'When I first heard about this book I wondered how a topic like composition would take 190+ pages to cover - but the above six chapters do it really well and provide readers with lots of ideas, examples, theory and lessons. I particularly like that this book is not just about theory or compositional rules - but challenges the reader to look at their own intentions and processes. I particularly enjoyed chapter 5 on intent which I'd never given much consideration to previously.
The images in this book complement the words very well. Not only do you get photos but also a variety of diagrams (including some helpful line diagrams) that illustrate what you're seeing in the images by reducing them to lines and shapes. This gives the examples a lot more usefulness as they are effectively unpacked before you.' 9/10 --Darren Rowse, www.digital-photography-school.com
Michael Freeman, professional photographer and best-selling author, was born in England in 1945, took a Masters in Geography at Brasenose College, Oxford University, and then worked in advertising in London for six years. In 1971 he made the life-changing decision to travel up the Amazon with two secondhand cameras, and when Time-Life used many of the pictures he came back with, he embarked on a full-time photographic career.
Since then, working for clients that include all the world's major magazines, most notably the Smithsonian Magazine (for which he has shot more than 40 stories over 30 years), Freeman's reputation as one of the world's leading reportage photographershas been consolidated. Of his many books, which have sold over 4 million copies worldwide, more than 60 titles are on the practice of photography. For this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture.
Freeman's books on photography have been translated into 27 languages.

Not fully read this book yet but already hating the kindle version. The pictures used are very small, and when you zoom in the quality of them is awful. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Stenward
I highly recommend this book. If you want to develop your photography skills, composition is one of the key elements to making photos work.Published 6 months ago by Arild Vikan
I like the book, the information is great but the author is not really engaging.Published 6 months ago by Mr C Simmons
I bought this book because I found myself in a photgraphic rut. What I wanted was a new way of 'seeing' and ideas to experiment with. Read morePublished 6 months ago by zen rockman
