The Photographer's Mind Remastered: Creative Thinking for Better Digital Photos (The Photographer's Eye Book 8) (English Edition) [固定版式] Kindle电子书
You've done your research. You've bought your camera. You've learnt how to use it. Now what?
The secret behind a good photograph is not your camera. It's not even the scene viewed through the viewfinder. It's the mind of the photographer which turns an average photograph into an exceptional one.
In The Photographer's Mind, professional photographer and author Michael Freeman unravels the mystery behind the creation of a photograph and reveals how to capture photos that really make you feel something.
The aim of this book is to answer what makes a photograph great, and explore the ways that top photographers achieve this goal time and time again.
The Photographer's Mind will provide you with invaluable knowledge on:
· Avoiding cliché
· The recurring nature of trends
· Style and composition
· Capturing light
· How to handle the unexpected

"In this volume, Freeman contemplates what makes a photo gripping, appealing, or beautiful, breaking subject matter, lighting, and composition into component parts and defining and discussing each. Filled with examples at each step, the elements of a photo are organized into three sections - intent, style, and process - with examples of the transformations possible using digital technology surveyed in the final section. This is a superb guide, thought provoking and useful for photographers at all levels."--SciTechBookNews
"In Freeman's follow-up to his popular Photographer's Eye and Photographer's Eye Field Guide, he generously shares experience he has gained as a professional photographer to improve the quality of the digital pictures nearly everyone is now creating. The content is streamlined into three chapters, on intent, style, and process, that tackle both the practical and the intangible aspects of photography more thoughtfully than many similar books. Freeman is as adept at explaining composition as he is at discussing the problem of cliché or the philosophy of the sublime. Suitable for all who are serious about improving their photos."--Library Journal
"The Photographer's Mind is Michael Freeman's follow up to his best-selling book, The Photographer's Eye. Containing more than 400 images with schematic illustrations showing how and why they work, the book is targeted at serious amateurs, intermediate as well as professional photographers."--Photography Blog
"Freeman's latest offering reaffirms his place as a skilled photographer and deep thinker with much to impart about the variety of mental processes at play when viewing an image."--DPReview.com--此文字指其他 kindle_edition 版本。

This book is for the beginner and expert alike. However, it does assume a level of competence with a camera. You don't have to be an expert, you just need to know how to make your camera do what you want. So if you are looking for a book that tells you what to do then look elsewhere. This books are about thinking and in particular teaches you what to think about for advanced composition and creative thinking.
People often get too wrapped around the axel about gear. If only they had a faster camera or more mega pixels or higher ISO, then they would be taking masterpieces. That could not be further from the truth. The cold hard truth is the best and fastest way to take better pictures is to one, take lots of pictures. A way to supercharge your learning in that process is to look at and study beautiful art and pictures. This book not only shows you amazing photos, it also analyzes the photos and explains why they are amazing photos and what he was thinking.
I recommend all 3 of these books as masterpieces you will treasure and will, with practice, accelerate your learning process for taking great pictures.
Mind, though it falters slightly near the end, for the most part maintains the same high level of quality as Eye in discussing "intent" and "style." Especially interesting is the section on beauty and the sublime ("Dead Monsters"), which dips into classical aesthetic theory going back to Burke, Kant, and Addison. In a book geared for the practitioner, such theorizing can easily go too far, but that is not the case here. In fact I could have done with a bit more classical theory. Even if one chooses to eschew classical principles, I believe it is better to do so knowledgeably than ignorantly. The cataloguing of styles is helpful. I found that I already use a number of styles in my photography, but I can now do so with greater awareness and confidence. I appreciated the web links throughout the book and the references to various photographers whose styles are discussed.
I can highly recommend both books to amateur and advanced amateur photographers.
