In an age of digital and advaned technology, viewers often neglect a photograph's composition and aesthetic value in favour of its informative value. Principles of Design Through Photography is an investigation of how a particular principle of design-rgythm, harmony, contrast, balance and symmety-is used in a composition, and how that composition will, in turn, help the photographer convey an effective massage to the viewer.
Each composition aims to give a visual experience of the principle of design that helps to better preceive a photograph. Each design principle has been isolated as much as pollible so that it can be understood and used in combination with other design elements. This book is an introdction tothe way in which photographs can be read and appreciawted, and will delight students of photography, aesthetes and those who are curious about design and photography.
