3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing at first glance, but worth a second view
I was slightly disappointed in seeing this book, it is much smaller than I imagined and the quality of the photographs inside is not great. A quick glance through and some of the tips are fairly obvious and more like common sense. That said the book warrants a more in-depth read to find the real gems hidden inside
That said and the size makes more sense because this...

4.0 out of 5 stars Overview of the most important photo tips that will help you instantly improve your photographic skills, 24 Dec 2013
"Lonely Planet's Best Ever Photography Tips" by Richard l'Anson is well done book full of photography tips that can help you becoming a better photographer instead of buying a new camera.

The long-known fact is that you can learn to photograph and impress your audience even if you have equipment that is almost worthless, while on the other hand the most advanced equipment in the hands of someone who doesn't know won't make great pictures, but the picture will be even worse than if you took them with a pocket camera.

It's often amazing how the simplest advices that can be learned about lighting, object positioning, backlight, time of day in which the photographs are looking best, aperture and some other, the vast majority of people don't know, although it would take them about ten minutes to learn them - as result their photos would be improved, literally immediately.
In this sense publication of this nicely designed, informative and handy booklet that can be read once and then always carry with you to be reminded is great.
The author on one place gathered the most important information that will help you making better photographs and learn to make better use of equipment that is at your disposal.

He will advise you about choosing correct equipment and adequate accessories such as lens and tripods, introduce to the terms of exposure, ISO and depth of field, teach you how to avoid blur and choose right file format for you, how to position your objects following the rule of thirds.
What I especially liked about this book was author's emphasis that good photographers are becoming good due to constant practice.

And for all these reasons, especially if you don't already have one of similar books, "Lonely Planet's Best Ever Photography Tips" can be fully recommended - at one place, on its just over 150 pages it provides an overview of the most important photo tips that will help you instantly improve your photographic skills.

Of course, don't expect to immediately become a pro, but for that you don't need great equipment, but lots and lots of practice.

I was slightly disappointed in seeing this book, it is much smaller than I imagined and the quality of the photographs inside is not great. A quick glance through and some of the tips are fairly obvious and more like common sense. That said the book warrants a more in-depth read to find the real gems hidden inside
That said and the size makes more sense because this is a book that you can put in your pocket and take with you as well as your camera and if in doubt look up those titbits of information that you haven't committed to memory yet.

A small and well put together camera tips book, with some brilliant glove trotting photo's, which have NO exif data at all, which themselves would help travellers no end.
The tips are ok but nothing a google search wouldn't reveal. The saving grace is the price, making it an ideal cheapie for a total newbie with no photography experience.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good to flick through, nothing very informative, 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It has some handy tips and is nicely presented but no tips that are radically going to improve the photos you take - unless you've never ever given any thought to things like where the sun is and what might be an interesting composition.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Really liked this little book - it's small and easy to slip into a pocket (or your camera bag). Ten 'rules' of photography, and 45 other tips, along with some wonderful photographs.

Great for beginners to get the basics.

This wasn't what I expected, disappointingly small and the images are not that great, it's a shame but maybe I should have looked closer at the details.
