Format: Hardcover
Having read the review by Dr Greenthumb I was initially put off of buying this book. However, when it appeared at a really competitive price I decided to buy it on the off chance that it might have some useful information in it. I am really glad that I did, since it arrived I have constantly been dipping into it - and visiting friends have also became engrossed in it!

This is a very informative book, and a thing of beauty in its own right. If photography is a hobby to you (as it is to me), you will find loads of useful information inside this book which is presented in an easy to digest manner. On top of this you will have the added benefit of owning a top quality publication full of beautiful photography.

If you're looking for a field guide, forget it! I haven't actually weighed the book but it is certainly one of the heaviest in my collection. You wouldn't even be able to describe it as a good bed-time read because, if this was laying on your legs for any length of time, it would probably cut off their circulation (lol).

I would highly recommend this book - and I think that my friends would too.

Format: Hardcover
This book looks gorgeous and has a beautiful layout, tons of gorgeous images and interesting text. Double-page spreads on colours e.g. 'Green' or 'Violet' are lovely to look at and some of the composition and colour-theory aspects provide real interest.

BUT...

However if you;re looking for an educational book this is not the one - you may be inspired but you won't really be instructed: there's no detail on settings for the pictures, just missives that "if you're photographing a delta from a boat you should get up early" and that "violet is diffcult to capture" (but not how to capture it). I certainly feel no closer to 'mastering' digital photography and this really is not in an instructional book to take you towards mastery. I feel it's a great one for the enthusiast's coffee table (it's big, very heavy and great high-quality printing) and for interest but not for study.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very nicely presented coffee table book fully illustrated on quality paper (Hardback version). It is well presented and beautifully illustrated but a bit light on actual technical details of the photos. However, I for one do not particularly care what the camera settings were as the lighting details would be different if wanted to photograph the subject myself. It does look at various techniques and this is much more important. Once you master a technique you can alter camera settings to suit your personal preferences or adjust much later using post-processing. Whether you could ever master digital photography from reading a book is doubtful, the experience of taking lots of photographs and critically analysing them is equally productive, but using this book will help improve the proportion of good results.

A good book to dip into rather than try to read from cover to cover.

This is a really great and comprehensive Digital Photography Manual, with some helpful tips and lovely photographs for inspiration.

Highly recommended if you are looking for an all round reference book and are fairly new to digital photography.

Dr Greenthumb should have stopped after "Beautiful, inspirational..."
That's all you need. This is one of the most interesting, non-geeky photography books I've ever read. Who needs f stops and stuff when you're presented with material like this. This is the real sort of thing we need to learn to understand photography. It's approach to composition and structure is just superb. You feel how Freeman felt about every shot, almost as if you were taking the photo.
This is one of those six out of five things.
