This book gives you lessons on various techniques which in total add up to about 17 hours of practical exercises. The lessons take you from choosing camera, how to hold them steady, taking pictures, using flash etc through to subjects such as people, landscapes, interiors and moving objects.
A good beginners book, with good practical advice and projects.

Which means I was quite disappointed with this book, although I should have checked the publication date before I started it. I've gotten more interested in photography recently, having finally embraced flickr as a means for photo sharing, and was looking for something to help me understand what makes one picture better than another, other than the simple gut feeling you get by comparing two. I came away with some new knowledge from this book in that regard, however, including issues of lighting, framing (especially with the use of the zoom lens), and composition. Even in these areas, though, I would have liked even more examples and more discussion of how the examples illustrated his point. This is an extremely short book (less than 100 pages), and might be useful to introduce you to some photo concepts, but as for actually learning photography in a weekend, I don't think this is the right teacher.
