For me, composition is by far the most important aspect of photography and a hot topic among my students.
My philosophy is that even when you have great light and great subjects, you’ll still get nothing if you don’t have a pleasing composition. Perfect technique and the best equipment amounts to nothing if your compositions are boring, so it’s essential to take the time to learn as much as you can about composition.
What’s in the Book?
With the excellent ‘Visual Flow’ ebook from Ian Plant featuring George Stocking, you’ll be well on your way to expanding your understanding of composition regardless of your photographic style. Ian delves in to all of the major aspects of composition such as:
- Breaking the Rules
- Elements of Composition
- Visual Mass
- How to Look at Shapes, Lines and Curves
- The Illusion of Depth
- Forced Perspective
- Vanishing Points
- Lenses and Perspective
- And Many More topics
This is just a small list of the many compositional topics covered in ‘Visual Flow’.
With each topic, Ian includes some beautiful images and helpful diagrams to demonstrate his explanations.

Another feature I love about this ebook is that it’s a well formatted PDF document so I can read it on my phone or tablet. This makes it great for reading on location while you’re out on a shoot and need some pointers. iPad users that have the retina display will love the gorgeous images from Ian and George Stocking.
