▲ Mr. Woolf does a good job of explaining the details of image quality, and how it relates to number of pixels. Similarly, he discusses the technical details about aperture settings and exposure.
▲ The lighting section is especially good. The book describes many of the mistakes that beginners make, and how to rectify them. Hint: Don't miss the "put the napkin over the flash" tip.
▲ I especially liked the "15 Hacks" sections right at the beginning. I did not know about the important of indirect lighting versus direct lighting. I bet a lot of readers will make that same mistake.
After the "15 Hacks" comes the Introduction. Having the Intro come after another section confused me; in fact, I thought at first the 15 hacks might be the entire book. Of course, there is much more to the book than the initial 15 hacks section.
√ Nice book--good intro for a beginner; probably too basic for more advanced photographers. Recommend!
♫ A Review by Chris Lawson
Let me just say, I'm glad it was only $2.99! There is a lot of rambling by the author in this book (a lot of which was useless information and could have been cut out!) Wouldn't be so bad if it was entertaining ramblings, but it's not. In addition, there are a lot of spelling errors in this book. This doesn't bother me in day-to-day life because I'm not perfect and I don't expect others to be perfect. But it shouldn't be this bad in published works that should have been proofed ahead of time. I can see how one or two could slip through the cracks, no big deal, but it became slightly annoying (only because I was frustrated that I wasted money. Sorry, just being honest.) I normally wouldn't even add something so minor to a review but just putting it out there.
Now, I gave it two stars instead of just one because IF you are brand new, have done no research on your own, and just starting out with your DSLR camera, then you might get a basic understanding from this book. But there is no great revelation here that I haven't already read online for free.
