Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Its easy to go through a lot of photography books these days that specialise in only a certain type of photography, especially digital and 35mm. Though this particular book does not seek to point out the pros and cons but instead concentrates upon the generation of high-standard photos.
Lee Frost is an excellent writer with regards to providing examples as well as describing how to achieve certain results, to boost this he is an outstanding photographer, though he can relate to the amateur by explaining specifically how he achieved the final piece. He goes into a lot of detail about filter types and what situations they best work in, as well as the pros and cons of certain camera and lense types.
The book is divided into two sections. The first concentrates upon the practical aspects of photography, such as focusing in difficult conditions as well as scene composure etc. The second section looks at different types of photography, such as portraits and landscapes and goes into details about the best kinds of films to use as well as shutter speeds etc.
One way or the other this is a book filled with ideas, with many details that I have since found invaluable. There probably is not a better book than this for going into high detail about a broad range of subjects.

This is a definate must for anybody who is looking to get into amateur SLR photography. The book does not specialise in 35mm or digital photography but instead concentrates upon techniques and methods to produce high-standard photographs. There is a lot of information on equipment that can add significantly to your work as well as tips upon suitable mediums. As always the examples that Lee Frost utilises are highly useful in demonstrating his point.
Excellent.

The author describes himself as someone who read many books, but with noone book really telling him what he really wanted to know aboutphotography. I am not as well read as he, but in my search of bookshopsand libraries I have come to understand what he means. He wrote this book(and others) based on what he was looking for many years ago, and havingread it I think he has achieved his goal; it is certainly the book I waslooking for. It is easy to read, yet covers every aspect of creativephotography from flash techniques, composition, exposure, and subjectmatter. The book is inspirational, and worth reading if only to admire thepictures that are used to illustrate each point that he makes.
