I HATE reading manuals and how-to guides. Technical jargon goes in one ear and out the other for me. But the way Tamara Lackey writes is so conversational, humorous and just fun that I WANTED to read the next page. I usually dread these types of books, but I have read this one 4 or 5 times. I now shoot on manual mode (go me!). I can honestly say that after reading Tamara's book, otherwise esoteric technical concepts "clicked" for me (pun intended) and I am fairly well-versed in the basics of photography.

Nice intro book. I expected a little more depth but that was probably my fault. Good for beginners. Ms Lackey is entertaining as a writer and presenter and has many helpful techniques especially for people photography

Good Book and it includes a DVD. I was looking for pointers in taking pics of my Grandkids to be used in Scrapbooking.
