Description

Product Description


Completely revised and updated throughout, Bryan Peterson''s classic guide to creativity helps photographers visualize their work, and the world, in a whole new light by developing their photographic vision.


Fully revised with all new photography, this best-selling guide takes a radical approach to creativity by explaining that it is not an inherent ability but a skill that can be learned and applied. Using inventive photos from his own stunning portfolio, author and veteran photographer Bryan Peterson deconstructs creativity for photographers. He details the basic techniques that go into not only taking a particular photo, but also provides insights on how to improve upon it--helping readers avoid the visual pitfalls and technical dead ends that can lead to dull, uninventive photographs.

This revised edition features a complete section on color as a design element and all new photographs to illustrate Peterson''s points. Learning to See Creatively is the definitive reference for any photographer looking for a fresh perspective on their work.

I was sitting down to read this book this morning after having a choice between some PTSD thoughts and I said "No, I''m going to read Learning to See Creatively. And as I stuck with it I got absorbed in seeing things creatively and with a different spin and other things I thought today took a different mood and tone. I was impressed with not only the creativity but the different ways of looking at something.

Excellent, excellent book! If for no other reason than the pictures in this book , come with all exposure data (shutter, aperture, lens etc.) and any other photographer''s should take note , before putting pen to paper! I know that Bryan Peterson wants me to learn, to muse and reflect and then go out and experiment on my own by providing as much detail as possible to mimic, expand and have that ah ha moment! THAT IS WHAT ALL TRUE MENTORS DO! They want you to have success! Maybe I''m just dense, but Bryan seems to help me with that. Some books I have read leave you scratching your head and even more confused( they seem to add more voodoo and mistery to the art) about/of picture taking. Thankyou Bryan and keep up the good work!

The book is very vague and unnecessarily long, filled with empty words that are meaningless.

Even the sample images are not visually pleasing and I would definitely not follow someone who post photos at this level on instagram or other sites, let alone paying to buy photo from them.

I’m including some sample images in this book, if you want to make ugly photos like this, buy the book. Otherwise look elsewhere.

The book is very simple read, understand and bring vet practical. Pictures shows how the author comes to the final composition and he explains along the way. It is geared more for the beginning photographer, however, I did reminded somethings that I had forgotten and I think it is helpful to me. One can finished the book in less than couple hours. But the general ideas and direction he gave is very universal and of value to improve ones pictures.

This author I am familiar with from my years when I took photos with film cameras. I find that his migration to digital has not weakened his wonderful approach at photography and using it more as an art medium than just a means of recording history. If you desire to take photos that will have folks talking about your subject than this is a must read. The author shows and reveals numerous methods and instructions for various situations to get the kind of photos that will wow those who see them. Must buy for those who want to create art in their photography.

I''m wondering if the Author''s name, is a common one! You know how some books are an easy read, like the words just seem to flow together? Well, this definitely isn''t one of those books. In fact, I''m wondering if this Photographer/Author may be one or the other, but is definitely not both! The book arrived damaged, and being that it was intended to be a Gift, I had to obtain a new one. And so I read the damaged one, and then went to donate it to the Public Library, but I was told that they already had two copies, and they hadn''t been borrowed at all yet. So it had to be donated elsewhere, and I''m hoping that someone gets some use out of it. I also hope that someone is helped by this review, because the book itself probably won''t do anyone much good at all.

Great photography book
Reviewed in the United States on November 21, 2018
The example shots in this book give you just what’s needed to “see” the principle being taught in the chapter. I wish I’d have come across this book years ago, my photography skills would be far ahead of what they are right now.

I wanted to learn more about composition and chose this book because I have read ''Understanding Exposure'', also by Bryan Peterson. I loved this book and how it has helped to expand my creative vision. Although this is not a coffee table book, I liked the glossy pictures throughout. More than that, I loved how each picture was accompanied with a story explaining how the photograph was taken and the thought processes behind it. With each photo, there is a technical reference which lists the Camera, Lens, Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. I found this really helpful as it allows you to understand the exposure settings to achieve the photograph; paired with creative eye and narrative of the author this is invaluable. Bryan guides you through the process of seeing creatively, explaining how we see and how a camera sees, Elements of Design, Composition, the Magic of Light and ending with a short chapter on photoshop. I don''t have an ''artistic'' background, so learning about colour and composition was a real eye-opener for me. I like how Bryan explains the creative science in a way that''s easy to understand; I also like how he encourages you to break the rules every now and then to get unique images. There are a handful of exercises in the book, which, if followed and practiced, will help you to improve your photography skills. I enjoyed this book and feel that my photography has improved as a result.

Loved this book. It''s amazing how the impossible and the un-interesting can be photographed and made possible and interesting. Simple things like a Rivet, can become beautiful. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it has opened up a whole world of possibilities that I would never have thought could make good photographs. It''s a real eye opener, and easy to read. The author is a little crazy, but no crazier than the rest of us photographers! I would recommend this book to anyone starting out in photography and also to us "seasoned" photographers out there. It helped wake up some of my "dormant" ideas.
