Book Description

25 Oct 2013
This is the only complete guide to photography that is designed specifically for women looking to improve their photography skills for pleasure and profit. With inspirational case studies and examples from professional and semi-pro female photographers, user-friendly technical explanations and image critiques, this book is a practical and useful toolkit for busy girls who enjoy photography. Becoming an accomplished and competent photographer needs to be approached in three stages: - Understand your camera and learn how to drive it - Composition - tune in and understand your subject - Post production - share and print However, rather than explain every technical function from the outset, the aim of this book is to demystify the jargon and take you, step by step, back to the basic fundamental principals of photography; first putting you in control of the camera which will, in turn, free up the composition and creativity. The more advanced features of the camera and in-depth processes can be explored once the basic principals are understood. This is a fun, contemporary photography book that will become your essential tool for taking your passion for photography to the next level.

5.0 out of 5 stars bloody awful title hiding a fantastic book 27 Dec 2013
By b
Format:Paperback
Having been given it for christmas I am so in love with it it explains in clear and easy to understand ways the fundamental principles of good photography. For me it brought my knowlege from waybackwhen pre-digital up to date
from setting the scene to prossessing and finally printing I would say this is an essential book for anyone wanting to make the first steps away from auto even if you have to amend the title with a marker pen. If I could have given it more stars I would have. I cant put it down

5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive book & not just for busy girls 15 Nov 2013
By JayMain
Format:Paperback
My wife has this book and it has been laying around for a few days. I am quite a keen photographer myself but I learnt a lot in the first few minutes of browsing and ended up working my way through the whole book. I think everybody will learn something from this book, not just the basics of photography but a lot on how to treat your subjects, how to break the accepted rules for good effect and definitely lots of expert tips. It is a comprehensive guide that takes you right from the camera itself through to handling the digital image.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 30 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback
Wow what an amazing book - I am terrible at reading books, I tend to skip pages but I was gripped with this one. Made it all very easy and resolved a few issues with my nikon d90 so a majorly worthwhile investment - saved me having to get some tuition! Brilliant book and defo gonna buy it for my girlfriends for Christmas and a few boys too if they're lucky. Think the boys probably need it more than the girls anyhow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Level! 30 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback
Having read another book by the same author, 'the busy girls guide' was a natural place to come to when looking for a digital photography guide for my wife - I say I bought it for my wife but this has proved to be better than any of the guides I've come across!
the book teaches everything you need to know without being too techie, a very refreshing approach to a photography guide when the alternatives all seem to be overly nerdy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, blummin' awful title! 4 July 2014
By MS
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't be put off by the terrible terrible title of this book or the occasional truly cringe-worthy reference inside to 'girl(s)' (which make me want to scream btw!). The rest of this book is excellent and one of the best guides for beginners I've read. Finally someone who is able to explain the relationship between aperture, ISO and shutter speed, and how and if these affect depth of field, and what metering is and why you'd want to think about it, and focal length (something my photographer-friend couldn't do!), as well as giving ideas on composition for different subject, all in clear, unambiguous language without dumbing it down. Really very good indeed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Annoying title hides useful guide 9 Mar 2014
By Eljay
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I tend to shy away from gender slanted products, but was persuaded by other reviews to buy this as a good introduction. It is just that, pleasingly laid out, lots of pictures and concise explanations of things.
