Going beyond the rule of thirds, this offers invaluable tips and tools to help the photographer take control of the creative process with emphasis on four elements: an impactful subject, dynamic composition, effective use of lighting, and an ability to invoke an emotional response in the viewer.

Flicking through the pages of popular photography magazines you might get the impression that there’s only one rule of importance—the rule of thirds. Indeed it appears that some will judge the merit of a photograph-based almost solely on this. Rarely do you hear discussion about visual weight, balance, negative space, depth, and so on? Author and professional photographer Richard Garvey-Williams argues that success lies in a combination of four elements: an impactful subject; dynamic composition; effective use of lighting; and, perhaps the most crucial, ability to invoke an emotional response in the viewer. Citing examples gleaned from a study—the Ancient Greeks’ Golden Rule; Fibonacci’s mathematical ratio; and the principles are known as the Gestalt theory—the author analyzes the concepts, rules, and guidelines that define successful composition in photography and offers practical guidance to achieving great results. In clear, concise, and jargon-free text he also considers the role of tone and color in good composition and offers invaluable tips and the tools to help the photographer take control of the creative process.
