    Bryan Peterson - Learn to See Creatively (Revised Edition)

    Almost everyone can “see” in the conventional sense, but developing photographic vision takes practice. Learning to See Creatively helps photographers visualize their work, and the world, in a whole new light.
    Now totally rewritten, revised, and expanded, this best-selling guide takes a radical approach to creativity. It explains how it is not some gift only for the “chosen few” but actually a skill that can be learned and applied. Using inventive photos from his own stunning portfolio, author and veteran photographer Bryan Peterson deconstructs creativity for photographers. He details the basic techniques that went into not only taking a particular photo, but also provides insights on how to improve upon it—helping readers avoid the visual pitfalls and technical dead ends that can lead to dull, uninventive photographs.
    This revised edition features the latest information on digital photography and digital imaging software, as well as an all-new section on color as a design element. Learning to See Creatively is the definitive reference for any photographers looking for a fresh perspective on their work.

    Andrew Loomis - Creative Illustration

    "Creative Illustration" is an amazing book. It is extremely useful, advice given in the book is exceptional. Most things discussed and showcased in this book I have never seen in any other art books (contemporary or vintage). Unique. Unbelievably good.
    This book made me a better artist, and I feel like now I understand everything with so much more depth.
    Loomis also gives a little insight in master Pyle's methods, compositions and advice for success in the industry that is still valid today.
    Best investment of a hundred dollars I've ever made. A definite must have for a professional, a gem for the serious student of illustration.

    The Fundamentals of Creative Design

    AVA Academia is a new list of college textbooks, which aims to bridge the gap between traditional text-heavy reference books and the visual eye candy of showcase books. Each title will be written by a leading college professor or lecturer and will be edited to fit into the diverse curricula of art schools and colleges around the world. One of the first titles in this new imprint, The Fundamentals of Creative Design offers an introduction to key elements of the creative process. Each subject matter, or 'fundamental', uses detailed diagrammatic explanation, associated theories, and historical references to explain the underlying principles of design practice. Examples from contemporary designers and practitioners will be examined in terms of Brief, Process and Result and accompanied by personal explanations from the creatives involved. This book offers a unique insight into the working methods of creative professionals and enables the reader to understand both how and why these fundamental rules are so important.

    Thank you for the shares!

    May I comment regarding these books,. while they look very useful (they are indeed useful) - it still boils down to thing: IF we READ & DIGEST , and APPLY what we read (if we have 'followed-through' the whole books)..

    Some are great (wordy) - while some are kick ass (short but straight to the point)..but mostly produce 'similar' stuff - for m.o.n.e.y.,:)
    This is just an HO, from IMHO. :)

    Thanks for sharing!
    I will share some too, if i dont find 'tasty-s' in here..
