Beyond Thirds – A New Craft & Vision eBook by Andrew S. Gibson

Rules are made to be broken and in Andrew S. Gibson’s latest Craft & Vision ebook he gives you permission to do just that. Beyond Thirds – A Photographer’s Introduction to Creative Composition is an easy read with practical information and tips on how to get the most out of your images. Whether you’re a novice, looking to improve the composition of your photographs or an experienced photographer this ebook covers the basics and beyond. While Gibson starts out outlining what the rule of thirds is all about he quickly moves beyond that and explains how to take a holistic approach to composition.

By discussing how to take into consideration all visual elements within a frame he quickly has the reader looking through his own viewfinder. For some photographers composing a scene is intuitive (or eventually becomes intuitive) Beyond Thirds helps you “see” the process that Gibson takes by breaking down each image in the ebook into the compositional elements that make it so pleasing to the eye.

The ebook explores important subjects like the creative use of balance and focal points, insights into how to shape a subject, and using aspect ratio to establish an ideal foundation for making photographs, and so much more!

Gibson also includes creative exercises which provides the reader with  ideas and insights needed to compose more engaging photographs.

  3. Cool Edith! I always agreed that some of those rules – well most of them, are meant to be broken…
