    Composing The Photo: Creating Order From the Chaos

    Composing The Photo: Creating Order From the Chaos by Trey Ratcliff
    Publisher: N/A | English | 2010 | ISBN: N/A | 55 pages | PDF | 42.5 MB

    Want to learn some of the secrets of how to compose great photos time and time again? In this book, Trey Ratcliff, of the famous HDR photography blog Stuck In Customs, shows you his method for setting up your shot for great composition as well as using the crop tool in post processing to make your current and future images even more interesting and beautiful to the viewer.


    - A detailed how-to about composing photos
    - Countless examples of the how/when/why of setting up a shot on the scene
    - Postprocessing: the how/when/why to crop your image for more meaning and power
    - Deep discussions on how viewers react to different compositions
    - There is an equal emphasis on composing landscapes and composing people
    - Bonus Edition: Many extra examples of people/object photography, how to choose the best photo from a “Spray and Pray”, and more sample Golden Ratio croppings.


    “This book is a really great departure from the wonderful HDR eBook/DVD series that Trey has created. The contents of this eBook are thoughtfully laid out and touch on some visual concepts that really got me thinking about how I compose my images (I was especially keen on reading about the Golden Ratio). Trey breaks the mold here and offers the book in a landscape perspective, which I really enjoyed. The text and images look fantastic when read on the iPad, too. You won’t go wrong picking this up for yourself. Every page is solid.”

    – Brian Matiash

    “Okay, I’ve read about composition and studied examples before, but this was outstanding. Reading the book, I was immediately able to identify some past mistakes with photos that didn’t quite feel right, and returned to them and recrop them into far improved compositions. I wasn’t bad at composition previously, but my successes were all often done by feel and ‘rule of thirds’, and all too often, RoT just wasn’t feeling right for pictures – in the future, I’ll be using your far superior points to make sure I get the shots I want.”
