► WHY YOU SHOULD BUY THIS BOOK ◄
The author speaks from experience, and gives a ton of useful ideas. Let his experience save you a lot of trouble. Are you an expert on perspective? How 'bout how to properly do "Framing?" Do you know what the "Composition Triangle" is? If not, get this book and get started!
► TOP 3 THINGS I LIKED ◄
♦ Good illustrations, such as the "Use the rule of Thirds" artwork.
♦ Good discussion of the "Exposure Triangle" of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO.
♦ Nice chart showing the "reciprocity" principle. I had never seen this.
► ANY SPECIAL FEATURES ◄
Yes! There is a surprising bonus--"Building a Personal Survival Kit." The author calls this your "very cheap, one-time purchase insurance policy." Some really good ideas for what to store.
► SUMMARY ◄
√ All in all, a really useful book, with lots of great ideas! Recommend!
♫ A Review by Chris Lawson
Note: I do not know the author of this book, and no one requested I write this review.
Some minor quibbles: I read the book on a 7 inch Google Nexus tablet, and because of the smaller screen size (compared to a computer monitor, for example), some of the photographic examples were too small to be of much use, particularly when it comes to dealing with focusing or noise. On a seven inch tablet, the amount of noise on an images taken with a low ISO setting, for example, looks about the same as the amount of noise at a high ISO setting. An example at 100% crop might help in this instance. Reading the book on a larger screen would also help.
Finally, the section on post-processing is helpful insofar as it gets beginners starting to think about how to treat their out-of-camera images as a starting point rather than an end result.Read more ›
He covers most areas required to survive with a DSLR and get good photos.
Would have liked more information in some areas but adequately covered.
The author even throws in an extra bonus of a real life survival kit which is now in my pack.
