Product Description

About the Author

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.

I'm really enjoying Michael Freeman's "The Photographer's ..." series (Eye, Mind, and now Vision).

Yes, there is a need for books explaining the basics of shutter speed, aperture, depth-of-field, film/sensor sensitivity etc. However, in my opinion, the last thing the world needs is yet more books covering these topics. Unfortunately, many photographic authors/publishers seem to disagree. They end up producing books with what good original content there is watered down by reams of pages about how (for instance) telephoto lenses are good for wildlife and wide-angle lenses for exaggerating perspective.

So three cheers - and five stars - to Michael for eschewing this trend and producing a series of books that covers the creative, rather than technical, dimension of photography. This is more difficult to do as an author, but results in books being equally useful for both beginner and advanced photographers. This book expands the audience even further by helping non-photographers increase their appreciation of the art and what its masters have created over the past century and a half.

Even though Freeman has produced some great images over the decades, I particularly like that in this book he uses - and comments on - the work of others including such greats Paul Strand, Elliot Erwitt and Jeff Wall.

The Photographer's Vision: Understanding and Appreciating Great Photography Already owning two of Michael Freeman's other wonderful books, I bought this one with similar expectations. It is different from the others which teach you composition etc, in that it is like sitting face to face with the author and discussing how one looks at creating a photograph. For example he discusses a photograph of a Jade sculpture of a horse and how the height of the camera if just a few millimetres either way greatly affects the end result. A very relaxing book providing plenty of brain food.

A good photograph is subjective, but understanding what makes a great one is another step to being a better photographer!
This book gives insight to previsualization too.

I liked the book 'The Photographer's eye' from Michael Freeman. It improved my compositional skills to a greater extent. It changed the way I think about taking photographs.

I purchased this book as I consider photography as an art than just a hobby. I wanted to understand how great photographers were able to bring in that artistic dimension to photography. Michael Freeman does not disappoint. Indeed he does provide various evidences with great details. It is very useful & enjoyable. Its more like a reference book which sort of kicks ur imagination. Or probably would try to justify your point of view or perception about a concept/subject of ur photography that might act as a catalyst for ur future photographs.

I felt the author could have explained more in terms of the application of the gears used..

However a good book nevertheless.

The content of Michael Freeman's books is very informative and I have read three of them so far. I find the title of this one a bit ironic really: what is The Photographer's Vision like? Answer: not as good as it was before I started reading! The first page of each chapter is fine but the body font is minute. What a shame, I don't need strong glasses and yes, I was wearing them! Good content but the font makes my eyes ache.
