The Photographers Eye has been one of the most successful books about the art of photography ever published. In it, Michael Freeman analysed the art of photographic composition the arrangement of subjects within the frame and in doing so inspired hundreds of thousands of photographers to develop their work and create more sophisticated and rewarding images. In this volume, Freeman looks at what makes a photograph great and explores the ways that top photographers achieve this goal time and time again. The first section explains how the digital revolution has democratised the photographic arts, while the second section looks at the intention behind a photo.
This is followed by an analysis of style from classical harmonies to minimalist looks. Finally, he looks at how this will affect your photographic process: theres advice on avoiding cliché, creating a picture story, and shooting with post-production in mind. As ever, Michaels thinking is illustrated by his own stunning photography and explained in clear, unpretentious language with newly-commissioned diagrams illustrating the more theoretical points. The Photographers Mind will be one of this years major books on the subject and is set to become a well-used addition to the library of any serious photographer.
