Boyd's book approaches photography as I am trying to approach it. He regards the use of a photo editing program as an essential part of the photographic process. I have found Photoshop to be a significant element in my learning to transcend snapshots. Photoshop enables me to correct the errors I make when composing pictures. I can crop pictures several times to find what interested me in that scene. I can flip the image, lighten/darken the image, even edit the image.
His selection of equipment is very similar to my selection except on a little lower price basis. Brad can afford a little more expensive equipment since he is a professional photographer. My equipment purchase must come out of the family budget. However, it is pleasure to find a professional carrying the same kind of camera body as I use - a Canon Rebel.
This book makes a fine field guide. Shortly I will be taking my annual trip to a landscape artist's heaven in New Mexico. I will travel with my camera, laptop, and Photoshop. At the end of each day, I can review my day's work and consult this book on how to improve.
This book is a fine practical guide to getting the most out of your equipment and out of your self-taught photo workshop. It shows you can make great pictures without an arsenal of lenses and the latest add-ons.
If you are looking for some specific method for removing things from a scene and making major alterations, this is not the book for you. But, if you are striving to improve your images and maintain truthfulness to the image, then this is one great book.
