It seems that Mark Galer can be relied upon for sensible and pragmatic advice. This book is an easy read and invaluable for my studies and work in photography.

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.

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".
