Useful Book I have taken photographs for quite some time, no formal training, and would classify myself as “early intermediate”. The book addresses a number of concepts useful to anyone who wants to improve their photographic skills. I also find it a very useful reference as I work to improve. I would see this as a book someone from beginner to intermediate would find helpful.

Compehensive book on digital photography This book collects all the articles in the website Cambridge in Color. The author of the book is responsible for the mentioned website. All topics of photography are covered with lots of illustrative picture complementing the text.

All the Basics and More I bought this book for my niece who is about to enter high school. I think the best review is her own words: ” Hi Uncle Pete—I am fascinated with the book you sent. It gets right into the ‘mechanics of photography’, offering a lot of help toward turning out beautiful photos. It will be a big help with my photography class.”
