Meh. Too basic.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mom's Little Book of Photo Tips (Hardcover)
I read through this book (or skimmed, mostly) in about 2 hours. It's just too basic in my opinion. It gives tips like, "Dress your children in basic patterns!" Oh really?! WOW! It also consistently advises using the flash on your camera, which is the most terrible, horrible, no-good idea. Nobody needs more Facebook pictures of a brightly-lit baby's face and a big shadow behind it. Do yourself a favor and learn to work with natural light.
Each page has a "tip" on it and elaborates a little with sample pictures, but what I was looking for was REAL tips on how to take great pictures. Some of them are so basic I rolled my eyes and most aren't very useful. In this batch of books I also purchased "Your Baby in Pictures" by Me Ra Koh and was completely blown away. Check that out if you're a new parent looking for some real meat-and-potatoes ideas and tips on taking pictures of your kid.
I agree, too, that the pictures seem really outdated for the copyright date. I suggest checking it out from the public library, reading through it, and returning it.
