Mastering Photographic Composition, Inspiration and Personal Style
a new book by Alain Briot


A comprehensive work on Composition featuring
370 pages with 360 photographs and Illustrations

Foreword by Tony Sweet

All purchases qualify for our Beauty, Passion and Inspiration Drawing



The Book
My second book, Mastering Photographic Composition, Creativity and Personal Style, is available. The print quality is beautiful and the text is illustrated with numerous photographs, many of them never published before in print. There are over 350 photographs and illustrations in the book.

The book is 370 pages long. This is 125 pages more than my first book which is 245 pages long. The layout is professionally done. I am naturally "picky" but I must say I have found nothing to object to in the layout, the printing or any other aspect of the book.

To celebrate the publication of this important work I am offering the book in both a Companion Print set and a Master Print Set. These sets, which you can see below, consist of the book, plus a Fine Art print plus the Master Files (Master Print Set only) and more (see the detailed list below).

The photograph I selected for this unique offer, Dancing Light, is the book cover image. This will allow you to compare the book print quality to the fine art print quality. Together, the book and the print form a beautiful Set that you will enjoy for years to come and that you will be proud and display.

Testimonials

Dam!!!!! you have done it again.  Just as I feel comfortable in work along comes another set of ideas of goals or thoughts which inspire me to reexamine what I am trying to create.  Have just started book but enjoy the (dry) humor such as "I buy the best cards, lenses and equipment I can find".  Hope to work my way through in the next week or two.
Steve, Texas

Your book and the excellent print arrived yesterday. I was amazed by the
rich contents of the book and I am sure that it will be my invaluable
guide for many years to come. Just want to say a big thank you for sharing your expert experience with us.
TK, Hong Kong

Your book has arrived today and it's in perfect condition.  I feel bad for paying so little for the book - you should charge at least 10x more! I took a quick glimpse and I'm amazed with all the information that you put up together and all the things that you reveal that I'm sure most photographers wouldn't dare to!
Luis, Brazil

I really enjoy your new book, “Photographic Composition, Creativity and Personal Style.” I have probably read approximately 30 or so books on the subject of Landscape Photography (I enjoy reading).  Your “Mastering Landscape Photography” is the most insightful for me. The discussion of your journey as an artist captured my imagination and helped point me in a direction that was both liberating as well as daunting…development of a personal style.

That is why your second book resonated with me.  The subject of a personal style may be the most important topic that isn’t covered, and if covered only indirectly, in photography books that I have read so far (and I have read a bunch). You really handle it well. The challenge of defining abstract concepts in a practical and rational manner must have been as introspective as it was probably incredibly time consuming. I am most appreciative.
Lloyd, Texas

Thank you for writing the book "Mastering Photographic Composition,  
Creativity and Personal Style". For me it is a must read, no other book goes into such detail about how to go from idea to finished print.

What struck me most in the book is that you explain your workflow in a very detailed way. From the start, the idea (creating art) to the finished product (the print).

It has caused me to look at the scene in a complete different way as I was used to. You're an equal excellent photographer, master printer and a writer.
Emmanuel, over email

I got my copy of your second book last week. I really like the chapter about how to develop your own style and inner self as a photographer. I have both of your books. They are fantastic and full of great ideas.

About Companion Prints:
Matted Companion Prints are valued at $175 each. They are not sold individually. They are only available in combination with books, tutorials, DVDs and other major projects.
Companion prints are presented in 8x10 museum quality matting. Companion prints are released in an open edition and are printed on Ilford Gold Fibre paper on Epson 4880 running under ImagePrint using Epson inks.

Companion Prints are printed, curated, matted and packaged to museum standards, the same standards we follow for all my work.

By purchasing a Companion print set during this special offer, you save over $100 compared to buying the Print + Book + Shipping at full price.
By purchasing both books and both companion prints set, you save over $250 compared to buying the Prints + Books + Shipping at full price!


About Master Prints:

Matted Master Prints are valued at $395 in the Print of the Month Collection and at $595 when not part of the Print of the Month collection.
Master prints are presented in 16x20 museum quality matting. The Master Print in this offer is released in an edition of 100 copies. Each print carries a special label and marking clearly indicating that this is a unique, limited edition print.

Since I do not normally number prints unless they are part of a portfolio, this print is an exception and a rarity in itself.
Master prints are not usually released in limited editions, making this Master Print uniquely collectible and rare. This limited edition release is only available during this special offer. We expect it to sell out quickly because of its rarity.

Master Print Sets include the Master File for Dancing Light, and also for Playa Reflections if you order both books during this special offer. Master Files allow you to see exactly how I created the final print file, including all the adjustments, contrast, color, and enhancement layers. Having the Master Files lets you see exacly how I prepared each photograph for printing and gives you the opportunity to study each adjustment layer as if you were looking over my shoulder while I work. These adjustment layers can be used on your own photographs, thereby providing a shortcut to success and saving you hours of trial and error. Master files are valued at $75 each. They are not sold individually.

The paper I selected for these prints is Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308 gr, my favorite paper at this time. The prints are done on my Epson 4880 running under ImagePrint using Epson inks. The print quality is stunning.

Master Prints are printed, curated, matted and packaged to museum standards, the same standards we
follow for all my work.

By purchasing a Master Print set during this
special offer you save over $130 compared to buying the Print + Book + Shipping at full price
