The Art of Seeing Photographically

A 101 page book to help you learn to see photographically. Take control of your gear and create more impactful imagery.

Whether you photograph landscapes, still-life, people, or anything in between, the goal of this book is to help you put more intent in your photography. Each section is filled with examples drawn from my own collection as well as assignments to give you a little push to go out with your camera and practice a new technique or learn to see in a new way.

It never hurts to go back to basics, no matter how long you’ve been a photographer or what the degree of expertise you think you have.
