5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for the new T3i owner, July 1, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Canon EOS Rebel T3i / 600D: From Snapshots to Great Shots (Paperback)
Revell does an excellent job of getting you up-to-speed on the T3i.

His writing's clear, book is well-organized, and illustrations are excellent - showcasing Revell's own photography in ways that clearly illustrate the points he's making.

Revell's a professional photographer, but he takes a very down to earth approach. He clearly explains the basics of the camera - and of photography. He doesn't assume you already know basic concepts. Instead, he quickly explains things, then gets you ready to move up a level.

A very good book for quickly getting you oriented to the T3i, then moving forward to understanding and creating better photographs.

Thanks for pointing out that this author doesn't assume that the reader already knows the basics of photography. It sounds like he is a good teacher as well as a good photographer. That's important. Thanks for your simple and to-the-point review.

Revell has truly impressed me as both an author and photographer. And guess what? Lucky me. He's coming to San Francisco in a couple of weeks to give a workshop! I signed up the moment I heard he was coming. Really looking forward to it.
