This book is well composed and laidout with various sections on how to take that particular subject. It goes from explaining the basic on most new cameras and how to use them. It then moves on into how to take various photo's in a wide diversaty of subjects and events. I would recommend this book to people who like photography and are just starting out like myself.

This is an amazing book for the 'layperson' of photography. It gives an immense amount of information to those of us who think that we should just look through the viewfinder and click the button. The pictures in this book are breathtaking and Tom Ang gives us a huge variety of topics or subjects on which to photograph and how to achieve the best photo. For an amateur photographer, this book is a huge help to me.

This book is crammed full of pictures and guidance on how to get the most out of your camera. What I did not realise is that it seems to be geared towards compact digitals, wheras I was looking for a much more technical guide for a Digital SLR.

That said, I have found it a great help and a visual delight, with lots of inspirational shots to get the creative process kicked-off. Thanks Tom!

Packed full of tips for taking better photographs, this book is ideal for the beginner and also the more experienced photographer. The text is brief but to the point and backed up with plenty of colour photo examples.My only small gripe is that it is a large book and so you cannot take it with you for reference in the field.

This book explains, in everyday language, exactly as the title says - how to photograph just about everything. It is aimed at beginner level with just the right amount of technical information for the more advanced photographer. A good buy.

This is exactly what I was looking for, a book which taught me the basics then applied them to different situations. I feel a lot more confident playing around with the settings on my camera and my photography has improved as a result. I like the way he has taken a photograph for each subject and then explained the settings on the right hand side. After reading the first two chapters I was able to cover up the settings, look at the photograph and predict what he had used. In no time at all I was grasping the logic and gaining confidence. A lovely book for beginners. I cannot recommend it highly enough. I also like the fact that he has explained commonly made errors in composition and lighting and illustrated the flawed results on the same page. I am starting to think about composition in a new way too. My photography skills were in a rut, this book has changed that.

This is an amazing book with lots of illustrations inside. This book mostly talks about photography from the artistic point of view, however I saw some reviewers expected to see technical contents. In my opinion this book does its job in a way it was supposed to do. Writer says how the pictures have been taken alongside artistic points and some technical points.

Totally, a valuable book with great illustrations.

This book has really simple tips, for the practising photographer, or the complete novice, like my mum! She has used it frequently as it gives simple, clear advice on loads of aspects of photography.

The first thing that strikes you about this general photography book by Tom Ang is the high quality photography and quality feel of the book itself. It is easy to read, mainly because there aren't that many words on each page!. This is essentially a book for beginner to intermediate photographers, looking for general tips and advice. You wont find technical discussions of aperture, depth of field or ISO here - in fact a digital SLR is probably not even required, as most of the advice would work for a good quality 'point & shoot' camera. What it does give you is advice on taking photos of most likely absolutely everything you can think of, that is certainly no exaggeration.
Starting with photography and camera basics, before moving on to large sections by subject, the book is cover to cover with good quality photos illustrating each bit of advice.
People, Landscapes, Animals, Architecture and Events are covered in depth, among others. Help with such varied artistic techniques such as light trails, kirlian photography, reflection, space photography, and considering textures and patterns is also presented, with even pages on promoting a business, selling on ebay, and photos to help sell your car!.
Overall, this is not a book which covers anything in any depth, and as such is mainly for beginners as mentioned before. It is however cover to cover with great photos and small snippets of advice on taking pictures of absolutely everything. As a beginners source book and inspiration for every kind of situation or subject imaginable, it is probably in a league of its own, and there are few photographers that wouldn't learn at least something from this book.
