-- Cartagena de Indias, Colombia - Norwegian author Thomas Hilmersen follows up on the success of his last book, The Minimalist Way, by detailing how you can apply Minimalist principles to the field of photography. In The Minimalist's Guide to Photography, he claims that most people are unaware of the many photographic opportunities that surround them and offers a simple solution: Open your eyes, enjoy life more directly, and take better photos to boot! Hilmersen also shows how to compose your images to make them more visually interesting, in contrast to the typical pose-and-smile photos most tourists take home from their vacations. There are additional sections on how to create professional-
looking images with three key tools that can be found even in free editing software, as well as how to choose the best equipment for your needs. As the book's subtitle implies, the author does not believe heavy, expensive DSLRs and tripods are necessary - a high-quality pocket camera will be of more value in your photographic endeavors. This book, which sells for only $2,99 on amazon.com, is guaranteed to inspire both your photography and your everyday life.
