About the Author
Photographer Jay Maisel’s career spans 61 years. His name has become synonymous with vibrant color photography that uses light and gesture to create countless unforgettable images for advertising, editorial, and corporate communications. In addition, his pictures appear in books and private, corporate, and museum collections. Some of his commercial accomplishments include five Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covers, the first two covers of New York magazine, and the cover of Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue. Included among his many awards for excellence are the Art Directors Club Hall of Fame, American Society of Media Photographers’ Photographer of the Year Award, and the International Center of Photography’s Infinity Award.
Since he stopped taking on commercial work in the late 1990s, Jay has continued to focus on his personal work. A graduate of Cooper Union and Yale University, he continues his education by teaching younger photographers at workshops, seminars, and lectures around the world, and has developed a reputation as a giving and inspiring teacher.

Incidentally, I saved a little money on my book purchase by buying the Kindle version (not the paperback) and having it downloaded to the Kindle app on my iPad. Super viewing!!
Look for the unexpected everywhere you go.
Save the $ and look elsewhere as this is neither a high quality coffee table book nor an extensive tutelage in photography. It falls short on both counts.
That said there is still something endearing about the author's style and you do get a sense for his passion of photography in his musings.
It is about the F stop,but what h teaches us, is not to get seduced by the technical stuff and to discover the magic again..
A very good read...
A good book to return to..

Not very descriptive on composition... But it's rare any of these books are.
