It's certainly not a book you should purchase if in the UK and are looking for examples of portrait images to take inspiration from as they are classic American-style portrait shots, for example, a 12yr old in front of a fire place wearing a blue shirt, yellow tie, dark blue blazer with gold over-sized buttons and cream coloured trousers! ....picture a young Carlton off the Fresh Prince of Bel-air!
On the plus side there are some technical tips on lighting and equipment so I'm sure some will find it useful but (like many photography books) there are no information underneath each image displaying shutter speed, aperture and ISO which is annoying as it is useful to know sometimes.
On the whole the pro's don't outweigh the cons I'm afraid and this will be sold shortly, probably to someone in the Big Apple where it came from.
The writter strives to persuade the reader of his skills and infinite knowledge which I find annoying and unnecessary.
Then, there are areas whose message could be expressed in a single line, but there are numerous paragraphs written.
Some parts are just too technical to grasp and the message is completely lost. I just hate having to read a page over and over to get the point.
All this results in a reading that lacks pace and forces the reader to scan through pages to find just the info he really needs.
Quite a lot of information, but the way it's written leaves a lot to be desired...
