OK for beginners., 11 Oct 2007
This book is very well presented with a consistent easy to follow layout.
This book really does cover almost every photographic subject you could wish to shoot. Some of the illustrations are amazing and has some nice compositional suggestions.
On the downside, it has very little detail on the technicalities of shooting these subjects and for the enthusiast photographer, it will just state the obvious over and over again.
Digital SLR users are probably better off with a DSLR specific book, as this book mostly demonstrates photographing with a compact camera and it's various preset shooting modes (i.e Landscape mode).
For someone new to the joys of creative photography this book is a perfect starting point. The enthusiast however may be better off looking elsewhere.
