16 of 17 people found the following review helpful By J. Austin on February 28, 2001
Format: Paperback
After reading several photo books, this was the one that finally let me take control of my camera and get away from all of the auto modes. The chapters on flash, for the first time, gave me an understanding of how flash works and how to manipulate it in both TTL and manual. Contains info on design and composition as well as approaching wildlife, but it was the exposure and flash info that made it an invaluable reference for me.

Joe has done a very good job in writing this book explaining the basics of exposure control in the field including some flash techniques. I find this book to be indispensable in my library. I am now reading through it the second time. The pictures in this book are all very inspirational and well taken. I certainly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in wildlife and nature photography.

Mr McDonald puts passion into every word of this book,its simply explained lessons are written in a provocative style that leaves you yearning for the next page.....
Its a "must have" book for anybody wanting to explore wildlife photography as a hobby or professionally, and just a great, easy reading book.Ive owned my copy 6 months and have already read it 3 times! Its well explained so even people with a basic knowledge of photography can put many of his "lessons" into practical use.I cant wait for his next book!

Format: Paperback
Joe McDonald's book covers a very wide range of wildlife photography. There are a lot of tips for the amateur but also a lot of info for serious photographers using professional equipment. The examples used to illustrate Joe's message are well chosen and also beautiful and inspiring to look at. It is difficult to imagine how you could get more or better material into a book of this size. Strongly recommended.

You can't go wrong with anything written by Joe McDonald. This book will allow your photography to grow and improve. Hos techniques are proven effective. His knowledge of photographing wild life is on par with peers such as Arthur Morris. He writes as if he is talking to you. His knowledge of both digital and film formats make it easy to understand. His knowledge of lighting in dioverse conditions is unsurpassed. I highly recommend this book.
