THE ART OF PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPOSITION: A 30-Step Guide to Mastery
Owning a camera is only one half of the requirements for making a good photo. The other half is the ability to apply an understanding of the principles of design to your image. The technical side must be balanced by the artistic side, like the two wings of a bird, for your photos to excel.
The Art of Photographic Composition is a mini-course in 30 stages to guide you to an understanding of how to work with those design principles to create great shots. They are the same principles that fine art photographers, painters and other visual artists use to express themselves. These are the rules that will enable you to create a photograph that can truly be called art.
