place points of interest in your photos.
Leading lines: This tip shows you how lines can help move a viewer's eye around the composition.
Move around: Moving around gives you access to different perspectives, which might actually bring better compositions than what you first assumed.
Horizon lines: Different from leading lines, horizon lines break up the frame into two parts.
Shape: You will learn how to utilize shape that already exists in the frame and how to create it where you want it using points of interest.
Foreground and background: This tip mentions usage of midground and why you should take advantage of the entire depth of your frame, not just the immediate foreground.
Weight: You can give weight to your photos by placing a "heavier" subject to one side or the top or bottom of a frame.
Juxtaposition: This basically means that you will place two opposite things side by side.
Balance: Balance - ironically, you may think - is achieved in odd numbers.
Tension: You can create tension by examining the relationships of your subjects and composing them accordingly.
Framing: Framing can dramatically alter a viewer's perception of a scene.
Color: Color can often be used as a crutch by new photographers.

Photography pointers the considered way

As a practiced photographer this has just reaffirmed what I already know and has given me a few pointers I need to revisit. These books are more essays of consideration as opposed to instruction booklets to follow. Therefore, I would not recommend to an absolute beginner, good basis for students and practioners who just need a bit of a break down.
