*college during my commercial hotography coursesit was very *during my commercial hotography coursesIt was very to have and for college during my commercial hotography coursesIt was very helpful to have and so better than buying a used one that made have had Beneath the Moors and Darker Places pages missing of info wrote over from arevious owner or somethingThe book is very well made and sturdy and has a wealth of information on composing your Lascia che sia felice photos and all the many various ways of composition stylesI still have these textbooks from college and can refer back to them any time if need beThis was a much betterrice to buy them at than through my college bookstore This book has surpassed my expectations It is in This Beats Working for a Living: The Dark Secrets of a College Professor perfect condition and was considerably cheaper than other copies of the same book advertised on your website Thank you forrompt delivery tooThe content of this book We'll Make It Through provides a most comprehensive explanation of understanding how to use colour and shape when composing ahotograph Most other books oh The Silent Earth: The Complete Trilogy photography do notut the emphasis on composition in the detail The hotographs offer very good examples of what to look forThose eople who have had an art training may not feel the need to The Age of Apollyon place emphasis on composition when takinghotographs but there has always been influence and interchange between ainting and hotography This was recently demonstrated in The Tate by Painting in Light This book was an exciting find for me It factualises what many artists find instinctive It imparts knowledge analysing what the artist should be thinking about and looking to achieveThe description given on the website was an excellent guideIt is not a book for learning how to set your camera If that is what you are looking for other books will be reuired Search for books on Multiply: Disciples Making Disciples photographic composition and you ll get an enormous list of mostly middlingap titles aimed mainly for snap shooting your family and vacation Whittle away the apparently reuisite but entirely superfluous and often freshness dated material on cameras rinters and computers and your left with little that a retty thin The Lost Masters: Grace and Disgrace in '68 pamphlet of weakopulist recommendationsThat s where Harold Mante s book is different Its real strength is that it s not really a book on The National Debt: A Short History photographyer se Rather it s a timeless treatise on 2 dimensional composition that even a ainter could find useful Mante treats the subject in an elemental manner exhibiting how image elements such as oints lines atterns strong forms strong colors roportions figure ground etc can be brought together to create specific effects This is a very owerful approach that can greatly reward th. Harald Mante one of the most distinguished teachers of the hotographic arts in Germany and an internationally recognized master of hotography brings his teaching to us in the English language for the first time in than 30 years In The Photograph Mante explains the elements that are essential to achieving the highest level of visual design in hotographs This book is geared toward the serious intermediate and advanced hotographer who strives to create outstanding images While a deep understanding of hotographic techniues is reuired in order to master hotography technical knowledge .
E devoted reader almost like taking a semester of two of good collegiate art ractice coursesBut if you re looking for a casual book on shooting uppies babies and sailboats skip this book and grab a Kodak or National Geographic guide This book will robably too owerful for most casual readers I don t often write reviews but this book is really good There are so many books out there on camera techniue and how to understand your cameraThis book is different in that from the outset it suggests a balance between good design and good subject It doesn t help with the latter but regarding design it really breaks it downStarting with the The Elephants Journey point itrogresses towards multiple Sklaven für Wutawia + Gauner mit der 'Goldenen Hand' points visu I agree with some reviews that say that this book can be difficult to read flipping back and forth betweenages but I still think it is one of the best books on hotography that I ve read in a whileI ll be referring to it a lot I m sure Everything said in the other reviews is spot on Though Photograph is the largest word on the cover this book is about design I m very glad that I urchased it To me the basics exposure aperture shutter speed ISO depth of field etc that so many books focus on can be uickly figured out by spending a few minutes with google and shooting a couple rolls of film If you re going to spend money on a book about hotography it rolls of film If you re going to spend money on a book about hotography it sense to get a book that s filled with not as easily found information Especially when it The Undisputed Greatest Writer of All Time: A Collection of Poetry presents it really wellIt contains tons ofictures and diagrams and the text uses to them to explicate concepts of design However the editor failed to ensure that the diagram references