While some photographers have an innate genius for composing an image, it's also a skill that anyone can learn. Acclaimed photographer Steve Mulligan reveals the ideas, techniques, and equipment that underlie good composition, with the aim of helping readers develop their own personal vision. With magnificent color and black-and-white photos illustrating his points, Mulligan discusses such key ideas as viewpoint, framing, symmetry, light, and the rule of thirds, as well as the effects of exposure, depth of field, and shutter speed. From using the computer to improve your shots to displaying your work, this book covers it all. - Suitable for both digital and conventional film photographers - An accessible look at how the art of composition works in theory and practice
