5.0 out of 5 stars Good product, 15 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It feels as it may snap at any moment, but is actually quite strong. I truly enjoy using the clips to make a carry handle. I only wish it had a holder for additional memory cards

3.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't get into it, 24 Sept. 2012
I hoped for some inspiration from this book, but it was too spiritual. Understanding that 'Tao' is the key word in the title, it offers very little in technical aspects and too much of "be the camera". Most of the content is other photographer's photos and quotes and offers very little advice that you can't find in any art book.
It's probably me, but the quotes from Chuag-Tzu just don't translate into photography. First quote " Leap into boundless and make it your home".....Ok. Another; "Superiors must adopt inaction and make the world work for them; inferiors must adopt action and work for the world"
I think you get my point.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much theory, too much branding., 24 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I hoped for more guidance on which type of papers work best for different uses/prints, but just saw long technical explanations on what the papers are composed of. Certainly didn't need the photo editing points either.
It seems that the authors have mainly used Epson printers and dabbled with HP because they were basically the only printers they referred to. Not much help.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected, 13 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was extremely dry and and difficult read. I had flashbacks of highschool text books. It was mostly theory and did not make me want to try different lighting techniques.
This is the second book from Amherst Media that proved disappointing. I will be sure to avoid their publications in the future

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good read, 1 Mar. 2008
This review is from: The Lake House (Paperback)
I have read a good number of books from JP and have enjoyed all them until 'The Lakehouse'. It seemed to be a story written by a child and re-written for adult fiction. The evil scientist, children being chased by everyone who have been genetically crossed with birds and a failed love story that we're not really sure why. Let's stay with Alex Cross and forget this one was ever penned

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was hoping for, 3 Feb. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I guess my expectations of this book were miscalculated. Usually when a book is called a 'field guide' it will offer suggestions and solutions to situations "in the field". Instead, this book tells you what you need in the field. The author feels no need to give any data on shots displayed (eg. shutter speed and exposure) because he feels he will not duplicate the photo. Mr Shaw is also a film shooter and devotes most of his equipment advice on film based gear. He has some excellent images in the book that he's proud to say have not been altered by image editing software, only listing the camera, lens and film used which again does not help the reader or further his photographic education. A disappointment.

Perception and Imaging: Photography--A Way of Seeing

4.0 out of 5 stars Great theory, 18 Dec. 2007
This book is basically a course text. There are excercises and answer keys. The theory is very much related to photography as well as many visual arts. It's very useful for someone who has trouble getting their image just right and needs to know what is missing or where an image should lead. Many great artist's quotes are on every page.
I would recommend it to anyone who is tired of photo books that just show shots of exotic lands and people and try to tell you that it's all about good composition and lighting. This book explains how to see good composition and how lighting makes an image interesting.
Dry, but once studied it will open your eyes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent beginner book, 17 Sept. 2007
This book covers a quite a bit. The information is clear and not too technical. I feel a little too much was dedicated to vacation weddings, but that's what the author specializes in. All in all a good read with very good pointers

2.0 out of 5 stars Any Market? No., 17 Sept. 2007
Was disappointed to see this book limited to team, class and portrait photos, with a small portion for weddings. I guess I was expecting more along the lines of freelance photography.
