Having enjoyed David's first book 'Waiting for the Light', I was looking forward to more of the same from 'Full Frame' and wasn't disappointed. Full Frame is broken down into ten different projects around the world, and each section is divided into smaller sub-sections. David uses one photograph in each sub-section and explains how it was taken, and often includes some additional nuggets of photographic or technical information, all in his friendly very readable style. This means that you can sit down and read through a very enjoyable book, or simply dip in and out by reading one sub-section at a time. Highly recommended.

Jaw dropping landscape photography is this guy's bread and butter and in that respect this collection is even better than his first book Photography Essentials Waiting for the Light (Photography Essentials).

If that weren't enough to make budding photographers green with envy, he also turns out a mean portrait, some great wildlife shots plus a few epic infra-reds.

Though technique is covered, this is not just a book for photographers - anyone interested in travel and the spectacular beauty of the great outdoors will find much to enjoy here.

One small niggle which I commented on his last book - I don't like the larger photos being spread across two pages and would happily have paid an extra tenner for a larger format that prevented this.

Full Frame is a photography travel book. I was interested in reading it because it covered places that I knew and also those I had not been to. David Norton is an enthusiastic writer and his work is very easy reading. The writing flows through the pages and the enthusiasm he has for his work shines through. The book worked for me because it provided me with interesting technical details that I wanted and also confirmed that I did not want to go to some of the places he visited. That might sound odd but I am very much a cold climate person. His writing and images emphasised why I did not want to go to some places on Earth. Having said that his images of the places I was interested in going to filled me with enthusiasm to either go there, or go there again, such is the impact of his work. I would say that this book will work for photographers of any ability and gives useful insights into trying something different for the first time and an idea as to what works and use of equipment. It is well worth reading and proved to me that you do not have to go to very exotic locations to achieve superb images.

I bought this book because it provided information and tips on the techniques and technical details used to take the photographs within. That is does but rapidly repeats itself. I soon got tired reading about shooting wide open with an expensive lens. His landscape photographs are stunning and worth examining for content and technique. However, many of his portraits are not up to this standard and his wildlife photos are average especially if you consider the expensive high-end lens he used.

I travel a lot and hoped to gain some useful tips but unfortunately I do not have the means or the time to travel independently, camping in the bush for three weeks at a time. So David's style of photography is more for those who can set their own itinerary when travelling. When you total up the cost of the travels in this book and add in the expensive fast lenses used, the cost of each published photograph is horrendous.

A book for looking through with some envy, but difficult for most of us to emulate. More like a diary of "What I did on my holidays..."

I love this book, not only for it's deliciously-composed photographs but for David Noton's narrative, he whisks us on ten journeys across the globe and, on each one invites us to stand beside him and watch as he plans, studies and finally executes that perfect shot. I recently went to one of his roadshows in Preston called "chasing the light", David has a refreshing outlook to the making of a photograph and has a way of describing all the ingredients that he expertly mixes together to form the images he produces. One thing of note, and something I have always strived to do, and do properly, is to "get it right in-camera" and to become master of your tools, inside of being a computer-drone of a slave to your camera, Photography is about getting out there, learning all the time, seeing the landscape, breathing the air and... chasing the light, it's not about sitting in front of a PC and spending countless hours on Photoshop because you couldn't be bothered learning the art of photography in the first place and thought you would correct all your mistakes afterwards. In an ever-accessible world of digital imagery, David takes us back to the days when producing stunning images took a hell of a lot of hard work and patience. Buy the book, go on the trip, you'll never come back down.

I really want to like this book as I think David Noton is an excellent photographer but I'm still not convinced. One of my biggest gripes is the print quality, none of the pictures really seem to be sharp and certainly very few of the images leap out and grab you. Maybe I'm being too picky but in a book like this I think the quality of the printing is really important. I guess I'm not totally convinced about some of the photos either. I suppose the whole point of the book is about diversifying and photographing new things and not getting stuck in a rut, therefore it's inevitable that the photographs are not of the same quality as Mr. Noton's previous work but even so... For all of that the text is interesting and informative and I think it encapsulates many of the key aspects of being an exceptional photographer which there's no doubt David Noton is. He's also a very entertaining writer so the book is worth a look just don't have too higher expectations.

Having now read the book in entirety I think I was maybe being a little unfair. David Noton is an entertaining writer and there are some really useful tips and comments as he progresses through the book. Very much a book to read and contemplate rather than one to flick through and look at the pictures. I suppose I've generally found this to be a truth, the books that impress at first glance are often the ones that fail to reward when read in detail. The one exception I'd make to that rule is Tom Mackie's `Photos With Impact' which is both visually stunning and incredibly rewarding to read.
