Learning To See Creatively – Design, Colour & Composition in Photography by Bryan Peterso

Indeed seeing things creatively is a gift, but not many possess it. Once could be great at certain techniques but not composition. That brings us to the point that creativity can be learnt too, thanks to Bryan Peterso. In his book, Peterson goes beyond the rule of thirds and discusses alternative “rules” of composition. In addition to the “rules”, he also explains when it is fine to break them. He goes into lines, shapes, forms, framing within frames, using colour, patterns, diagonals and all of that to create stunning images. It is also quite known that Stock photographers consider this book as their Bible!

It’s one of the most crucial things to know if you plan to shoot portraits or product photography. It helps make the learning exciting and they also provide examples that are fun to re-create.
