The title of the book suggests it's a complete photography guide and the 478 pages do a rather good job at backing this up. The book is well written, the advice is easy to follow and it can be quite inspiring too. Images are in abundance which makes the book easier to work through and there's also Photoshop lessons which show you how to get to grips with post-production editing. The book covers plenty of areas and it's the perfect companion for a photographer who's looking for a guid...
What this book lacks in colour it makes up in words. It may not be the nicest book to look at but it does cover a wide selection of topics in a clear and concise way. It isn't a guide that will help you improve your photography but it will give you a better understanding of your camera. It's a shame the images are black and white but overall, thanks to the simple English and useful descriptions, this is a great reference book for any Nikon D200 users out there.
This book is not a text book. It doesn't tell you how to do a particular technique, instead, it shows you a great collection of images and explains how and why they were taken. The book is full of well-taken images which are beautiful to look at and supported by the author's notes. All the images are split into chapters which are headed by explanations and have an abundance of photographs for you to admire. Many subjects are covered and it's the perfect book to sit down and just browse for...
The new manual of photography is a huge guide which is jam-packed with explanations, tips and photographs to aid you on your photography road of discovery. Text is written in very manageable chunks and you can easily pick-up and put this book down at your leisure. If the main body of text doesn't give you enough information, there's also large captions, found under each image, which tell you how, when and what the image was taken on. There's plenty of images which are well taken and aid in...
If you've though about doing HDR photography but you've got a million questions you want answering first, take a look at this book. The book explains what tools you'll need for HRD photography, the basic techniques and it finishes with ideas you may not have thought about trying with HDR. Easy to follow lessons are split into chapters which are easy to navigate and well illustrated with large, colourful images. The photographs split the text up nicely and all feature captions detailing mor...
This is a good book and very useful if you're a beginner or are looking for something easier to read than the camera's manual. Like many of the books in this series the book tells you what and where features are on the camera in an easy, well organised way. The book also has large images with detailed descriptions and some basic tutorials are also on offer towards the end of the book. It's a great book for the beginner but once you know everything about your camera you might want to loo...
The Digital Video Manual is great for someone wanting to improve their home videos. The instructions given are easy to understand and the layout is simple to navigate. The content is very detailed and written in an informative but not boring way and the book has excellent images and specially designed diagrams to help you with your film making needs. It's a good book for the beginner and will help you with all your film-making needs.
If you are looking for something easier to read than the manual but it gives you the same kind of information then take a look at this book. Like many of the books in this series the book tells you what and where features are on the camera rather than how you can use them, hence the extended manual description. However, it does have some practical advice on shooting techniques to the end of the book which is something extra you wouldn't find in the manual. The book is easy to work through...

This guide is great if you want to know how to work your DSLR at a very basic level. This book tells you what parts are and what they do rather than how you can use them but if you're a beginner this is the sort of information you need. Lots of information is crammed into this book but the layout still looks spacey and nothing is squashed together. The text is easy to follow, simple to understand and is supported by colourful and informative images. If you're a beginner you will real...
