Editorial Reviews

Review

"Of all the photography books I have on my bookshelf, and believe me, I have quite a few, this is the one that stands out as the most helpful. It is the first one I recommend to new photographers and it is one that I refer to when I need a bit of a refresher. It will take the fear out of moving from the point and shoot modes to the creative modes of your camera."
- Digital Photography School

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Primer for the Novice Photographer
By OrlandoTed on November 17, 2017
I had picked up a digital version of this book when I first started shooting and read it nearly cover to cover on a plane ride during a business trip. I put Bryan's tips to use as soon as the plane hit the ground and was immediately rewarded with some fine memories from the trip. That was some five years ago. When we purchased a digital camera for my girlfriend's son I immediately sought out the print version to put in the bag. He loved it and started using his camera the way it should be used - out of Program Mode!

No book will create fantastic photos just by reading it. You still have to have an eye and be willing to experiment a little with what the camera can do. Bryan Peterson does an amazing job of challenging the novice photographer, getting them out of their comfort zone and thinking about the technical capabilities of these very complex pieces of equipment. I now unconsciously employ the exposure triangle whenever I'm setting up a shot whereas before I didn't really understand why some photos worked well and others didn't. Bryan's analogy of ISO settings compared to a number of construction workers or bees in a hive is a priceless gem that I have expressed several times to my photographer friends when we're out shooting.

The examples provided in the book are plentiful and easily understood. An excellent read for any novice wanting to take their camera out of Auto and start taking 'real' photographs instead of snapshots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating and Really makes the penny drop - Easy to read, understand and digest.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 24, 2019
If you buy just one book to get to grips with photography and a shiny new DSLT or DSLR Camera - GET THIS ONE.

I downloaded the sample and in no time was engrossed, understanding and what's more taking it in and retaining what I had read, along with the practice sections, it went in and has stayed there. So I bought the book.

Bryan Petersen's way of explaining and guiding is GREAT.

If you are just starting to learn or on the way with your photography and there are things you don't get - BUY IT.

This book is not all about exposure, it covers a lot of area's like F Stops, ISO, Shutter speed, Creatively Correct Exposure and so much more, it is well worth every penny and the little effort that is asked for every so many pages.

I do not usually write a review about books - but felt I had to, DON'T take my word for it - Download the sample from Kindle - you WILL have an epiphany.
