Book Review: “Essential Composition: A Guide for the Perplexed” by Richard Bernabe

I’ll confess I’m a fan of Richard Bernabe’s work. He’s a very talented landscape photographer, a member of the Carolinas Nature Photography Association and, like me, makes his home in the Carolinas. A “home boy” if you will. Recently Richard released a new ebook, “Essential Composition: A Guide for the Perplexed.” As is typical with his ebook offerings the publication is well illustrated with some of his marvelous photographs. At the paltry price of eight dollars the photography alone may well justify the investment. However, if you’re seeking insight into photographic composition be aware this offering is anything but in-depth. As suggested in the title, “essential,” the book lightly reviews the more common compositional guides (rules). If you’re familiar with these “rules” and are looking for a deeper look into photographic compositional decisions this probably isn’t the book for you. On the other hand if you’re struggling to understand composition or you want to look at some awe inspiring landscape images you won’t be disappointed.
