1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
The principle of this book is "proper preparation prevents poor performance" and in it Anne McKinnell provides a step by step guide on how to put yourself in a position to take better photographs every time rather than just relying on "luck" to be in the right place at the right time.

If you want to increase your chances of taking killer photos then this book is highly recommended.

In this book Anne Mckinnell gives clear and concise advice on the full gamut of photography related issues in an easily assimilated style. Starting out with Composition and moving on through Exposure Anne then covers how to get the most out of different types of subject and light finishing with advice on how to reach an audience with one's images, all the while accompanied by stunning examples of her own work which are worth the price of the book in themselves. Very easy to read whilst providing a wealth of useful information and advice.
