If Bryan Peterson’s book (above) is an introduction to the technical aspects of photography, The Photographer’s Eye is a guide to the creative aspects. In photography, creativity doesn’t mean forming an image straight out of your mind, but looking at the world as it is and seeing compositions that will be engaging as a two dimensional image. This book is full of lessons and tips that will help you to see the world the way a photographer sees it, and go beyond just pointing your camera at the subject. Another book by Michael Freeman that I enjoyed was The Photographer’s Mind. Though there was a little bit of overlap with The Photographer’s Eye, it’s focus is less on the fundamentals of composition and more on the creative aspects of the craft.