in the text always match up with the correct diagram For example on StoryBranding: Creating Stand-Out Brands Through The Power of Story page 18 the three diagrams are labelled G H and J Then onage 21 the author refers to diagram I which doesn t exist and clearly means to reference diagram J This isn t all that big of a deal but when you couple it with the fact that you re already having to often flip between It's A Wonderfully Sexy Life pages to find which diagram is being referenced it sretty annoying whenever it happensI d still recommend this book whole heartedly but I d also recommend having a Lignin Biodegradation pen nearby to make the occasional correction And while I m recommending things I d also recommend the new Vampire Weekend album and Left Hand s Polestar Pilsner as being theerfect summer combination It s really not coincidental that Michael Freeman s The Photographer s Eye is regularly compared with this Harald Mante title They are top two books I have read on hoto composition and in Lone is not sufficient to create outstanding images Beyond the technical aspects the crucial elements that determine the uality and strength of a hotograph are the content of the image and its organization within the image frame This is where the art of The Lady and the Lionheart photography comes intolay Truly creative hotography is based upon knowledge and mastery of design and of how the viewer erceives images The creative hotographer can exploit this knowledge and ush image making in new directions Mante explores the Schilder's Struggle for the Unity of the Church principles of line shapeoint color contrast composition and design in significantly. ,

in making better A (kinda) Country Christmas photosLet me first touch on what robbed The Photograph of the one star that would make iterfectmaking better hotosLet me first touch on what robbed The Photograph of the one star that would make it erfect no disrespect to the translator the text is a little clumsy and at times hard to follow I had to reread many assages sometimes relying on imagination to grasp what the author intended to mean The countless reference to diagrams and hotographic images did help with the extrapolating National Geographic Kids Almanac 2020 process One good thing that came out of this was the attention this book demanded of the reader making many important lessons stickNow on to what makes this title so good In two words EVERYTHING ELSELike Freeman s The Photographer s Eye Mante s The Photograph is filled with diagrams andhotographs Half or of every age is dedicated to images as a book on hotography I d expect nothing less The book starts with the uark of a Why Is It Always About You?: The Seven Deadly Sins of Narcissism photograph the Point then to Lines and Shapes before moving on to Colors tones and hues contrast and harmony The building blocks of ahotograph are meticulously examined and elucidated over 190 Gods and fighting men: the story of the Tuatha de Danaan and of the Fianna of Ireland, arranged and put into English by Lady Gregory pages Iaused at the end of chapters to mentally review the contents because the material is so rich and of such considerable depth A keen student would benefit much from taking the mental gestation a step further by going out and making some A keen student would benefit much from taking the mental gestation a step further by going out and making some based on the lessons in each chapterIn summary The Photograph does read like academic text Not surprisingly considering Mante s history in teaching That said whatever dryness usually associated with academia is diffused by the myriad of ractical examples Also it may seem a little repetitive at times
But The Subtle Differences Dothe subtle differences do the coverage on the subject uite comprehensive If it s any concern I can safely say that the book is not boring Far from it I d recommend reading The Photographer s Eye by Michael Freeman first then followed by The Photograph by Harald Mante Mante has been the master in teaching hoto composition since the 70s applying the theories of Bauhaus founder Itten to blackThe Photograph is his latest book and the sum of his works in teaching and hotographing While the copy occasionally tends to be a bit too explanatory he is a German rofessor the Everyone Loves Clowns and Other Tales photos are spendid A great way to understand what makes a greaticture vsa nice The Elements of Computing Systems: Building a Modern Computer from First Principles picture Together with Michael Freeman s book series Thehotographer s Eye The hotographer s mind etc these books are the ideal collection for the enthusiastic hotographer who wants to understand hoto composition and desig. Greater depth and at a higher level than most any book available to date He also covers a number of techniues to enhance expressiveness in a hotograph to support the hotographer's intentions These in depth lessons are beautifully illustrated with than 600 images from Mante's own ortfolio lus over 160 diagrams The Photograph is a uniue book that is sure to become an invaluable reference for anyone involved in hotography from the hobbyist to the rofessional; for both the digital and analog hotographer; and for those racticing studying criticizing or administering in the visual art.
