Decoding photographic images( Visual )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When setting up a shot, a photographer works with composition, lighting, and color to create a subliminal subtext that reinforces or even carries the meaning of his or her subject.
