Format: Hardcover
There are not many books like this. The authors have set themselves a difficult task and succeeded spectacularly. If you only invest in one or two books on the subject, buy it! If you fancy a small library, you may just possibly think you don't need it...

Photographing Garden Wildlife covers everything; all from first principles (check Amazon's LookInside feature): floral and faunal ecology, gardening for wildlife, photographic equipment and functionality, subject matter, picture composition, and image processing. In little more than 100 pages, half of which is occupied by gorgeous photos.

The writing is succinct, salient and highly readable. So you'll find a broad range of nuggets of useful advice, but no in-depth exposition of any one subject. The title per se covers roughly one third of the book; and the photos are mostly inspirational rather than integral to the text.

If you're au fait(-ish) with any of the topics, then don't expect anything new. It's not reasonable to demand a comprehensive book of this size be profound too! And it doesn't seek to be radical. But consider the topics you're less familiar with, or its visual luxuriance.

One fair criticism is: why isn't there more? More creatures, more plants, more kit, and more idiosyncratic approaches could all have been included with advantage. A more-advanced example or two would perhaps be just the thing to round off each section... Let's hope the publisher decides to produce an expanded second edition.

Lastly, don't approach the book with any mistaken preconceptions. It's a set of straightforward tips covering the whole business of capturing beautiful images of relatively-common wildlife subjects.

This a good book to thumb through when wanting ideas for picture taking in the garden at home.I do feel there could have been more pictures of more of the common birds and certainly more ideas as to how to shoot small insects.I do realise everyone has their own systems and interests,but to gain general knowledge I would have thought there was more to say and aid new comers to this hobby.It is amazing the amount one can suggest to folk by just telling them to sit still and wait for things to arrive without great setup instructions on fancy cameras.Sure the cover of this book is what every hobby photographer wants in their album,a robin is such a friendly little bird which reminds so many people of the Christmas season and the good will to all!

I found this book really helpful being a novice to photography. It is written in down to earth terms without the usual technical terms that only professionals would understand. The illustrations are brilliant showing results with small bridge cameras and the higher end too. It explains clearly what aperture achieves and how to do it. Tips on lighting and so much more.
If you are new to photography and don't wish to talked down to then this is the book for you. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and keep referring to it for understandable tips
Well done the author.
