The Visual Flow Companion

The first book that I ever read by Ian Plant was Visual Flow: Mastering the Art of Composition.  That was the start of a beautiful friendship between myself and Mr. Plant…in print anyway 🙂 That monster 287 page ebook has become my go to reference book when I’m conceptualizing what images I want to shoot and how. You can read the review of Visual Flow here.

You’ll understand my excitement then when I found out that Ian Plant has just released The Visual Flow Companion as a compliment and update to the first book.  Overflowing with new images, new ideas and insights and new image analyses I was ready to dig in.

Each image in this 51 page volume is brilliant and Ian goes through a thorough analysis of the compositional values of each and the techniques he employed. In addition to his own images Ian goes through the same in-depth compositional analysis of images of fellow Dreamscapes bloggers, George Stocking, Kurt Budlinger, and Richard Bernabe.

As with the first book this companion piece, albeit not as hefty in page count, is packed with indispensable information and insight for photographers at any level.

The Visual Flow Companion retails for $7.95 which is a great deal in itself but for the month of December you can get 15% OFF  just use the discount code DECEMBER at check-out! For more information, please visit the Dreamscapes Store.

  6. He’s an amazing photographer & author! I first got familiar with his photography through the Outdoor Photographer magazine! Another great photog and author is Richard Bernabe, also on OP.
