Photographic Composition Visualized offers a unique take on this fundamental issue by offering instruction in a visual format - the book is laid out in a unique spread format of a beautiful image on one page, with an in-depth break down of why the rule of composition works in the image, but also how a photographer can apply it to their own photography. Inspirational, instructive, and, most importantly, visually stunning and beautiful, photography master Richard Zakia teaches the lessons he has learned from over 40 years as a photographer. This is the book every photographer needs to own in order to create the outstanding images they always wanted to - but didn't know how. *Learn the rules of photographic composition direct from a master photographer *Unique format SHOWS the reader specific rules of composition with inspirational images and then TELLS them exactly how to apply it to their own photography *Covers the full range of compositional considerations, from pre-capture to post-processing."@en ;
