Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is with a certain wickedness that I first read a book described as a Dictionary - I always look for those specialised words you almost know won't be included! This time I was foxed. Everytime I tried to catch out the text, there was the entry staring me in the face!
This is a very comprehensive dictionary of photography with an emphasis (rather than obsession) with digital cameras and media. It is, in fact, a very well balanced book for Photography today. There are one or two dubious (or at least ambiguous) entries but for a first edition we can excuse those. If it is light in any areas it is in the area of software. This is no big problem and, by experience, I would suggest the complementary title 'THe Photoshop User's A to Z to fill in the 'holes' left here.
This book should be on the bookshelf of every contemporary photographer whether they class themselves as amateur, enthusiast or professional. It can be enjoyed as a good read as well as reference!

Save your money 15 Jun. 2003
By "jimdav81" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Simply put, how can you have a "Dictionary of Photography"
without any photographic examples? I am an Amateur / Semi-Professional who has been shooting photos for nearly 25 years.
I have photographed weddings, corporate events and stock photos. As well as art photos for my own personal enjoyment. Maybe its my level of knowledge and expertise, but I don't see how this book would be of much use to anyone. Dedicated Amateurs and Professionals such as my self would know what the author was trying to say. However, a beginner or even an intermediate photographer might not understand a text only definition. Imagine Gray's Anatomy as only text and no diagrams. Granted one cannot have a picture next to every entry, that just wouldn't be practical. But the publishing company should include several hundred photographic examples for its next edition. If anyone reading this review is considering this book, take it from someone who knows, save your money. Purchase "The Photographer's Handbook" by John Hedgecoe instead.
