CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The source of any photograph is not the camera or even the scene viewed
through the viewfinder-it is the mind of the photographer: this is where an
image is created before it is committed to a memory card or film. In The
Photographer's Mind , the follow-up to the international best-seller, The
Photographer's Eye , photographer and author Michael Freeman unravels the
mystery behind the creation of a photograph.
The nature of photography demands that the viewer constantly be intrigued and
surprised by new imagery and different interpretations, more so than in any
other art form. The aim of this book is to answer what makes a photograph
great, and to explore the ways that top photographers achieve this goal time
and time again.
As you delve deeper into this subject, 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.
