Understanding Composition, Paperback Book


Professional photographer David Taylor's concise, jargon-free text guides the reader through the basics of composition, why it matters, and how to attune the mind to the art of looking.

The main composition concepts - from the Rule of Thirds, the Golden Section, the Rule of Odds, visual weight and contrast, to actual and implied lines in an image, symmetry, viewpoint and abstraction - are each analysed and demonstrated with the aid of the author's own beautiful images.
