Book publisher Rocky Nook has released The Photograph: Composition and Color Design by Harald Mante. The new book is geared toward the serious intermediate and advanced photographer who strives to create outstanding images.
In The Photograph, Mante explains the elements that are essential to achieving the highest level of visual design in photographs. The author explores the principles of line, shape, color, contrast, composition, and design in significantly greater depth and at a higher level than most any book available to date. He also covers a number of techniques to enhance expressiveness in a photograph to support the photographerâ€™s intentions.
The lessons in the book are illustrated with more than 600 images from Manteâ€™s own portfolio, plus over 160 diagrams. It is available now for $50.
