'The book gradually introduces the reader to increasingly sophisticated arrangements, with each chapter adding a new layer of technical skill... this is a very useful and practical book.'
'....students of photography should find the well-laid-out theoretical information, practical advice, revision exercises and detailed assignments a useful resource to guide them through their course. The structured format means you can dip into any chapter for a quick re-cap....'
