The Compelling Photograph – Techniques for Creating Better Images Book 2

Back in April of this year Anne McKinnell released her first book of this series aptly named The Compelling Photograph – Techniques for Creating Better Images – Book 1. You can see my review of Book 1 here. Since the release of book 1 Anne has continued on with her adventures, exploring North America and creating spectacular imagery. She also introduced and launched One-on-One Photography Coaching sessions which sell out…quickly and her ebooks can usually be found ranked in 1st place on Amazon.

Book 2 follows the same format as the first, where each chapter is structured as a lesson on a particular topic. There are 8 chapters  (or lessons) each focused on a different design element. McKinnell, always the teacher, takes great care in explaining how to achieve the design element and what makes for a successful image. This ebook isn’t just about sitting and reading. At the end of each chapter there’s an assignment to help you put into practice what you’ve just read.

Book 2 covers the following:

  • Patterns
  • Symmetry
  • Leading Lines
  • Curves
  • Shapes
  • Depth of Field
  • Long Exposure
  • Minimalism

If you’re just starting out in photography or want a refresher on the basics then this should be in your library.
