3.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad book, but could be much better, 9 Oct. 2010
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wedding Photography: The Complete Guide (Hardcover)
I do not like to give low scores to books or works that have alot of effort in them, but to be honest I was slightly disapponted by the book with respect to all of the 5 star remarks.
The book has many pictures and alot of valuable information. It is divided in three parts: before, during and after the wedding (post production). The wedding part is divided in chapters for each part of the wedding and different types of shots during the wedding. What I found missing and consider a fundamental flaw is that none of the pictures show the technical details, like the type of lens used, aperture and speed, was it cropped? and when was the color balanced?, was flash used here?. On one side it is good that there are many picutres as it can be an inspiration, on the other I would have prefered fewer pictures and explanations as to why they were taken one way or the other. Also many of the comments are obvious or usless like: "Look for interesting viewpoints when shooting the choir" (shouldn't a good photographer do this reagrdless of what he is shooting?). Overall I feel that something is missing in the book, like a deeper level that will teach you the inner clockwork of that really GREAT wedding picture.
So this will be a good book for the very beginner, as a general reference book, but I would not suggest this book to a photographer that wants to start shooting weddings, or to anybody who wants to look deeper and learn how to be a wedding artist.
