Chandoha is a master photographer who for decades has specialized in animal pictures. The most important thing in photography, he says, is an active mindthe photographer should read a lot, study many paintings and photos, and watch the looks and habits of dogs, cats, and creatures on the farm, in the wild and at the zoo. All this, the author maintains, helps one visualize picture ideas beforehand and leads to good results. Chandoha sustains this view in chapters on equipment, lighting, specific shooting techniques and, most important, on handling animal "models." Charming and informative first-person anecdotes, as well as revealing suggestions for marketing successful photos, help make this a first-class learning guide by the top expert in his field.
