This new eBook follows the same graphic approach as our popular Finding Visual Expression eBook. Each section begins with a brief summary of the topical area, which is then followed by a selection of photographs that illustrate the use of that approach.
Fifteen new subject areas are included in Finding Visual Expression II. These include: Mechanical Marvels, Corner Anchors, Equidistant Composition, Rule of Thirds, Compression, Leading Lines, Reveals, Colour & Contrast, Corner Exits, Incorporating Roads, Magic of 7, Dominating Elements, Foreground Elements, Overlapping Elements, and Living Character.
Finding Visual Expression II may provide some visual inspiration for readers, regardless of the camera gear that they may own.
Folks who use a Smartphone for their photography may also find Finding Visual Expression II of interest.
From time to time almost all of us can benefit from moments of inspiration, or be reminded of some fundamental photographic approaches that we can use when we are out with our cameras.
Finding Visual Expression II is a non-technical photography related eBook. You won’t find long explanations of technique and camera settings, or any detailed EXIF data.
This was done to reinforce the idea that photographic creativity can emerge with whatever image creating tool a photographer may be holding in their hands.
At times we may find ourselves fixating on the brand and model of camera that we may own, and the size of the sensor inside it.
These factors are not nearly as important to creating a successful image as is finding personal inspiration and creativity when composing a photograph.
Finding Visual Expression II showcases a range of images to reinforce each of the fifteen topical areas.
This allows readers to more fully experience a concept by seeing how it can be applied in a number of different situations.
A number of the concepts covered in Finding Visual Expression II are often used with landscape photography.
As a result, folks who enjoy landscape photography may find the content in Finding Visual Expression II of particular interest.
Many of the concepts covered in Finding Visual Expression II can be used with a wide range of other subject matter. These topical segments are not mutually exclusive.
Many of the sample images could represent more than a single approach. For example an image may illustrate a corner exit as well as a leading line.
The objective of this eBook is very simple. To encourage photographers to experience the world around them with a renewed sense of wonder… as would a child.
Sometimes all we need as photographers is a bit of inspiration. We hope you can find some of that inside Finding Visual Expression II.
