Beautifully put together book - Info and imagery,
This review is from: Digital Photography Masterclass: Advanced Photographic and Image-manipulation Techniques for Creating Perfect Pictures (Hardcover)
I found this book excellent. It was recommended by a friend and I have ended up buying it for several other people as a present.
It goes over just about everything and explains in an easy to understand way with many visually rich examples and little "projects" you can do. But it runs over concepts which means you can expand your knowledge much more. For example the concept of how to read light in a scene, and the benefits of a main directional light and/ or fill lights; both in a natural setting and studio. It explains these concepts so you can better critique your photography and improve it.
My level is amateur enthusiast (wannabe pro), so use RAW and do much post processing etc, and the book kept me well entertained without being too easy or jumping into complicated aspects of photography without explaining them first. I would say this most suits beginners that are keen to learn, intermediate especially and to lesser degree pros (although there's still some tricky stuff in there).
