Best-Selling Photographer, Michael Freeman, Launches “App” on iTunes

Unparalleled photographic expertise from the author of The Photographer’s Eye

WALTHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 15, 2011 — Michael Freeman’s international bestseller The Photographer’s Eye, published in sixteen languages and with 100,000 copies in print in the US alone and 300,000+ worldwide, has a brand new “app” on iTunes. Created specifically for the iPad, this digital version of the bestselling book features a video introduction, interactive elements including diagrams, and numerous recordings of the author.

In this new “app” Michael Freeman's voice recordings talk photographers through the thinking behind certain shots. There are interactive presentations, including one where photographers can alter the composition of the image by adjusting the horizon. There's also a video introduction and complete horizontal and vertical layouts all the way through so you can read in your choice of comfort (many apps like this only have one or the other).

Now in this new digital format, The Photographer’s Eye, published by Focal Press in North America and Ilex Press elsewhere, continues to speak to photographers everywhere. Both the book and the “app” show how anyone can develop the ability to see and shoot great digital photographs. The book explores all the traditional approaches to composition and design, but crucially, it also addresses the new digital technique of shooting in the knowledge that a picture will later be edited, manipulated, or montaged to result in a final image that may be very different from the one seen in the viewfinder.
