I've recently been turned on to books published by Focal Press (a division of Elsevier). As a company, Focal Press has been very good to work with, and their selection of photography books is solid. This review will cover the Michelle Turner book "The Wedding Photography Field Guide". I'm still in the information gathering stages of this aspect of the photography world, but I can approach this review with a brief critical analysis. Photography is best learned by doing, and I know that I have much doing to do. Since time is a limiting factor, I need to review the fundamental concepts of this subject before venturing out into actually photographing weddings. I fully intend to assist an established wedding photographer, as there is much to learn by just watching what they do, and then eventually following their lead. A wedding is a serious event that cannot be replicated, and preparing for the nuances of what can occur is extremely important. The stress of having just one chance to do it right can be immense, but this field guide has a very thorough review of all the basics that go into photographing a wedding, and can help a determined photographer to better approach this medium.

I recently acquired several books on wedding photography to review before beginning the apprentice process, and this book has everything one will need to get started, at a very affordable price. This book is physically smaller than a regular text book, but is well organized into categories that are logical (gear, preparation, event day, post production), and provides quality information that is presented in a very approachable manner. The material is easy to follow, and can be absorbed by photographers of any level.

More About the Author

Upon hiring Michelle Turner to photograph you, two rather delightful things are soon to happen: You'll certainly come away with an album full of emotionally acute photographs -- but it's going to be delivered in a style that's also funky and fashionable. For Michelle, those aren't contradictory means to an end, it's simply the essence of her technique. Peek inside her Maine studio, or follow her to the destinations she shoots all over the world, and you'll find her crafting colorful, even occasionally grungy portraiture that is uniquely Michelle's. But it's how she manages to imbue both her shots and your experience with a fun, laidback vibe that will have you connecting with her in an entirely familiar, friendly way.

Michelle is both a coveted national speaker and author and has published two books about fashionable wedding photography. She is an alumna of Georgetown University and worked on her Master's at Dartmouth. She currently resides in Maine in the summer and spends most of the winter photographing weddings in Mexico and Central America.

Michelle's work has appeared in many regional, national, and international publications.
