Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome book Breaks down info into easy to understand sections, and clear explanations. I would recommend this book for those new to photography as well as someone who is more familiar, but wanting to further their knowledge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You definitely want this in your resource library Great book. Well written and informative. Goes beyond basics and brings you into next levels. Definitely a good book to read and to own for future referencing and/or just rereading to sharpen your skills. It was mentioned numerous times in a forum I belong to as being an excellent book to buy. So I eventually bought it after reading a copy from a local library and knew I wanted my own copy. Bought it from B&H.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Having a copy. Well Worth Reading Although I have two other copies of this same book in its earlier editions, I purchased this to see what was different, what was improved and what the new content was. I am very pleased so far. Although I have been involved for 50 years, I still find it possible to learn something new with each new version. Never too old, or too set in my ways to learn something. This is a book every photographer should have and should read.
