Guy Edwardes is an outstanding photographer, who has a talent for transporting atmospheric scenes into your living room. Most of the scenes are shot in England and Scotland, although a handful from Scandinavia and USA add diversity to his portfolio. Each photograph is accompanied by text to illustrate a theme such as composition, exposure or depth of field.
Paradoxically, it's the excellence of the images that makes this book rather less useful as an educational resource. Rather than showing how average images can be improved, Edwardes simply provides us with the exemplary image. To be fair, the text is helpful, even if it does in places tend to state the obvious. I have no problem with photographers showcasing their talent (and Edwardes has plenty of it), but this was not the book I expected.
