Uncover the transformative power of composition and elevate your photography Most books on photographic composition all say the same things: they talk about the rule of thirds, where to place the horizon line, repeating patterns, S curves, frames within frames--the list goes on and on. But with all these books on composition's "rules," photographers still struggle to create great shots. Why? Because composition isn't being taught the right way.Crush the Composition is different. Written by photographer and best-selling author Scott Kelby--who wrote the best-selling digital photography book of all time (The Digital Photography Book)--the book cuts through all the rules you're "supposed" to learn, and instead Scott shows you exactly how he thinks about composition and how he works through his shoots to create great shots. Presented in a large 10x10-inch format and accompanied by Scott's beautiful photographs, the book is both instructive and inspiring. Whether you shoot portraits, landscapes, sports, or weddings, your shots will dramatically improve once you "get it" and start using Scott's methods for creating effective and successful compositions.Instead of just learning "the rule of thirds," you'll learn how to work a scene, change your perspective, use layers to add depth, emphasize simplicity, and much more. Once you implement the techniques and process that Scott teaches you, you'll know the secrets behind great compositions and be able to create captivating images that will leave a lasting impression on your viewers.TABLE OF CONTENTSChapter 1: The Importance of CompositionChapter 2: Working the SceneChapter 3: Change Your PerspectiveChapter 4: Work the SharpnessChapter 5: Work the SettingsChapter 6: Using Layers to Add DepthChapter 7: SimplicityChapter 8: Clear SubjectChapter 9: Composing PortraitsChapter 10: The Importance of Becoming a Photo EditorChapter 11: The Truth about Quality of SubjectChapter 12: Compositional TipsChapter 13: Rules of CompositionChapter 14: Breaking the Rules
