This is. Of meant to be the only source for photographic criticism but merely one voice that will be a guide on the journey. David talks about lens choice, point of view, light, and moment as elements that convey the photographer's vision. Written in a very approachable style the casual photographer will easily glean a This is a book about how to critique photographs. Written in a very approachable style the casual photographer will easily glean a great deal from this book.
Conversely those that have been formally trained and more familiar with art history and the elements and principles of design may find it wanting. I for one enjoyed reading David's methodology and find it extremely useful. View all 3 comments.
Within the Frame was such a strong book that my expectations were high for this one. First, this book needed far, far better editing. Regarding one photograph he said "there's hardly a horizontal line" and two paragraphs later, he notes, "there are plenty of horizontal lines. My frustration peaked at the end. I don't have the patience to go back and quote what he Within the Frame was such a strong book that my expectations were high for this one.
I don't have the patience to go back and quote what he noted was important at the beginning, but in the conclusion he writes that whether something is an element or a decision is 'totally irrelevant. That said, I still love his photography and learned from the book. It just won't become a recommendation or a gift from me.
I learned a lot from this book about taking great photos. I will pay more attention to the aspects of a scene and how the lighting, lines, POV and balance can help or hurt what I want to say with my pictures. The author and photographer also has many amazin I learned a lot from this book about taking great photos. I would recommend to those that have an interest in the art of photography! This is a good book, but not for one who is setting out in the world of photography for the first time.
Some knowledge of photography is required to understand what he is talking about, else much of what he says will indeed fly over the reader's head. Having said that, there is good material in the book, to make a person think while taking photographs. Discussions around elements of composition, and thoughts around them are well thought through, and the exercises at the end of the chapters are go This is a good book, but not for one who is setting out in the world of photography for the first time.
Discussions around elements of composition, and thoughts around them are well thought through, and the exercises at the end of the chapters are good I like that he analyses 20 photographs at the end of the book. This is indeed interesting indeed. This is my favourite David duChemin book to date. The book explains the idea of an image using elements and decisions as a language to visually communicate with the reader aka viewer of an image.
This was a useful way of explaining the concepts, and finishing off the book with an indepth analysis of 20 of his images helped put these concepts into practice. It helped me understand some of the choices I've had available to me but haven't been consciously making.
Hopefully this will help me streng This is my favourite David duChemin book to date. Hopefully this will help me strengthen my images in future. Good job David, and it helped reinforce and extend some of the concepts from a recent Bryan Peterson book I'd read. Overall I think this book could use some serious editing. If you have read any of his previous books or follow the postings on his blog this book will seem like a repeat. He makes good points that all photographers should keep aware of and then instead of a simple example and a short sentence he goes on and on page after page repeating what he said at the beginning and often times things from a previous example.
Very tiresome and it felt like he was padding the writing so he could get a book out Overall I think this book could use some serious editing. Very tiresome and it felt like he was padding the writing so he could get a book out of it and charge more.
Sorry to be negative because I normally really like the author but this book failed to do much for me. If you've read The Photographer's Eye: Composition and Design for Better Digital Photos by Michael Freeman, you will probably not find too much more here that will improve your composition skills. If you only want to read one book on composition I'd go with Freeman's volume. If you want a general intro to photography plus some composition tips this is an ok book.
But for anyone with more working knowledge of photography this book is highly skippable. I really like this author. This book has some great ideas for how to improve your photos. He talks about having vision and feeling as guides to what you shoot. He also covers techniques that are just right for what I am interested in learning. I renewed it twice until I had to return it to the library.
I don't really like the book. I scanned and skimmed most of the time as there aren't many useful things for my improvement. Or is it because of my limited ability of understanding of what the author is trying to say? I think it's too fat for teaching you how to speak through a photography and I'm no saying that it doesn't have good points but I think I needs deeper information. Feb 24, Irene B. The images presented in this book are useful for stimulating the photographic imagination.
Good, but not great writing is compensated for by the excellent photographic sample and the fact he is writing on a topic that needed this book. A beautiful book aesthetically. Instruction was written in a way that was very useful to me as an amateur photographer. Not as good as his previous books, but still a very good read and worth perusing.
