What we see reflects our outlook. In The Photographer's Eye: Seeing With a Camera by Arthur Wenk you will learn the artistic value of photography. Whether you are a novice or an advanced photographer, Arthur provides some simple artistic nuggets that you can use immediately in enhancing what your eyes see through the lens of the camera. You will not only learn basic photography terminology, but you will be able to see a variety of images that are associated with each term. As you become one with the camera, terms like lighting, tone, shape, landscape, balancing, and cropping will become important to you. And to see images that reflect these terms creates that 'ah-ha' moment of understanding. Once you go through the pages of this book, you will not only want to become a photographer or a better photographer, but will begin to look at the world around you differently.

I love photography and, as I view the world, I too can appreciate Arthur’s work and his desire to educate the reader on the various aspects of photography. There are so many layers to this work of art, but once you get the creative bug you’ll want to get out and see what you can create and capture with your camera. What the natural eyes see and what the lens of the camera sees can be totally different. Get a copy of this book, go through the various chapters from Elements of Photography, Composition, Applications, to Editing and discover how important the things that we see and take for granted are the most important things that this life has to offer.
