Michael Freeman: The Photographer's Eye

Great photography book by Michael Freeman. Subtitle should say “Composition and Design for Better Digital Photos.”

I am using this post to jot down some mental notes from reading the book that will help me remember some of the techniques I can use when making compositions.

  • Balance
  • Frames within Frames
  • Horizon – more sky or landscape
  • Fill Frame
  • Movement/Direction
  • Vectors
  • Contrast – Hard or Soft
  • Dynamic Tension – like two people facing away from each other
  • Vertical Lines
  • Diagonal Lines
  • Curves
  • Eyes, Eye Lines – Where are the eyes looking
  • Circles
  • Triangles
  • Focus – Use limited Depth of Field
  • Diffuse (low contrast) or Concentrate (high contrast) for Attention
  • High Key or Low Key
  • Clear or Ambiguous subject
  • Simple or Complex composition
  • Colour
  • Colour Relationships

I can highly recommend this book to anyone interested in photography. Get it here on Amazon. ❗
