Product description

"The Photographers Eye" has been one of the most successful books about the art of photography ever published. In it, Michael Freeman analysed the art of photographic composition the arrangement of subjects within the frame and in doing so inspired hundreds of thousands of photographers to develop their work and create more sophisticated and rewarding images. In this volume, Freeman looks at what makes a photograph great and explores the ways that top photographers achieve this goal time and time again. The first section explains how the digital revolution has democratised the photographic arts, while the second section looks at the intention behind a photo. This is followed by an analysis of style from classical harmonies to minimalist looks. Finally, he looks at how this will affect your photographic process: there's advice on avoiding cliche, creating a picture story, and shooting with post-production in mind. As ever, Michaels thinking is illustrated by his own stunning photography and explained in clear, unpretentious language with newly-commissioned diagrams illustrating the more theoretical points. "The Photographers Mind" will be one of this years major books on the subject and is set to become a well-used addition to the library of any serious photographer.

Author information

Michael Freeman, professional photographer and best-selling author, was born in England in 1945, took a Masters in Geography at Brasenose College, Oxford University, and then worked in advertising in London for six years. In 1971 he made the life-changing decision to travel up the Amazon with two secondhand cameras, and when Time-Life used many of the pictures he came back with, he embarked on a full-time photographic career. Since then, working for clients that include all the world's major magazines, most notably the Smithsonian Magazine (for which he has shot more than 40 stories over 30 years), Freeman's reputation as one of the world's leading reportage photographershas been consolidated. Of his many books, which have sold over 4 million copies worldwide, more than 60 titles are on the practice of photography. For this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture. Freeman's books on photography have been translated into 27 languages.
