I would highly recommend the book to anyone starting out in photography, very very useful.
First of all, this is a great book in any form--hard copy or ebook. However, as far as I can tell, there are a bunch of great paper books out there on DSLR photography. When I downloaded the Kindle sample and read through it, I knew that the ebook format was the way to go.
I've owned a Kindle since version 1, and now own the Fire. Tony's book should be a primer on how to properly create an ebook. The embedded links and videos, as well as the ability to grab the sample photos and enlarge for detailed study (need an Internet connection for the latter two items) is invaluable to rank photography newbs like me. The videos are top-notch and contain many side-by-side examples of how pictures are improved when applying the techniques that are covered in the video. The videos are stuck in the appropriate place in the book, which leads to excellent learning flow as you build on the lessons. The experiences on the Kindle Fire and the iPad and PC Kindle apps are equally excellent.
Tony has indicated that he plans on improving and updating the ebook contents, which all buyers will be able to download as they become available. This is a refreshing change to the "quick scan, make a buck and forget" mentality that the big publishers follow. I will try to update my review as this new content becomes available.
Finally, the price. Tony has evidently not subscribed to the overpriced ebook mentality that has been the source of thousands of complaints on Amazon. Compared to the phyiscal version, he is charging about half. Obviously Tony wants to sell many books reasonably rather than try to gouge us buyers. Again, very refreshing.
I am looking forward to improving my nonexistent skills over the years using Tony's book as my teacher. No matter which version you buy, you will do well. However, I strongly suggest you go for the ebook.
The book is a mixture of information, tips, and practice assignments. If you want to learn or improve your photography, get this book. It does not matter what camera you have. Canon, Nikon, Sony, whatever, you will learn a lot from this book. It is all about digital, but much of what the book covers applies to all photography.
Tony, and his wife Chelsea, have a very comfortable method of presentation that keeps you engaged and walks you through all the topics in a friendly, informative (and most important, not boring) manner.
For the price, you cannot go wrong, plus the book is loaded with videos that walk you through shooting in a variety of circumstances. This book is an enormous value, from beginner to expert, because frankly, it is always good to keep learning and reviewing. If you have a casual interest or even if you are contemplating becoming a professional photographer with plenty of experience, buy this book. The best book on the subject available.
I'm going to teach a beginning digital photo course next spring and this will be the text I recommend.
