Format:Paperback
The book itself is a really good one, explaining basic techniques clearly and fully. A good starting point for beginners, and for amateurs who feel the need of a better approach to photography.
But too much material - text, images - is the same found in the other books in the "Essential skill" series, making far less useful to have more than one book.

3.0 out of 5 stars This book was OK 20 Mar 2006
By Jennifer Bates - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for its 'classroom' style, but unfortunately, I haven't gotten much out of it. The pictures weren't even good examples for me to mimic. I guess I'm glad to have it for future reference, but I did cancel "Studio Photography" off of my order once I read through "Location Photography".
