Ian Plant just released his new eBook: Visual Flow: Mastering the Art of Composition. This is the next eBook in a series Ian has written and photographed for the last several years. Teaming up with fellow photographer; George Stocking (Arizona Highways), this book is quite in-depth and lengthy for an eBook at 128 pages, which of course is good.
It’s loaded information, thoughts on creativity, and great quotes. My favorite: “You are remembered for the rules you break.”- Douglas MacArthur.
When learning photography, most aspiring students learn about the rules of composition and all their offshoot descriptions before learning there are no rules. What Ian does in Visual Flow is discuss these rules before quickly moving on to what seems more important: The Tools for Composition.
“Composition is much more than just visual structure. It is how you tell your subject’s story to your viewers…..” – Ian Plant
The book contains wonderful photography from known and unknown locations in North America and beyond. I have a copy and I can recommend this one to you.
