His twelve hugely successful books for Nikon digital cameras are the top-selling guidebooks for their respective camera models. He has also written the most comprehensive and best-selling guides for many different models from Canon, Sony, Pentax, and other vendors.

The graduate of Kent State University in Ohio operated his own photo studio and was a principal in one of the largest public relations firms based in San Diego, California, working on press conferences, press kits, media tours, and sponsored photo trade magazine articles for clients including Eastman Kodak Company and Hewlett-Packard. Busch has published more than 2000 photography articles under his by-line in more than 100 different publications. His photos have appeared on the covers of magazines, and in both print and television advertising.

Busch has become one of the leading photojournalist/authors worldwide. He has had as many as five books appear simultaneously in the Amazon.com Top 25 Digital Photography Books, and when Michael Carr of About.com named the top five digital photography books for beginners, the #1 and #2 choices were his Digital Photography All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies and Mastering Digital Photography.

I was disappointed in this book. Lack of depth with regards to information. It is imo a primer but you then will want something more in depth. Repetitive in parts.

Well done, Busch & Sheppard! 28 Jan. 2013
By Edwin Harper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This book is an obligatory "must have" for anyone serious about photographing people. Mr Busch provides suggestions, ideas and photographic examples as well as recommending that the reader Google the names of other greats such as Margaret Bourke-White, Gordon Parks and Henri Cartier Bresson for further reference. What I most enjoyed about the book besides the aforementioned is that Mr Busch does not burden the reader with a plethora of often times confusing photographic terminology. He touches on each topic (such as depth of field and aperture) but is more concerned, as was the great Lisette Model, that one has to familiarize him/herself with his/her camera and practice, practice, practice. I do not think that this book should be just for newbies but also for anyone who is serious about taking good photographs of people. I have read countless books on this topic but feel that only Mr Busch and his associate Rob Sheppard have successfully addressed the issues of taking GOOD photographs of people whether one chooses to shoot them in formal, informal or candid settings. One cannot ask for more than what these authours have to offer us in a concise 134 pages. Thank you, Mr Busch and Mr Sheppard!

David Busch's Portrait/Candid/Street Photography Compact Field Guide 12 July 2013
By Millied - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This book is well written. I like how the book is set up, like a text book. The sections and bold headers for each topic and sub-topic. Easy to read and understand and actually fun to learn from. I recommend this book to anyone who wants more information on people photography. I enjoy the street photography chapters the most.

Very useful 22 Mar. 2013
By Martin F Quinlan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
Well laid out and easy to read. The way David writes is informative and precise but the really great things is that he has a way of doing it without making you feel like a blithering idiot.

I cannot wait to work through each chapter in the studio and in the street with a camera in my hand.
