Color, Light & Composition
A Photographer's GuideBook - 2010
This visually stunning book focuses on the three most important factors required to create good photographs: colour, light and composition. Today s digital cameras offer the user the opportunity to capture images that are correctly exposed and focused time after time; however, this technology is next to useless without an understanding of the processes involved in capturing an image that is pleasing to the eye as well as technically correct. This book will help enthusiasts achieve the full potential of their camera equipment and make the most of the advances in camera technology, with particular focus on: understanding the colour wheel; complementary and contrasting colours; using a limited colour palette; the direction and strength of light; the rule of thirds; using lines within an image; picture orientation; and focal lengths and depth of field.
