Photographically Seeing

Are you ready to learn and understand how you eyes work—and how to make your visual perception sharper and better fit for the task of finding potential photographs? My new eBook “Photographically Seeing—Seeing Better, Seeing Deeper” will take your seeing—and thus your photography—to the next level.

For a photographer, seeing is where it all really starts. If you don’t see anything that interests you, you won’t be able to take any interesting photos. Obviously. However, there is a big difference between seeing in general and seeing with the intention of taking photographs.

“Photographically Seeing—Seeing Better, Seeing Deeper” will take you on a journey into how our eyes and brain work and teach you how you can develop and train your perceptive skills.

By training your perceptiveness, you not only improve your ability to discover and see potential subjects better and thus are able to create stronger and better photographs, but the opposite is also true. In the process of photographing, you train yourself to see more deliberately and clearer. The camera can consequently help liberate your awareness to see clearly and keenly, to know something about who you really are, and open your being to an unfading swell of empathy and compassion for those you meet along the way.

Maybe it’s time to discover how to see again? By taking the time to truly focus on what it is you see you’ll be able to create more engaging photos. Rediscover what it is you really see, and you will probably find that your photos will change dramatically. Good seeing doesn’t ensure good photography by itself, though, but a captivating photographic expression is impossible without it.

“Photographically Seeing—Seeing Better, Seeing Deeper” is 106 pages packed with useful information and practical exercises to make to see what is rather than what you believe is there.

  1. Definitely an interesting and very helpful ebook for those who want to learn more about photography. Too bad he’s just an Englishman, sigh sigh 😪😪
    Ciao, Pat

  2. Otto, congratulations on your e-book, how fantastic. I definitely would like to get a copy, but probably will wait until I get back home in England. I am currently traveling in Italy and things have been hectic with moving form one place to another quite fast. Do I just order it from that link? Will it be sent to may email address? Much success to you Otto.

    1. Thanks for the comment, Gilda. The link will send you to a site where you can order the book, which will be sent to the email address you provide. Enjoy Italy! (Just a little envious)…

  3. Thanks for very the informative and helpful tips. Photography is capturing both what we see and what we hope to see. What may be ordinary to some , becomes extraordinary when we see them as such under our lenses. A photographer is like a painter, and the world it’s canvas.

  4. This looks to be an invaluable book on photography, as you say there is such a big difference between seeing the world and then seeing with the intention of taking photographs. Well done, and congratulations, Otto, I look forward to the read.

  5. Congratulations on the book, Otto. It’s an important subject and a nice change from the usual “how to shoot on manual”, or “this is the rule of thirds” topic.

  6. I agree with Louis. I would love to see the world as a photographer does. I sometimes look at your photos and wonderful how you can capture something more than just an image. You have a gift Otto and you are very generous to share it with us all. Sincere thanks!

  7. Congratulations on getting your book out. It must have been a lot of work, but what a great use of your time. I really like the cover image and the idea that the camera actually helps us know ourselves better and see the world more clearly is very interesting.

  8. Heartfelt congratulations, Otto. What an achievement! 🙂
    Wishing you many, many happy readers. I have been looking forward to this one – well I was actually hoping for a signed first edition for my library so if it gets a print, keep one back for me. In the mean time the PDF will do. Well done.
    All the best from us in Cley. x
