Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—This well-designed, comprehensive guide tackles photography using the same user-friendly format as National Geographic for Kids. Topics covered include how to obtain the best shot, look through the lens, and select subjects, as well as equipment basics. The authors break the subject down into doable assignments that will help readers master this art. The colorful layout, with the yellow borders fans will recall from the magazine, makes the material clear and easy to follow, and there are plenty of visual examples and tips from experts and kid photographers. While beginners will find this thorough guide accessible, practiced photographers will also discover tips and technical information. VERDICT Anyone who takes photographs will find something of interest here.—Jessica Cline, New York Public Library

My family found this book to be very well put together, detailed and thorough. It's filled with before and after shots that offer visual explanations, tips and photographs from National Geographic pros, as well as assignments are featured throughout the book. Here's a link to our full video review:

Bought this as a companion to a pink canon camera as a bat mitzvah present. Excellent gift for a tween and an animal lover-I wanted to get her away from "screen time" and into a hobby she has shown some interest in and will help her get outdoors more.

This book is rated for kids younger than the reading comprehension. I don't know if this is a publishing error or an author error. The activities for the age is not appropriate nor is the camera ($589+ with attachments) displayed in the book. I would recommend a used camera, hand-me-down, or a camera from a pawn shop that if lost wouldn't put too much of a strain on the purchaser's pocket. Although, you do want to teach the child to be responsible with the camera.

This book uses terminology that a late middle-schooled child would use and comprehend. I have students I teach at the collegiate level who would have problems comprehending this text if photography was not their area of interest. I would suggest putting the book in front of a group of kids in various ages and see how many would read it, kept their interest, and for how long. Use that analysis to get your age-range. There weren't too many kid-centered pictures nor activities to keep the age group engaged in this particular book.

I think the book is a good book. Just not for the age advertised.
