Learn to "see" more compelling images with this on-the-go field guide from Bryan Peterson! 
What makes an image amazing? Believe it or not, it is not about the content. What makes a photo compelling is the arrangement of that content--in other words, its composition. The right composition gives your images impact and emotion; the wrong one leaves them flat. In this handy, take-anywhere guide, renowned photographer, instructor, and bestselling author Bryan Peterson frees amateur photographers from the prejudices of what is "beautiful" or "ugly" so that they can instead focus on color, line, light, and pattern. Get the tools you need to show your distinct voice and point of view in every image you shoot. With this guide in your camera bag, you'll be equipped not only to "see" beautiful images but to successfully shoot them each and every time.

I love this book. It's exactly what I was looking for - ways to take better photographs. This guy knows his stuff. How lucky we are to have this gifted photographer pass down his pearls of wisdom. If I could afford to buy it I would.
