In an age when content and speed appear to be the preoccupation of a world oversaturated with photographic imagery, this book aims to guide students and learners through a comprehensive range of design principles that add dynamism, longevity and impact to their photography, whatever the style or genre – something that today’s editors, curators and publishers are all crying out for.
Design principles are not a dry list of improvement techniques or artistic dos and don’ts. This book takes readers through the basic elements of design – line, shape, color, space, texture and light – and shows how design awareness through the application of these concepts can add rhythm, movement, contrast and a new level of depth and dimension to your images.
