This is the first time I write a review after hundreds of purchases on Amazon, simply I feel I obliged to do so to warn people. I bought this book because of review I read for this product.
In the end, it's a disappointing experience. This book doesn't feel like books that I bought before, even the Kindle format ones, especially if this compared to photography books that I bought before.. Maybe because formatting.. I don't know for sure.
If you have been in Internet Marketing, you must know this jargon. Find topics that you are familiar with, or you know well, write it into a report or ebook, and then sell it in the internet. Unfortunately this book fits into that description.
- Only basic principles of posing and lighting. No further explanation, example of practice and pictures before and after applying the technique, no lighting diagram, etc. Positioning of lighting in portrait is very important, yet there is now further explanation and diagram on how to place flash/light to achieve Rembrandt lighting for example. Fortunately, I can find this explanation and information in the internet, of course for free. Lighting part of this book is a joke.
- Photography book will almost always have the Exif data on the pictures shown in the book. Speed, F stop, ISO, etc so that we can try to reproduce the setting, in the hope to reproduce the effect shown in the picture. This books simply doesn't have it. At all. I suspect it just uses stock photos? Maybe I am wrong.
If I can put negative star I would be happy to...
