"Composition in Photography
- The Photographer as Storyteller"

By Thorsten von Overgaard

 

Read sample chapters:

The subject of Composition is far different and more simple than what you would think. The way I write is breaking it up in inspirational chapters. I released a preview, "Which Lens Are You?" that you can read here to get a flavor of the book:

The book I couldn't stop writing

The Composition book was meant to be a short book of 250 pages, but it ended up being a passion to write, and I've kept adding new chapters, and the result is a 862 page book.

In it's final stages. "The Compsition in Photography - The Photographer as Storyteller" book printout for final read-through that I completed a few days ago.

Reviews - What people say:

"After receiving your book this morning I’ve not been able to put it down and have already read 360 pages. The text and illustrations are very insightful, and the pace of the book feels like I’m being gently led towards a better understanding. It also imbues confidence in what I’m already doing and confirms that you should trust ones own instincts. It’s your best work so far."

"Unlike other books I’ve read on the subject of composition, it is not a reference manual (or imitation of such.) Thorsten Overgaard is quite frank from the very first pages that the purpose of the book is to inspire and share his experiences and techniques, rather than analyze the work of photographers as a gallery curator or an art critic would. I find that most approachable and practical way to teach someone something. Think about it like working with a vastly experienced co-worker and mentor, rather than sitting in a class. I love how hands-on and laid back Thorsten Overgaard's witting style is."

"Downloaded the book, looked at the table of contents ... jumped directly to "Fear of Sharpness" just for the sake of curiosity.. Lovely !!!! I'm sure I'll love this book!!!"

"The book is incredible. I’m halfway through and you really get the sense of a life lived to the max. Your experience as an entrepreneur comes out every now and then adding that right tinge of reality while also allowing for the heart to take over. Great work. It’s like therapy for the human spirit."

“I'm not sure if it’s the way you write, or the things you write, but they resonate whilst I’m out making photographs. Keep inspiring!”
M.L.

"Beautiful and inspiring. Many hours of reading, contemplation
and action from it."

"Finished reading the new book - Excellent !"

"Finally found a good book on the subject. Inspiring, full of practical advice
and shared experience
. I love how hands-on and laid back
Thorsten's witting style is."

"Thanks for your long awaited new book! I always find your books inspiring for myself and my photography. Please find attached three images as some examples of the impact, your books have on my own photography."

"I'm only 150 pages in and so far it's intense and thought-provoking, totally inspirational. The concepts are profound, well explained, and you definitely need to have your wits about you!"

"Like many photographers, I appreciate the time and effort you make to pass on your own experience. Even as a professional, I am learning new things"
