Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Complete waste of money. Very few pictures and the few that were provided were in black and white and small and on low grade pulp paper. Very rudimentary information about general camera use. Creators should be embarrassed to put something like this out with their names on it - I sure would be.

First 56 "secrets" have little or nothing to do with wildlife photography.

Examples of their "secrets" for photographing wildlife:

Equipment - camera basics
Equipment - camera specifics
Choosing a tripod head
Using your tripod
Carrying your gear
Protecting your gear
Exposure Basicss
Film
Pushing Film
Composition Basics
Backgrounds
Angle - shooting up
Angle - shooting down
Camera position basics
Camera position - Straight on
Camera position - Side view
Auto Focus Sytens
Using Your Camera's Motor Drive
Shutter Speed Rules
Zoom blur
Using Flash
Reflectors
Blinds
Practice
Patience
Editing Your Imaages
Storing and organizing your images
Use the Internet
Where to Find Birds
Where to Find Animals
Take a Field Seminar

Overall I could have written this book in a two days or less. Published in 2005 it is very much out of date. Grand total of 14 pictures of wildlife and all are black and white and most are 2x2 inches in size.

I am trying to understand why anyone wouldn't like this book? Then I realized, its a person who doesn't support the notion of photographing animals in zoos, game farms, parks, etc. Other than the crusaders who don't think we should have zoos, everyone else will enjoy this book. It's packed full of detail. The tips on exposure, equipment, lighting and metering offer some of the best explanations I have ever seen.

I have been studying photography for three years now and bought this book to learn more about photographing animals. It gave me tips I could use at my local zoo with great effect. I saw an immediate improvement in my photos after reading 88 Secrets to Wildlife Photography.

Ignore the crusaders and buy this book. It's affordable, easy to read and packed with lots of great secrets!

I already own the other books in the 88 secrets series, and this one is a great addition to the collection. It gives you all that you need to know for great wildlife photography - techniques, locations, composition, equipment. I really like the way the 88 secrets series is laid out - you can quickly find answers to specific questions and is an easy read. Keep 'em coming!

The straight forward, practical style of the 88 Secrets continues! No lengthy rehashing of confusing theories, just a clear, simple format. In particular, the explanation of exposure is one of the best I have read-direct, clear and practical. In addition, the points on composition are good reminders that can be easily forgotten during the excitement of the shoot. Furthermore, this book is a great resource for your personal practice sessions ( a time to practice technique to improve the craft).
