Format: Paperback
"Picture Composition," a skillfully completed book in which the compositional structures of a picture is conveyed to you by the author instead of applying subjective rules which differ from person to person. This book proves that composition can be learned and/or taught. The skills taught in this book are useful for visualizing as applied in writing, film, and painting.

5.0 out of 5 stars inspiration 17 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
excellent! this book helps you to understand why shots work in certain situations and not others. A good explanation into the theory of composition, it serves to inspire. If you want to find out how to frame a shot this book is not for you. However, if you want to find out how to think before you frame a shot, then this is well worth the read.
