"The 52 assignments here will nurture readers photography skills by acclimating them to photographic technology and by encouraging them to make this largely digital and mechanical medium more their own. Commercial photographer Steve Sonheim and artist, instructor, and author Carla Sonheim (Drawing Lab for Mixed Media Artists: 52 Creative Exercises To Make Drawing Fun) believe in the significance of a photograph, even in this age of ubiquitous cameras. Sections on observation, light, storytelling, portraiture, and more will help readers realize photography s creative potential. Assignments allow readers to use their choice of digital single-lens reflex, point-and-shoot, or smartphone cameras. VERDICT This highly accessible guidebook will have broad appeal." - Library Journal"
