This is a 10th Anniversary re mastered edition of the original book the re mastering evidently refers to digital printing I have the original version and there s no apparent difference in quality of the printing which was good in the original the content is the same I had expected an update at least in some new images or reflections so I do find the re mastering unnecessarily confusing Nevertheless, the book is excellent Michael Freeman is one of the very best authors, thoughtful, learned, academic so not a light read A great deal is presented in as accessible manner as is possible without over simplifying. If you are new to photography and have bought your first DSLR or mirrorless camera, this is the second book I d recommend afterUnderstanding Exposure, Fourth Edition How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera Once you understand exposure, then composition is the next critical lesson There is no better book imho than this one to explain the fundamentals of composition lines, colours, timing It s all there It s a tenth anniversary edition for a reason I ve read plenty of books on photography, but I find myself coming back to this one for a reason clearly written and beautifully illustrated It deserves to be on every photographer s bookshelf. I thought this book was well written and informative Compositional ideas are grouped in easy to understand or well explained headings logically and generally there are a series of pictures to explain each concept Since I have read this book, I have been thinking about my composition and I believe my photography has improved as a result.The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 The book doesn t really end, it just kind of stops You expect there to be another section, turn the page and find the index This didn t put me off the book however, I needed to concentrate on understanding the basics of photographic composition and this book has gone a long way to doing that.I would recommend buying this book, but it should be bought with a number of others, it cannot be relied upon as a reference on it s own. At first I thought I had found what I was looking for a book which was all about improving the image rather than going on about gear, Lightroom etc Certainly gear is never mentioned, and the text applies equally to smartphones, medium format and everything in between But it seems to me that some of the basics of composition are skipped over too quickly.Also, the author s forte appears to be travel photography, so that s what the examples are drawn from Don t expect much on composition for portraits, family groups, or street photography.Finally, as others have said, the book stops very suddenly, as if the printer left out the last chapter by mistake I for one would have found it useful if it had ended with a summary of key points to take away.
