While this book covers a lot of photography basics, I have found lots of useful and interesting information nuggets sprinkled through the text.

Some good ideas probably more valuable to the intermediate photographer looking to try something new.

Not really a tutorial type of book, more to inspire the imagination, but that's fine. Some good ideas probably more valuable to the intermediate photographer looking to try something new. There are some good tips sprinkled throughout of value to anyone. I hope this doesn't come off as a negative review, because its not, in fact I would purchase it again and recommend it to anyone looking to try something new and exotic.

While this book covers a lot of photography basics, I have found lots of useful and interesting information nuggets sprinkled through the text. There are a lot of good ideas about ways to create different styles of photos using techniques that, for most people, are outside the box. Well written, excellent photos, up to date information.
Highly recommended.

I bought this on a whim and it has been enjoyable to look through. Mostly just a collection of interesting photos, most with interesting exposures. Some were rather boring and really rather plain, but other examples are technically very nice. Not much in the way of explanations but gives enough info to inspire and lead you in the right direction.

One of the most important aspects of taking great photos is, of course, exposure. (Many would argue that it's the most important thing.) For those who understand the basics, a next great step is "Extreme Exposure" by David Nightingale from Amphoto Books. Nightingale's examples are indeed extreme as he shows you how to create photos that defy the naked eye. Working with time exposures, the use of ultra long and short shutter speeds and both ultra wide and small apertures, show the user how to obtain the virtually impossible shots in low light or those that require an extreme dynamic range. The results will amaze the average user.
