Uninspiring, 5 Jan. 2005
I am a firm believer that photographic manuals and guides may be judged(at least in part) by their covers and surely any author without the prowess to design a decent cover should not be permitted to continue any further. There are so many breathtakingly good books on landscape photography that it's a wonder this one ever made it into publication.
It seems to have been thrown together without any thought towards writing style, layout or even aesthetic appearance and many of the photos in this book are simply abominable, especially considering Hedgecoe's repected status as a photographic tutor. Even the technical information is sparse and often frustratingly obvious to the point of being patronising for anyone who has ever held a camera. Stay well away from Hedgecoe's range of books, this man must be stopped!
