5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended, 19 Jun 2002
Travel Photography is an innacurate title. This book is a fantastic guide to beginners and intermediate photographers with a focus given through examples of travel photography. To describe it as Travel Photography is a bit restrictive. It would benefit anyone whether you're trekking in Nepal or sitting in a chip shop in Battersea.
All aspects of photography from basic to quite advanced techniques are covered in a very readable and understandable form. There is no effort on the readers behalf to comprehend what is being explained. Chapter after chapter seem to fall into place.
All photographs are coupled with complete discriptions of how the images were made. Film type, apeture, shutter speed, filters etc.
By the end of the book (which I read cover to cover in three days) you have a thorough understanding of the tools and techniques of photography.
The book itself is well produced. Good quality prints, clean layout and easy to navigate. Its size also means it could fit into a decent sized camera bag as a constant reference.
If you buy one book on photography make it this one.
