I love that every photo has the EXIF data below so you can see how the shot was achieved. I find it frustrating in photo books where the writer's a great photographer, but talks only in generalized terms of how to make specific types of shots. I see a shot I like, I want that info right there, and that's what you see in this book. She covers everything from camera basics to styling, workflow - and provides a nice list of resources too. I'll probably buy more food/photo books, as I can seldom find everything in one spot ( and it's nice to get different perspectives, too) but I am more than pleased with my first purchase in this genre.
In addition to being a good resource, it's beautifully laid out, too. From the choice of paper to the photos to the colors of ink, it's easy on the eyes. I recommend it and hope to see more from this writer.
It will help you become an artist.
Ms. Helene Dujardin'ss writing is clear and informative. Her emphasis
is not on technique but in developing your eye and growing as an artist.
It is written in a personal voice and she would love you to experiment and
have fun and see if this is a career for you.
I highly recommend it.

The main area of interest for me was the setting up of the scene, the styling of the food, and the best angles to capture what I want. She gave useful tips that would suit the enthusiast as well as the pro and I'm now practicing what I've learned, the results of which can be seen on my blog: discoverdemelza.com
Pictures not always correspond with text.
Could be improved by sketches or even photographs of set up rather than description in words.
Very helpful to new photographers not just interested in food.
