At last! someone has written a book for the compact and DSLR camera user, who are just getting to grips with their camera. This book gives a good basic knowledge in how to use the camera successfully without the technical jargon, and to consentrate on taking photos. There's plenty of books that can give you the science and technical knowledge, I feel the author has met a much needed market. It is a beautifully structured and illustrated book. It is a delight to look through the various styles of photography and see how you can improve your technique. Then after each session the author gives you the basic setup to take successful pictures. He goes through the basic modes of the camera, so that you can concentrate on your photography. I use it in our photography workshop to get beginners used to using their camera's, and also to learn techniques in taking photos. This book is aimed at the beginner, or anyone who wants to improve their photos. DK always produce excellent illustrated books, this one is a gem!

I have recently upgraded from compact (Nikon S4) photography to full SLR (Canon EOS 400D) and all the features (ISO, shutter times, aperture, etc) are a little daunting at first, but having read this book from cover to cover I am now more confident with what to do in all the different conditions I might face. Let's be honest - I'm not exactly going to remember all of the information in the book at each photo opportunity, and I'm not likely to carry this with me all the time, but the information and technique advise, plus full colour photography examples for each subject covered really do lend a hand to the enthusiastic beginner and to those who what to take their photography to a more 'professional finish' level. The majority of detail in the book suggests ways to get the photo right first time, without having to then spend hours with editing software, and it was this advise that I found really useful as I am also a beginner in that arena too, and learning that is twice as hard as just getting a good photo in the first place! I mean what could give more joy that a 'perfect' shot without any post photo editing required?

I love photography but find discovering really inspirational books that are worth buying difficult. Photography books tend to be either very technical, aimed at the amateur or full of the type of photos you have seen a hundred times. I know my way around a camera and am looking for ideas that are different and not bogged down with apertures, f stops and fancy lenses. This book does exactly what it says - it shows you how to photograph absolutely everything, without all the boring bits. The book is full of pictures, over 380 pages full of pictures. It gives advice and tips for improving just about any type of photo, both before it is taken and after. There is so much to inspire you in this book that taking your child to the park, wandering around your garden, a night out with friends or a shopping trip could all turn into a perfect photo opportunity, with some fresh original photos to show for it. Only the most jaded photographer will not find new ideas in this book.

The first thing that strikes you about this general photography book by Tom Ang is the high quality photography and quality feel of the book itself. It is easy to read, mainly because there aren't that many words on each page!. This is essentially a book for beginner to intermediate photographers, looking for general tips and advice. You wont find technical discussions of aperture, depth of field or ISO here - in fact a digital SLR is probably not even required, as most of the advice would work for a good quality 'point & shoot' camera. What it does give you is advice on taking photos of most likely absolutely everything you can think of, that is certainly no exaggeration.
Starting with photography and camera basics, before moving on to large sections by subject, the book is cover to cover with good quality photos illustrating each bit of advice.
People, Landscapes, Animals, Architecture and Events are covered in depth, among others. Help with such varied artistic techniques such as light trails, kirlian photography, reflection, space photography, and considering textures and patterns is also presented, with even pages on promoting a business, selling on ebay, and photos to help sell your car!.
Overall, this is not a book which covers anything in any depth, and as such is mainly for beginners as mentioned before. It is however cover to cover with great photos and small snippets of advice on taking pictures of absolutely everything. As a beginners source book and inspiration for every kind of situation or subject imaginable, it is probably in a league of its own, and there are few photographers that wouldn't learn at least something from this book.

This book is well composed and laidout with various sections on how to take that particular subject. It goes from explaining the basic on most new cameras and how to use them. It then moves on into how to take various photo's in a wide diversaty of subjects and events. I would recommend this book to people who like photography and are just starting out like myself.
