Which photography book is best for me?
First of all, we at Light and Composition want to thank you for showing interest in buying our books. You might wonder, “Why buy your books?” You are not the first one to ask this question. We get this sort of question asked by many people every day.
The answer to this question depends on you, because every individual is at a different level of understanding of photography. Let’s say, when you start reading the book, The Quintessence of Photography: Understanding Composition, it will first guide you through the fundamentals of photography.
Then reading further, you will analyze the standard of photography, as well as learn how you can deal with elements of composition. As this book is vast and covers almost every aspect of photography which a person must know in order to become a good photographer, it will guide you step by step.
However, if you want to learn how to handle your camera and want to know some basics, like depth of field, metering, and using the zone system, then the best book for you is The Essence of Close-up Photography, as close-up photography requires more in-depth understanding of the technical side, and once you have this knowledge, then you can truly utilize the advanced technical discussion in the section “Art & Science” in the book The Quintessence of Photography.
In a nutshell, if you want to master the knowledge of the field of photography, you are better to buy two of these books in our special visualization and composition bundle, “Mastering Photography”.
If you a nature photographer, or would like to start nature photography, then you need to get the “Hello Explorer” bundle. Then again, if you want to buy a single book, we suggest you to visit the page – “Find the Book that’s Right for You” and get the book which you need most.
Should I order a photographic bundle or a separate photography book?
If you buy a bundle, you are getting a discount over purchasing the book separately. However many people first want to know how much they can learn from these books, so they only order a single book. Among those people ordering a single book, 95% of them come back to our store within 2 hours and get all our books. So, the choice is in your hands, and our suggestion is, please read about each of our books individually from “Explore Our Books”, and visit “Find the Book that’s Right for You” . Hope that will help you in choosing the right book for you.
I am new to photography. Can I benefit from these books?
Yes, definitely! You can benefit more than anyone else from these books. Do you know why? Because, in order to make a perfect composition, one needs skill with proper technical understanding and knowledge of composition, and for that our books will be your perfect guide. They will give you technical understanding first and then more to its core, the essence and art of it. However, just remember, understanding is far different than memorizing. You understand a concept when you can apply it, and through that, you can add a creative touch and make it artistic. Our books will not only help develop your artistic skills but also, they will help to hone your technical understanding.
