About This Book

Now that you’ve bought that amazing new DSLR, you need a book that goes beyond the camera manual to teach you how to take those great shots. One key element is composition—the creative arrangement of components in the shot, and the way a viewer’s eye travels through an image.With Composition: 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. 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. Beautifully illustrated with large, vibrant photos, this book teaches you how to take control of your photography to get the image you want every time you pick up the camera.Follow along with your friendly and knowledgeable guides, and you will learn about:

  • Key camera features that affect composition, including the exposure triangle (ISO, aperture, and shutter speed)
  • Shadow and light and how to direct the viewer’s eye to your subject
  • Lines and shapes that create visual paths to points of interest in your image
  • The role of color—using complementary or contrasting colors—to add your own unique artistic expression
  • Spatial relationship and placing your subject within the frame for portraits, action shots, or landscapes


And once you’ve got the shot, show it off! Join the book’s Flickr group, share your photos, and discuss how you use your camera to get great shots at flickr.com/groups/composition_fromsnapshotstogreatshots.
