Book Review: Learning To See Creatively

“In many areas of life some rules, no matter how well intended, are simply meant to be broken.” — Bryan Peterson (Learning To See Creatively)

Sharing his years of photography experience, Bryan Peterson breaks down and simplifies the art of the photo in this heavily revised Third Edition of Learning To See Creatively.

Expanding our vision, shape, form, texture, composition and light are just a few of the topics explored in this richly illustrated volume. I especially enjoyed the chapter on breaking the rules in the context of photography. For example, generally the subject of a photo is the focus but breaking this rule can create a sense of isolation that cannot be obtained in other ways. Thinking outside the box can lead to pleasantly surprising results.

I thoroughly recommend this guide to photographers at all levels of their craft. There are tips and information here that will be useful to everyone. 5 Stars.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
