Aimed at students, enthusiasts, semi and pro level photographers this guide covers every detail. A lot of attention has been given to this book and the quality shows.
The authors are regularly involved in photography shoots in their own professional careers so their knowledge is nothing short of expert. This extensive guide takes the reader right from writing the brief to post production with every consideration in between, dealing with clients, crew, set-ups, kit and much more.
The book is complimented with many images and is divided into 3 main sections, organisation and set-up, photo shoots and equipment / post production. There are some great case study based interviews on other professionals and digital 3D images of different scenario set-ups. They also feature a budget and pro set-ups with helpful sub-categories for check lists and pro tips.
This is a brilliant handbook for any level of photographer but there is quite a bit of technical jargon and is a lengthy read. However, you don't necessarily have to read the whole book to get yourself ahead of the game just simply read the field you're interested in to get some winning tips.
