"All the technology in the world can't help you see a good picture" - John Greengo
For many years I traveled without a camera. Looking at the world, observing the people and the events. Becoming more aware of my surroundings and training my eye to see a good picture. The lack of camera removed the need to look through the lens or worry about the technicalities of photography.
Michael Freeman's The Photographers Eye is great way to continuing my training. The book teaches the fundamentals of design, composition, light and process of photography. The book is written in a simple jargon free language with some beautiful pictures. If you want to become a good photographer, do read and assimilate this book. It is *must* read for every aspiring photographer.
