It is written in an enjoyable, conversational style which encourages you to continually turn another page. The author's comments serve to add context to the already stunning photography as well as the occasional touch of humour. If you like the natural world, enjoy photography or simply enjoy seeing the work of a true master - First Light is a must for your bookshelf.
Oh, OK, if you must. If you have opened it, you will have noticed that these are some of the most stunning landscape photographs you are ever likely to see in your lifetime, and, yes, I could practise photography for hundreds of years and still not be as good as this. Joe Cornish is generous with his knowledge, though, he shares his approach, his thinking, the technical details. It won't help, though, we gaze in wonder at the work of a master photographer. Still, he is an inspiration, and he gives us something to aim at. If we don't know what we are aiming at how can we hope to improve, right? Aim at producing better photographs than Joe, and even if you miss you will do better from the trying. That's my plan, anyway.
