After the camera the photographer’s most important tool is the eye for a photo. We all want to create, powerful, dramatic and impactful images. But we can’t get there without an understanding of the fundamentals of composition.

Mastering Composition takes you on a journey beyond the rule of thirds and explores all the principles of composition you need to understand in order to create beautifully designed and emotive photos.

First, you need to understand how your camera and lens see the subject. Then you need to learn how to see the subject in abstract terms – as a series of lines, shapes, tones, patterns and colours. Finally, you need to be able to see and exploit the visual relationships between these elements.

This ebook shows you how. It’s presented in 20 easy to digest lessons and includes two case studies with renown photographers Betina La Plante and Michael Diblicek.

Mastering Composition: A Photographer’s Guide to Seeing is written for you:

  • It explores the principles of composition that master photographers and artists have used for centuries to create beautiful images.
  • It’s easy to read. The pages are laid out and beautifully illustrated, making it easier for you to learn.
  • It’s very practical. You can treat each chapter as a creative exercise and go out and put it into practice.
  • It has depth and will become an invaluable reference guide you’ll return to again and again as your understanding of composition deepens.

About Author Andrew S GibsonSelf-portrait

My interest in photography began when my parents bought me a Ricoh KR-10m camera over 20 years ago. Since that day I progressed from colour negative to slide and black and white film and finally to digital, when I bought my first digital SLR, an EOS 350D, in 2006. During that time I’ve taken photos in over 60 countries, studied for a degree in photography and worked as Technical Editor for EOS magazine. Now I’m a freelance writer and I make a living writing about photography. In recent years I’ve lived in the UK, China and New Zealand, which is now my home. My clients include EOS magazine, Craft & Vision and Peachpit Press. I also carry out technical editing on forthcoming photography books, and design photography courses for Foto-Classes.
