The Photographers Eye: A graphic Guide

Michael Freeman
Authors:
Michael Freeman

Taking a new look at composition, the theme of his bestselling classic The Photographer's Eye, Michael Freeman now explores the visual mechanics of photography in its own native terms. Lushly illustrated with straight-to-the-point diagrams and graphic deconstructions, this new, digitally remastered edition speaks in that intuitive, visual, and instantaneous language in which photographers think and work.Each section is organized into discrete units that articulate a working method for communicating particular ideas and capturing certain subjects. Dive into beautiful images and explore how each compositional element is placed and arranged in relationship to each other. Examine the outtakes from each shoot to understand why one particular image succeeded, compared to those shot before and after. Track the viewer's eye as it moves throughout the photo to see the optical dynamics held within each frame. And most of all, internalize this graphic language so you can instantly recognise amazing and powerful shots as they appear in your own viewfinder.

Capturing the Moment

Michael Freeman
Authors:
Michael Freeman

One of photography's true greats, Henri Cartier-Bresson, nailed photography perfectly when he coined the phrase 'the decisive moment'. So perfectly, in fact, that it has foiled all attempts to escape the single, crucial idea of what photography, and photography alone, can do. Capturing the Moment deals with the unique power of photography to capture slices of time and life. What it is not is a book about shutter speed. It is about gesture, expression, things just touching and others about to happen a kiss, a ball in the net, an expression of delight, a glass about to shatter in pieces on the floor. Moment in all its forms is the true core of photography, and Michael Freeman will explain how to anticipate it, recognise it, choose it, and so capture it.
