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.

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

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.

I really enjoyed reading this book, I wasn't sure if I would like it, as I am not really a girly girl & from the title I thought it may be not my thing.
But I was wrong, It's filled with very useful info for beginners and beyond.

There are pictures taken by Lorna the Author/photographer of the book, that are not only stunning to look at, but show the camera setting's used and an explanation about the subject/location.
Very useful format for picking up tip's.

Really helpful to see the camera settings with the visual example, I am such a visual person, So they are great for when you are trying to get a particular look on your image.

Only one point, I really wished I had ordered the actual book, not the kindle edition. As its one of those books you could just flick through for inspiration or if you are struggling with settings, lens, subjects etc..
So I would recommend the book if you are going to want to keep going back for pointers like me.
But it still looked lovely in the app too.

Handy for women, but also men too as this I'm sure this would be appreciated by anyone with an interest in improving/learning more about photography.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this one. X

This is a great book and has taught me a lot in a short space of time about the technical stuff that I was struggling to get my head around.The book is split between the history of cameras (does not dwell),then the technical then a third section on advice at different types of functions and scenarios. I have only given four star and not five as I would like a bit more on composition and such. An excellent book and would recommend to any amateur photographer,regardless of gender.

Have developed a very keen interest in photography. Have completed a few courses, but I do agree with the general (some will say sexist) sell of this book, that women do think differently to men. My husband loves the technical side of the cameras whilst I love the actual process of taking photos and whilst I have understanding of how my DLSR works, this is an excellent guide that I can keep referring back to for the more technical aspect of things.

Being a Licentiate member of the Royal Photographic Society, I purchased this book for my grand-daughter who intends to study photography as part of her A level options. The book seems to me to provide a well rounded approach to the subject in a clear, simple way. Technical issues in some books in relation to photography appear as just "gobbledegook", but this book deals with them well. As a "starter" book, it takes some beating.!!
