The Photographer’s Mind The Photographer’s Mind

The source of any photograph is not the camera, or even the scene viewed through the viewfinder - it is in the mind of the photographer. In The Photographer's Mind, photographer and author Michael Freeman unravels the mystery behind the creation of a photograph. More than any other art form, the nature of photography demands that the viewer constantly be intrigued and surprised by new imagery and different interpretations. The aim of this book is to answer what makes a photograph great, and explore the ways that top photographers achieve this goal time and time again. The Photographer's Mind will provide you with invaluable knowledge on avoiding cliché, the cyclical nature of fashion, style and mannerism, light and even how to handle the unexpected.
