A useful collection of tips and suggestions
This is a pleasing little book. It doesn't go into great long essays on photographic technique; instead, each two-page spread has a photograph, and a commentary on what makes that photo work, with suggestions for approaches that photographers might consider. Tried-and tested methods like using leading lines and the rule of thirds are covered succinctly but sufficiently.
For those who expect printed material to exhibit high standards of literacy, it is a shame that the proof-reading and checking (if there was any) of this book has fallen down in some places:
...for example, on page 14 there is a phrase which should have read...
"our eyes initially bypass the hordes occupying the van and home in on the leaping figure",
but has rather lamentably been rendered as...
"our eyes initially bypass the hoards occupying the van and hone in on the leaping figure";
...and on page 89: "[the photographer] has used a very short focal length to created [sic] a dramatic sense of space".
Never mind. It's still a useful book!
