It covers a variety of subjects, from landscapes and still life, to portraits and abstracts. The advice is practical, straight forward and very easy to understand.

100 Ways to Take Better Photographs

An A4 book with 128 pages in full colour. There is a view that books or magazines with a promise of 100 or 200 items may either be scratching around to provide that number or leaving you short in some way. Whereas a book that said 97 tips or 154 ways would subconsciously appear as the complete guide. Michael is well know for his landscape pictures and portraits and this book features heavily on these two subjects. I get the impression it was one of those easy ones to produce and in some areas I ...

American Waters

Underwater photographer, Alex Kilbride, set himself the challenge of driving and diving across the US over a three year period. This 192 page hardback is the result of the incredible 100,000 mile journey and is a stunning visual record of the fascinating underwater world. From a photography technique point of view you can forget this book. I gathered Alex used Kodak film, ISO100 speed and there's a photo of him with a tripod and that's about it. But from a jaw-dropping point-of-view you...

Creative Digital Photography

Mike is a highly respected stock photographer who has written many books on traditional photography based around landscapes and portraiture. As far as Im aware this is his first attempt at a digital book and it does one thing that sets it apart from many of the other digital books. While many book authors attempt to teach you all about pixels, binary code, colour depth and dynamic range, this one avoids the technology and looks at the way it can be applied. It more like a scenic guide to motorin...

The information squeezed into the six chapters is easy to follow and is well illustrated with useful examples. If you want some basic advice on how to improve your family videos then this book...
