A book written by a truly great photographer,
This review is from: 100 Ways to Take Better Nature and Wildlife Photographs (Hardcover)
Sadly, many books on photography appear to be written by people whose efforts as a photographer don't match their writing abilities!
Before buying books on photography I always take a look at a range of images the author has written - and very often I don't rate them as much better photographers than myself.Not so with Guy Edwardes. It was after taking a look at his images on the web that I was persuaded to buy his first book and I wasn't dissapointed - it's still one of the few books I still dip into frequently.
This latest offering is equally impressive. The amount of information supplied about each image makes it a useful book for both the beginner and the professional photographer. I particularly like the idea of each chapter containing one 'tip' - a review of the index is a useful quick reminder of the skills you will learn in this book.
It covers the whole range of nature photography from birds in flight to macro photography and is a very welcome addition to my bookshelf. Every image from this clearly talented photographer deserves 5 stars.
