Having enjoyed David's first book 'Waiting for the Light', I was looking forward to more of the same from 'Full Frame' and wasn't disappointed. Full Frame is broken down into ten different projects around the world, and each section is divided into smaller sub-sections. David uses one photograph in each sub-section and explains how it was taken, and often includes some additional nuggets of photographic or technical information, all in his friendly very readable style. This means that you can sit down and read through a very enjoyable book, or simply dip in and out by reading one sub-section at a time. Highly recommended.

Jaw dropping landscape photography is this guy's bread and butter and in that respect this collection is even better than his first book Photography Essentials Waiting for the Light (Photography Essentials).

If that weren't enough to make budding photographers green with envy, he also turns out a mean portrait, some great wildlife shots plus a few epic infra-reds.

Though technique is covered, this is not just a book for photographers - anyone interested in travel and the spectacular beauty of the great outdoors will find much to enjoy here.

One small niggle which I commented on his last book - I don't like the larger photos being spread across two pages and would happily have paid an extra tenner for a larger format that prevented this.

An entertaining and informative book with superb photographs that show what can be achieved with a DSLR and patience/experience. Mr Noton has excelled once again and his easy readable style of imparting advice makes it a thoroughly enjoyable read. Having purchased both his DVDs and his previous book 'Waiting for the light' I wondered if I would be disappointed by this second book, but NO! I throughly recommend this book to anyone interested in travel and landscape photography. Can't wait for the next book.

I went to one of David's photo presentations in Winchester last year and was absolutely amazed by his superb landscape photographs from all points of the globe(both home and away), and I went straight to Amazon to buy his 'Waiting for the Light' book, which accompanied the presentation. It did not disappoint, it's well presented and is a superb record of the truly wonderful photographs that David had taken. This new book, 'Full Frame' is every bit as good with the photos grouped into specific international visits of David's. Well laid out, it's Highly Recommended if you like travel/landscape photography...and will show places you might already have visited (and photographed) in a whole new light...literally. It's a brilliant collection of photos.....and enough to make you put your camera away, and give up photography....it's that good, and I clearly haven't got David's commitment or patience to get/wait-for the perfect place/light/photo.

Full Frame is another quality book by David Noton.

For me this is the ideal type of photography book. It is not an A-Z "how to" book which tend to get a bit monotonous after you have read a few, and it is not a coffee table book which for me tend to gather dust on the coffee table and get looked at far too infrequently.

Full frame comprises 10 entertaining travel adventure stories each focussing on a specific aspect of travel/landscape photography in a unique location somewhere in the world. The stories are entertaining reading in their own right and interwoven with valuable technical tips to help you achieve the objective for the chapter. The accompanying photographs illustrate how David accomplished the objective and are inspiring to look at too.

All in all a great book which I see myself re-reading a number of times. Highly recommended.

I had this for Christmas, and it is brilliant and so inspiring. Seeing the lens aperture, speed, & ISO, used to create such a beautiful image, is really helpful. I reccomend this as a good read, and to keep by you for inspiration. I am now tempted to try "Infra Red".

I really want to like this book as I think David Noton is an excellent photographer but I'm still not convinced. One of my biggest gripes is the print quality, none of the pictures really seem to be sharp and certainly very few of the images leap out and grab you. Maybe I'm being too picky but in a book like this I think the quality of the printing is really important. I guess I'm not totally convinced about some of the photos either. I suppose the whole point of the book is about diversifying and photographing new things and not getting stuck in a rut, therefore it's inevitable that the photographs are not of the same quality as Mr. Noton's previous work but even so... For all of that the text is interesting and informative and I think it encapsulates many of the key aspects of being an exceptional photographer which there's no doubt David Noton is. He's also a very entertaining writer so the book is worth a look just don't have too higher expectations.

Having now read the book in entirety I think I was maybe being a little unfair. David Noton is an entertaining writer and there are some really useful tips and comments as he progresses through the book. Very much a book to read and contemplate rather than one to flick through and look at the pictures. I suppose I've generally found this to be a truth, the books that impress at first glance are often the ones that fail to reward when read in detail. The one exception I'd make to that rule is Tom Mackie's `Photos With Impact' which is both visually stunning and incredibly rewarding to read.
