About the Author
Marc Silber is an award-winning professional video producer, photographer, and photography educator who has been successfully working in the field for decades. Marc combines his passion for the visual art of photography with his love of life. He started out learning darkroom skills and the basics of photography at the legendary Peninsula School in Menlo Park, CA, in the �60s, and moved on to hone his skills to professional standards at the famed San Francisco Art Institute, one of the oldest and most prestigious schools of higher education in art and photography in the United States. Marc has been an educator since then as well; he began his teaching career at the age of 19 at the National Outdoor Leadership School, teaching mountaineering. When teaching a life-or-death subject such as mountaineering, one learns how to make sure the students understand the material; when Marc moved into teaching photography in workshops all over the country, he became renowned as an engaging and helpful speaker and coach, as his greatest joy comes from helping others. More recently, Marc has embraced the digital age with a highly popular YouTube show called �Advancing Your Photography,� which has won several Telly Awards and other recognition for his work there. This book is a distillation of all the pro tips and wisdom in the YouTube series, in a format you can take with you and refer to constantly when you are out taking your photographs.

Also, the image examples in this book are tiny and very weak at best. For comparison, see Bruce Barnbaum's recently updated The Art of Photography if you want to see superb example reproductions, as well as detailed explanations of image processing in both color and black and white. These (both images and detailed processing steps) do not exist in AYP. In summary, this slight book will advance no one's photography and I would suggest that you turn elsewhere to learn more about the art. A very disappointing effort.
I opened this book right to a diagram that showed me something I hadn't understood before. Sweet.
Marc Silber's desire is for his handbook to help a photographer advance whether beginner, intermediate or advanced.
The color quality of the photos used as examples are quite good which for some reason I expected less in a smaller format book made to be carried with you on your photo expeditions as modest or grand as you chose them to be.
A unique well thought out approach!
These photography tips are so easy to understand and apply. I appreciate getting them from a professional photography master. I keep it in my photo bag. Great for beginners and advanced alike.
