Product description

Review

""Read This If You Want to Take Great Photographs" is the perfect quick reference for photographers to toss in their camera bag for a bit of inspiration and reminder of the basics." - "GeekDad" --GeekDad

"If you want really solid advice on how to 'see' great images unfold in front of you, then this should be on your wish list by now." - Digital SLR Photography "An easy-to-follow guide to how to take a decent photo, this systematic and at times humorous book introduces you to everything from basic camera functions, such as aperture and exposure, to more nebulous ideas about the 'perfection of imperfection', using Robert Capa's blurry D-Day landing shots as an example. Wonderfully illustrated throughout." - Royal Photographic Society "Henry Carroll's superb new book takes some beating, thanks to its combination of clear, no-nonsense tips, and iconic images from some of the greatest photographers of the 20th century." - Photography Week --Photography Week

This book taught me more, in 10 minutes and as many words, than any any other book on photography. I was feeling a bit fed up that I couldn't get my shiny new compact system camera to do what I wanted it to. Carroll's easy writing style, great graphics and the photographs helped me to understand what I needed to do. I would recommend it to anyone. I'm smiling again and I have some great photographs! I've also invested in another lens and I'm confident that I've made the right choice because I now understand!

This book is just awesome. It's really concisely and clear. Each two page fold outlines an individual technique or tip very concisely and then has a pro photo to demonstrate the point. It's a very clever way of explaining photography. I've done a day long course and already read one "how to take good photos" book, but this book was much better at bringing everything together in a very understandable form you actually remember when you start using your camera.

Absolutely loved the simplicity , the humour and the images in this book! So much so I went and bought the other two books that followed after this one. Great read. I'll recommend to anyone that wants to learn how to use their DLSR and want to break some rules in photography.
