This is a question I get all the time. What are the best books on photography composition. I have almost thought about making my own book since I get the question so often lol.
As you all know I love to provide tips, tricks, and how to’s with photography. Make sure to head on over to my Youtube channel to see all sorts of tips on photography compositions.
Now, with that being said, I wanted to be able to provide a good answer to the question, so I did a bunch of research on the best books for composition. Please note, that I have not read all these books; however, this is a list of the highest ranking books and / or the most suggested books out there. It has taken me the majority of the year to find these books for you.
As a quick side note, composition theory has been a thing for hundreds of years. Make sure that you do not narrow your search to just photography books. You will be surprised how much you can learn from old books on painting composition. Make sure to check out your local library and just look for books on composition.
So let’s get into it:
Best books on photography composition
*This one comes in around $20
*This little jewel is only $3
*This was one of the most recommended book in all my research. It is around $25
*This was the second most recommended book; however, it is much more expensive coming in at $50
*This is not just a book. This means magazines about photography. There are so many out there that will help you with your photography art. You can sign up via the link above to the National Geographic magazine for 1 year and $25.
