What a fantastic book. I am new to photography and this book is just brilliant. It provides guidance and support for each step of the journey from choosing a camera, to ideas for portraits and landscapes to using computer software and everything in between. It is full of amazing photos accompanied by specific settings on how to achieve similar shots. I will definitely be taking this along as I start to explore the world of photography. Although it is a book which will help me learn, it is gorgeous enough to be left on a coffee table. Absolutely beautiful!
