Perception and Imaging Photography as a Way of SeeingOf perception memory color time space shapes illusion and Imaging Photography as a Epubsubliminals rhetoric personality style and photo critiue Unlike any other book Perception and Imaging will give you an extensive understanding of how photography relates to art design advertising psychology and philosophy as well as what makes photography uniue among the image making disciplines Whether you are a beginner or a professional this information will help you appreciate photography not simply as a mastering of techniue and composition but as a way of truly seeing es. If I were advising any photography student on the selection of one book to purchase and to keep in their permanent library it would probably be Perception and Imaging by John Suler and Richard D Zakia There are thousands of books and magazines that will teach you the technical aspects of the craft – fstops shutter speeds lens selection etc – and those are all good things to know on the way to becoming a good craftsman There are also an eual number of books that will teach you much about composition and lighting helping you to raise your craft to the level of art But there are few resources which attempt to take the student to the next and final level of visual artistry which is to gain an understanding of the meaning andor purpose of their creative imagery and Suler and Zakia’s Perception and Imaging is the most comprehensive such book imaginable If there is a gap in this reference tome I have yet to find itFrom the basics of Figure and Ground explanation to a discussion on Memory and Association and on through to Rhetoric and Personality Suler and Zakia give us concise explanations of how these elements affect our creative process while simultaneously affecting the perceptions of those who view our resultant imagery Best of all they accomplish this in clear simple language presented in easily digestible bites You can open this book to any random page and in a few minute’s reading gain an understanding of one important aspect of how effective imagery is made and why imagery elicits the emotional responses from us that it so obviously does Undoubtedly you will feel compelled to read both forward and backward from this point to round out your understanding of this new idea and Perception and Imaging never fails to deliver And finally if like me you are daunted by a book with too many words and the threat of information overload Perception and Imaging contains a liberal dose of illustrative figures to effectively translate the instructional text into meaningful imagery As well the margins of the text are inhabited by a plethora of uotes often as humorous as they are relevant Who else but Suler and Zakia would think to uote Mae West in a book about photographyThough I’ve only begun to tap the full depths of wisdom contained in this book my favorite uote is a rephrasing of a uote by Nietsche which now reads “The most intelligible part of a visual language is not the elements but the tone force modulation tempo in which a group of visual elements are arranged and displayed – that is the music behind the elements the emotion behind the music everything that cannot be visualized” I will be absorbing that thought into my photography for the rest of my career
