A Good Blog Does Not Make a Good Photography Book
on August 21, 2011
Seriously, this book is provides very little content for anyone trying to advance their own photography skills.
"Will also teach you how to create your own compelling photographic images - one click at a time" explain how this book teaches anything....at all.
This is an excerpt on Portraiture Lighting: "Every photographer knows that light is everything. Lighting can turn the most ordinary things into magic, elevate them to a kind of poetry. In the right light, everyone looks more beautiful, more true. Lighting can make or break a portrait. The less harsh the lighting (the few the shadows), the softer the face will look and the smoother the skin will appear. Lighting can transform a simple snapshot into an artful portrait."
That is pretty much the extent of the kind of information available to create your own compelling photographic image.
