Many of you may have read this book already but I just read it again and felt I had to make sure I get my recommendation out.

Michael Freeman's book "Photographer's Eyes" is an amazing book for the art and compositionally challenged. I first read it about 3 years ago and have read it 3 times since. I have also read all of his other books. But this one really affected me. So I wrote a short blog about it here:

http://www.bobkeenanphoto.com/book-review-michael-freemans-photographers-eye-photographers-mind/

And thought I should share this thought on this forum.

BTW I do some microstock and i got an improvement in my sales after I read this and started to implement what I had learned.

I would highly recommend any new photographers to check out his book.

    I might have to get that one. But the paperback is cheaper than the Kindle version? Odd...

    That tells me that he isn't really interested in selling digital books then. But rather than not offer it, simply prices it in such a manner that people will tend to buy paper instead.

    and I am doing just the opposite...trying to get everything I can digital, so that it is much more portable, as i plan of living a Vagabond life in the near future....:D but I still want my reading and reference material available. ne_nau.gif Oh well, doesn't look like I'll help in supporting him.
