Composition: From Snapshots to Great Shots, 2nd Edition | Peachpit

Part of the From Snapshots to Great Shots series. The book never really covers the exact elements of composition.

I think the thng I enjoyed the most was the chapters by other photographers like Steve Simon and John Batdorff and their takes on composition.

While it took me a long while to read, this is because it does a really good job of providing a set of exercises at the end of each chapter. Does cover some technical elements but really focuses on composition.
