This book really is a stunning book, inside and out. The outside of the book is well designed and looks great. The colours are vibrant and it looks great on the bookshelf. The inside of the book is well laid out with fantastic photographs, and clear and concise text that is easy to read. It's printed on thick glossy paper and the colour reproduction is excellent.
The information contained in this book is very in depth and it starts from the basics, and advances to the more intermediate level as you get further into the book. The book covers the basics of ISO, aperture (f-stop), shutter speed, exposure, accessories, flash, lighting, composition, RAW, JPEG, editing, photoshop, printing and much more. It really is a complete guide to photography. A beginner could pick this up, read it, and come away with a complete understanding of the basics of photography.
This book helps you take your photos from basic snapshots to professional looking print quality photos. The authors are very humble and there is no bragging about their achievements throughout the book, only a small part at the end. They are clearly very skilled as the photographs, and the in depth training they give you are both fantastic.
The book is very easy to read, it's not too heavy and it's accompanied by lots of really inspirational pictures. The authors don't assume your skill level at all, you could know nothing about photography and come away happy here. This book is perfect, both for beginners or the more advanced as it's a great reference book.
I couldn't recommend this beautiful, well written book enough.
