Capturing The Moment: The Heart of Photography
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

Capturing The Moment: The Heart of PhotographyFocal Press has published Capturing The Moment: The Heart of Photography. This is not a book about the fundamentals of shutter speed or how your camera works; it is a book that will teach photographers of all levels how to work with their cameras to capture moments whether they are occurring quickly or unfolding over many hours.

Moments in all forms are the true core of photography, and this book will explain how to anticipate them, recognise them, choose them, and capture them, through the eyes and wisdom of award-winning photographer and celebrated author Michael Freeman...

Photographic Composition: Principles of Image Design
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

Photographic Composition: Principles of Image DesignAll fine artists share a common goal: to combine individual elements into a convincing, cohesive whole that tells a story or expresses an intention. Photography is especially suited to this pursuit because the photographer can create multiple, distinct images of a single subject using a variety of design techniques. The display on a digital camera instantly shows the arrangement of elements in an image, allowing the photographer to make changes and refine their creation as they work.

Alrecht Rissler believes that a firm understanding of image design is as important as having an observant eye or having the technical knowledge to operate a camera. Photographic Composition presents the most important concepts of image design and offers 250 beautiful photographs to illustrate them. By applying these concepts to your own work, you will greatly improve your photographic eye and your ability to compose an ideal image...
