By Henry Carroll  (Non-Fiction)

ISBN 9781780673356

This book is an inspiration for those of us who would rather not have graphs, techie diagrams and jargon.  Instead it inspires through hands-on tips and iconic images by master photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bill Brandt and Ansel Adams.  There are some stunning pictures and tips to achieve similar images using the trio – aperture, shutter speed and ISO.

Henry Carroll gives basic tips which make for easy understanding of compositional concepts – leading lines and framing, rule of thirds and depth of field – developing your photographer’s eye.

This is a perfect book for beginners as explanations are given in a simple and easily memorable way – options are suggested and encouragement given to try them.  As the title suggests, it’s a great little book for mastering the basics and then encourages you to go and practice.
