Full-color throughout, Miotke's book will take you from "Don't Get Too Close" to what lens compression is and how it affects your images. He explains why you should or would need a tripod, when to turn on the flash, what focal length is, composition, framing, and more. For a beginner, this is the book I would recommend to get you started. If you have a good grasp of the basics, this is NOT the book for you.
My wife, after the first section of the book (which she read in 1 sitting while on the plane for our honeymoon), became 300% better at creating beautiful photographs.
The book is concise but to the point, packs a lot information without getting too technical, and is very very easy to understand.
Highly recommended for folks who do not know what aperture is or for folks with a point and shoot who just want to learn how to take better photos.
So maybe this book just didn't fit what I looking for and I need to find one that covers how to operate and take better pictures with a dSLR specifically. but based on the reviews, I really was expecting something much more helpful.
