Lee obviously knows what he is talking about in this book, there is plenty to get your creative juices flowing, but the book suffers from being too short, 240 pages would have allowed for some bigger pictures (always a great asset to a book like this).

The design of this book somehow feels open and cramped at the same time, it really needed the extra space and some more detail on some of the subjects for instance Candid Camera gets 3 small images and 2 pages, this is a rich and very diverse subject which covers all ages and speaking of which where is the practical legal advice for taking Candids of children or in other countries, things that could land you in hot water!

Criticism aside, this is a good book to get started with and it's priced affordably so as long as you don't buy this thinking that it's the only book you'll ever read on Creative Photography, it is a good choice!

It's more a 3 and a half star rating than 3 though!

Competent enough run down on techniques for use with up to date digital photography.

Somehow, perhaps due to the relatively low number of really jaw-dropping photographs to inspire, I found this work to be a bit "by numbers."

'The A-Z of Creative Photography' is a nicely presented photography guide. Its not suitable for completely novice photographers but if you've got some knowledge of lenses, F-Stops and the like then it will offer some useful hints and advice. I've found it especially helpful when it comes to taking landscape shots; although it does cover portraits and other subjects. One for people who want to improve their photography but by no means a comprehensive 'how-to' guide.

Taking photographs has never been this easy, and yet to really get a great result, you need to know what equipment you need and how to achieve particular results, whether directly when taking the photo (with certain lenses) or through software (like photoshop).

This book delivers non-structured approach to the problem here the reader can dip in and out of the various areas and tackle specific problems as they occur.

To be fair (and hence a 4 * rating), not everyone will be able to use the top-end software suggested in this book and there are plenty of alternatives on the market (albeit with less functionality). The bottom line is that if you want to really get into digital photography, buying this book is only going to be the start of an ongoing investment. This book will prepare you for that!

I've found this book to be extremely useful as I learn how to take better pictures. The topics each have three or four pages devoted to them, so they don't go into great depth but cover the essentials. Because of this short topic length, Ive found that it's very convenient to dip in and out of the book everytime I have a problem or want to look at how to do something.

Very useful book, would recommend to any one who wants to take their photography to next level above just point and shoot picture taking.

This book has given me an improved technical knowledge of how to take a good photo. The book itself is simply written and split into subject areas and is split into various most popular subjects of photography such as Low Light Shooting, Perspective Photography, Environmental Portraits, Candid Camera (photographing people) and so on. No matter your experience with a camera, there is something here to inspire just about everyone. Recomended!
