This book has exceeded my expectations. Bryan takes the reader to a level of intimate understanding starting with the basics and quickly propelling you through the mindset of photographic composition. Only drawback to this books was the size. It is considerably smaller in size than the others in Bryan's photography series.
This has to be one of the best books I have read and I would highly recommend it for any new photographer who wants to understand the entire process of picture taking. This book explains in easy to understand terms what your camera is doing the moment you press the shutter button as well as how to adjust your camera settings for better pictures.
