"Patterson's superb color shots, as well as his explanation of his unique approach to picture-taking, are sure to inspire you to explore fresh avenues in your own photography."
-- The Globe and Mail

The second book in Freeman Patterson's internationally acclaimed series of instructional books on photography and visual design,Photography and the Art of Seeing has now been updated and expanded to include technical guidelines adapted for both digital and film photographers.

Photography and the Art of Seeing also offers a workshop for all visual artists that includes lessons on the fundamentals of perception and overcoming obstacles in their work.

This edition features several never-before-published photographs from Freeman Patterson's personal collection and extended captions that include valuable technical information and personal commentary.
