From cover to cover this book is visually interesting and packed full of excellent examples of photography. It has an interesting angle as the author, Michael Freeman, has chosen to fill the pages of his latest title with the work of others of which he's then commented / shared his thoughts on. He explains what makes the images work and gives a real insight in to how you can learn from simply admiring other people's work. It's well written, the images are of a decent size and the layout make...
The Complete Guide To Digital Photography is a rather heavy book that's weighed down with pages and pages of extremely useful photography tips and advice. It's a great guide for a beginner to have on their shelves but it shouldn't be overlooked by the more experienced photographer either as there's so much crammed into this book, we're sure they'll be the odd tutorial or two you've not seen before. The book begins by talking you through various essential pieces of photography kit and it ...
This field guide, which is designed to fit in your camera bag, takes a more in-depth look at the settings your camera offers and also offers a few other shooting tips. It's easy to read, simple to follow and gives examples on how you can get the most out of your camera. It's not an exciting read that will have you waiting in anticipation for the next page but it is worth a look at if you're a new Canon EOS Rebel T3i/600D owner.
This is not the most exciting book you'll ever read, however it does give plenty of information about the Canon EOS Rebel T3/1100D. Think of it as an extended manual that also offers tips and techniques. It uses large text which is written in paragraphs that are easy to follow thanks to the use of headings and images throughout. As the book is small it can be placed in your camera bag, making it perfect for taking out on shoots with you when you're still learning about your new camera. I...

If landscape photography appeals to you or you want to further your knowledge in this paticular topic, then this book seems to be the ideal thing. This book would be fitting for both an ameteur of basic photography understanding, or someone with further knowledge, as it uses a number of techinical terms and offers you ideas towards what equipment you should be using, with dia...
I was recently giving the great pleasure of reviewing a photography book, but unlike so many other books out there on this subject Lorenzo's book had so much more to offer. In your life, you may come across a book that makes you stop and question where you are going. This is one such book. Having recently reached the grand age of 50, and like many others before me, it came as a shock to realise that so many years had drifted by. Reflecting on past achievements and lost opportunities was becom...
If you've read your Canon EOS 60D manual and are still looking for more information on how to use it then take a look at this book. This book gives you jargon-free explanations on how to use your camera and what each of the controls are for. The information given is easy to understand, the chapters are well written, feature helpful images and the book's small enough to fit in your bag next to your camera. The end of the book also has a section full of general shooting tips too which is ...
The Digital Photography Composition book is just one of the many helpful photography titles under the For Dummies series umbrella. If you've read one of the For Dummies titles before you'll already be used to the layout. If you're new to the series don't worry; the easy to follow tutorials are split into chapters that feature an image key, explained at the start of the book, to help you through the pages. Plenty of tips are crammed into the pages and the book even gives you a few challenges ...
If you're looking for a Nikon D3100 reference book that's easy to understand, is compact enough to fit in your camera bag, is well written and feature useful diagrams, then take a look at this book. It has less technical jargon than a manual but yet manages to cover the features of the camera in more detail. There's also a section that gives you basic photography tips which isn't something you'll get in the camera manual. It's not an inspiring book but it's one you should have on your s...
Do you find the manual too boring or not easy to understand? Well the digital field guide series is for you. The format's easy to follow and the book is well written and features useful diagrams. An added extra which you won't find in the manual are the hints and tips at the end of the book which cover basic shooting advice. It's not a book that's bursting with inspirational imagery that makes you want to grab your gear and go but it is a handy book to have that's definitely more useful t...
