A must have to learn about photo composition,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Photograph: Composition and Color Design (Hardcover)
Mante has been the master in teaching photo composition since the 70s, applying the theories of Bauhaus founder Itten to black&white photography and then to color design in photography. "The Photograph" is his latest book and the sum of his works in teaching and photographing. While the copy occasionally tends to be a bit too explanatory (he is a German professor...) the photos are spendid. A great way to understand what makes a great picture vs.a nice picture. Together with Michael Freeman's book series "The photographer's Eye", "The photographer's mind", etc. these books are the ideal collection for the enthusiastic photographer who wants to understand photo composition and design.
