Tina Godby rated it it was amazing Dec 30, It’s definitely a good one for the person who is past the beginner stage in photography, and working in the intermediate stage. A good book to introduce you to the reflex camera world. It is actually the description of another book in this series on black and white photography. From Snapshots to Great Shots, author and photographer Laurie Excell starts with the basics of composition and explores how the elements of color, shape, angles, and contrast work to create compelling images.

In the process, she covers all key camera features that affect composition regardless of what type of DSLR you haveincluding the ability to freeze and convey motion depending on what shutter speed you choose, exfell the correlation between aperture and depth of field.

Apr 21, Aubree rated it really liked it. It deals in part about what lens to use, based on what type of scene you eccell photographing, how much of a scene you are trying to capture, etc. This is a great book to teach photography.

Publishers of technology books, eBooks, and videos for creative people.

As a beginning photographer, however this would have provided great insight on how to truly take my lauroe and make them better. Very good book for those beginning to study composition on a more serious level. Nonetheless, I learned a lot and will read it again sometime in the future when I have more experience and a deeper understanding of photography.

Excell Published Apr 22, by Peachpit Press. Excel rated it liked it Apr 13, I would say that this is a good book for Beginner and Intermediate photographers, but if you are fairly experienced and want something on artistic development look elsewhere.

If you’re looking for basic instruction in photography, the first four chapters can be useful. Not a bad book on composition. Add To My Wish List. They are alluded to, but we’re never really told what they are. composituon

Bob Vaccaro rated it it was amazing Sep 01, I feel for something which claims to focus on composition, it spends too much time talking about large amounts of expensive photography equipment.

Laurie S. Excell

While ISO, aperture, depth of field, etc have a part to play in photography, the author spends a lot of time on these subjects and not very much dealing with lines, form, color, texture, point of view, and other elements of true composition. It was the perfect level compositkon me, not so beginning that it explained what every rxcell word meant, but not too advanced. Contributing photographers, John Batdorff, David Brommer, Rick Rickman, and Steve Simon, provide unique perspectives on black and white, sports, art history, and other subjects related to composition.
