Synopsis

Completely re-written and expanded.

This version of Simplifying Composition is a distillation of all of Bruce's workshop teachings on composition in an up to date volume.

In this updated and revised edition, Bruce's aim is to heightening of your awareness as to why certain compositions work. The book is split into three sections:

  1. Flow - Learn how the eye should naturally flow through a scene and utilise this knowledge in your compositions.
  2. Compositional Devices - strengthening your compositions by using shapes and patterns that help lead the eye through the frame. 
  3. Fieldwork - working practices whilst out in the field to help you find and fine-tune your compositions.

Please see bottom of page for the full table of contents.
