In The Photographer s Eye, Michael Freeman showed what a photographer needs to do in the instant before the shutter is released. In the sequel, The Photographer’s Mind, he explained the way that professional photographers think a picture through before taking it. Both of these international best-sellers featured Michael s own photography: stunning landscapes, revealing portraits, and fascinating street photography. Now, in The Photographer s Vision, he examines the work of photography s greats, explaining how to look at a photo – and how to learn from looking at it.
