Format:Hardcover
I have been looking for a book like this for a while - photography books are usually very specific, too general, written for dummies etc.

This books strikes a good balance and would make an ideal gift for someone new to photography or someone with a little more experience, looking for a guide/reminder full of hints and tips..

Digital cameras mean that everyone can have ago at being creative and this book provides plenty of advice and information for all skill levels.

I would recommend this book at this price...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a single photo in the Kindle edition 16 Mar 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Please be aware that if you buy the Kindle version, there is not a single photograph - quite a failing for a photography book, and making the Kindle edition stunningly bad value, compared to the cheaper proper book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant manual 13 Oct 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm not a professional photographer though I try hard to get the best results I can, I find this manual a great help in most aspects of photography. I purchased a copy as a birthday present for a friend who is also an enthusiastic photographer (Better than me!) and she calls it her photographic bible for all matters regarding photography, she recomends it to all her friends as do I.
Well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent photography guide! 17 Sep 2011
By Emily
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Bought this as a reference book to help me with photography, as I am completely new to it and have just started an AS level in it. There are very clear colour photographs on nearly every page, which are really enjoyable to look at, and the writing itself is very clearly written and easy to understand. I like how it also shows a diagram of the parts to a SLR camera, explaining what they all do etc. Overall, I'd recommend this to any photography fan, novice or professional.
