5.0 out of 5 stars The Minimalist Photographer, September 3, 2013
This review is from: The Minimalist Photographer (Paperback)
The Minimalist Photographer is a book that challenges the photographer to seek an honest self assessment about their work and where they would like to go with it in the future. Minimalist photography is about learning to see. It's about less is more. Minimalist photography can tell a story with composition, textures, colors, lines, shapes and patterns. Developing the ability to see an image and then record it using the camera comes with taking images. How one composes the image and how the elements of that image are placed in the frame can make the difference between a good and a great image.

I liked reading the Minimalist Photographer. The book has a gallery at the end of each chapter as well as images interspersed within the text. There are tips of constructing photographic tools that will save you money. The author does a good job of describing the various types of cameras currently available and explaining the differences, their strengths and weaknesses. Topics including light, exposure, and composition are covered without getting overly technical. The chapter on Photographic Philosophy is interesting and thought provoking.

I would recommend this book to those wanting to learn about minimal photography or anyone with an interest in photography as the general information covers multiple areas in photography. Keeping with the idea of minimalism the book is neither too short or too long. It seems just about right. The reader that wants more will surely endeavor to research the subject further.
