Rick takes great photos but I expected more HOW TOs & specific examples than appeared in the book. The more detail info the more I like it and am able to learn by it.

I expected a lot from this book... I own several of Rick Sammon's photography books and have learned a lot reading them and referring back to them. But this one was a huge disappointment to me. I expected meat, but what I got was fluff. While the photos are generally beautiful and well-executed, and there are a few (too few!) concrete tips to try yourself, much of the book was like reading a long magazine article. I would have liked information such as "I shot this picture using such and such a lens, set at aperture X and exposure Y, because..." I suggest this is more a beginner's book designed to inspire rather than one for anyone who is looking for real ways to improve their photographic techniques and skills.

All the adjectives in the title are applicable to the book: Digital. Field. Quick. Great. Especially great.

I checked this out from the library initially and then bought my own copy.

I love the way Rick Sammon makes difficult concepts clear. He really is good at explaining things in a lighthearted manner. Enjoyable reading as well as informative.
