This review is from: Photographically Speaking: A Deeper Look at Creating Stronger Images (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
Have been slowly digesting this book, and really enjoying it. Looking at the contents page before I bought it, the material seemed quite similar to a lot of other books on composition, covering rule of thirds, leading lines etc. However, what makes this book far more useful that certain others I have read is that it goes into more detail about why certain things work. It is also illustrated with some really good photos, which certainly gives you more confidence that the author knows what they are talking about. The message throughout the book is that good photos come from really thinking about what you want to include in the shot and why, and the final section of the book consists of 20 of the authors best shots with a detailed examination of why he thinks each one worked. Definitely a book I will read more than once.
