Format: Paperback
"Lonely Planet's Best Ever Photography Tips" by Richard l'Anson is well done book full of photography tips that can help you becoming a better photographer instead of buying a new camera.

The long-known fact is that you can learn to photograph and impress your audience even if you have equipment that is almost worthless, while on the other hand the most advanced equipment in the hands of someone who doesn't know won't make great pictures, but the picture will be even worse than if you took them with a pocket camera.

It's often amazing how the simplest advices that can be learned about lighting, object positioning, backlight, time of day in which the photographs are looking best, aperture and some other, the vast majority of people don't know, although it would take them about ten minutes to learn them - as result their photos would be improved, literally immediately.
In this sense publication of this nicely designed, informative and handy booklet that can be read once and then always carry with you to be reminded is great.
The author on one place gathered the most important information that will help you making better photographs and learn to make better use of equipment that is at your disposal.

He will advise you about choosing correct equipment and adequate accessories such as lens and tripods, introduce to the terms of exposure, ISO and depth of field, teach you how to avoid blur and choose right file format for you, how to position your objects following the rule of thirds.
What I especially liked about this book was author's emphasis that good photographers are becoming good due to constant practice.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When I ordered this book I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. Was it aimed at keen amateurs that have already mastered their cameras? Perhaps complete novices or maybe even any level that are interested in maximising their photo success on any travel occasion.

I've come to the conclusion that it's attempting to be fit for all book and that's fine. However, whilst the tips at first reading seem easy content to read, many of the tips actually cover topics in brief that could confuse many photographers, particularly those that are new to cameras. For instance, exposure compensation which requires a great deal of thought and knowledge about how the camera will react under certain conditions. Much of the knowledge of any camera lies at the door of the owner but it continually surprises me that many new photographers allow their camera to make all the decisions. In so doing items like exposure compensation may/will mean nothing to them and probably don't even know where to look for it.

One thing I would have like to see on each of the photographs would be more data like shutter speed, aperture chosen and iso selected. This may also mean nothing to many but for me it would illustrate why raising the iso was needed and why a shutter speed was required for that photo.

In summary, the data contained is OK but I think if you're interested in photography I'd probably recommend either taking a course/s or purchasing a book about photography that really chews through information about the art of photography and how to get the best out of the camera that you have.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have to admit that, as someone who has bought quite a few Lonely Planet guidebooks over eh years, this was perhaps not quite what I was expecting; but I can't say that I was disappointed. In fact, I'm actually surprised at how many times I've tipped in and out of the different sections, looking for little tips.

The format is quite small, but ideal for slipping into a jacket pocket or a camera bag (17cm x 10cm or 7" x 4"), with x45 tips set out over a double page. Each tip is set with a few key pointers and then an example shot (see picture) Just in case you can't what you're looking for, there's a simple glossary and index at the back of the book as well. It really is a simple format, but it works.

Now to be absolutely fair, the print quality is one thing that niggles a little bit. When you're looking at different photographs on a scene, which are intended to illustrate different set-ups or technique, the lower quality print doesn't really help. Some things are fairly obvious, and common sense, so the ideas aren't lost.

I do think that it is a great little book, a well set out, simple idea, that encourages you to think about the picture, but still capture that moment. Given the price as well, I'd be very tempted to buy one as a gift and another one for myself, it really is a great book to dip into or inspiration, without being too technical or weighty to read.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Since the arrival of digital I have solved my inability to take really outstanding pictures by snapping dozens of similar shots and deleting the majority of the resulting poor pictures. This very helpful little pocket guide has encouraged me to take just a little more time and far fewer shots. Already within a few days I have seen a distinct improvement in the quality of the pictures I have taken. I have even been brave enough to take my camera off the fully automatic setting and tried to use the many other settings on my camera. I intend to follow the sage advice in the book and practice but I doubt if I will ever take shots quite as good as the ones which illustrate this guide! I think this would make a superb stocking filler for any photographer - be they extremely well qualified to hold a camera or a rank amateur like myself.fjs
