Decoding photographic images( Visual )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 280 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. This program illustrates how basic components of photography--line, shape, form, texture, balance, volume duality, point of view, depth of field, and perspective--contribute to an image's impact on the subconscious mind. Commentary is provided by Herb Zettl, author of the seminal Sight Sound Motion, and photographers Jo Whaley, Stephen Johnson, Larry Sultan, and Catherine Wagner."--FMG on Demand website
