Learning To See Creatively is all about learning to see design, colour and composition in photography.

Author Bryan Peterson wants you to learn how to 'see' properly, paying more attention to the everyday things around you and thinking how they can be made into a great image.

The book begins by looking at how we see, and comparing human vision to camera vision. It explains how different focal lengths can shed a completely different view onto a scene and how you can change your angle to create a completely different looking image. An example is given of a small puddle in the road. When you crouch down and put the puddle in the foreground it resembles a much larger puddle.

Elements of design are then looked at, specifically what makes a striking image and what elements should be incorporated to make the image look pleasing to the human eye.

Composition and the layout of an image is also covered along with using light creatively and a brief chapter on Photoshop and post processing your images.

The book includes lots of great creative images, made from things you may not have thought to look at closely before. Bryan is really good at explaining how and why he took an image and camera settings are included for each one, helping you to understand how the image was taken.

If you are struggling for inspiration or want some help in seeing the world in a different light, then this book can really open your eyes. Every type of lens is covered so no matter what camera and lens combination you have, you should be able to find a new way to use it.
