About the Author
Michael Freeman, professional photographer and best-selling author, was born in England in 1945, took a Masters in Geography at Brasenose College, Oxford University, and then worked in advertising in London for six years. In 1971 he made the life-changing decision to travel up the Amazon with two secondhand cameras, and when Time-Life used many of the pictures he came back with, he embarked on a full-time photographic career.
Since then, working for clients that include all the world's major magazines, most notably the Smithsonian Magazine (for which he has shot more than 40 stories over 30 years), Freeman's reputation as one of the world's leading reportage photographers has been consolidated. Of his many books, which have sold over 4 million copies worldwide, more than 60 titles are on the practice of photography. For this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture.
Freeman's books on photography have been translated into 27 languages.

Some useful suggestion, some idea to start, a situation slideshow, nothing more, nothing less.
Alas, this book isn't it. Instead the entire book is dedicated at how to compose a picture and little else. It is also interspersed with quotes from a number of of people, none of which I felt had any great relevance to the actual subject matter of the book.
A lot of the pictures weren't that great, in my opinion, and the reproduction quality wasn't good. There was no technical data whatsoever, such as type of lens,aperture etc. which would have given the book at least some point.
This book says it is for serious digital photographers. No. This is for the complete beginner who has no idea about photography. A complete waste of money.
It got one star because I had to give it.
The entire book seemed like the author was just wallowing for the fun of it.
