Summary
"Creativity is not for the chosen few. This book will help any photographer see things from a new angle and avoid the visual bad habits that lead to dull, uninventive images. Author Bryan Peterson's proven teaching method is simple and highly effective. Using his own impressive photographs as examples, he discusses what makes a successful, exceptional image -- often providing useful "before" and "after" comparisons of his subjects to illustrate his points. Anyone can "see" -- but with practice, Peterson's readers will develop a real photographic vision and take better pictures. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
