The two fundamental aspects that make an image a keeper are its composition and content. This book reveals all about those aspects that the author has mastered in seventy years of photography.
You will benefit from his practical suggestions, all illustrated by 178 images included in its 62 pages of useful content. And you’ll enjoy the occasional tongue in cheek approach to ideas that come from so many years of experience. The author even includes examples of his work that have composition defects and he points them out to reinforce the principles!
This book is NOT a coffee table book although it’s loaded with memorable images. A pro not given to praise pronounced the images “amazing”. And this book is NOT an “overview” or an “introduction”; it’s full of specific, meaty suggestions and examples. It won’t teach you how to operate your camera; there are plenty of other ways to learn that. It will, however, teach you to select and study subjects or scenes and to compose for lasting effect. You will learn how to build an image, image construction for landscapes, the drama that lighting can add, cropping for maximum effect, and all kinds of ideas about content to look for and how to photograph it. The author refers to all of this work as “pre-processing”, the things you need to do to have keepers on your flash cards.

The book is only $9.95, about the price of a good glass of wine. The wine is good but soon gone; the book is yours to refer to over and over.
