Their new take on the 5 S's of Compostion and 4 M's of lighting are well illustrated with images and precisely detailed with words. Easy to remember, too.
The only way you could not benefit from this book would be not to read it! It's beautifully laid out, so scrapbookers will be inspired and equally well photographed so photographer will love it also.
Thank you Donna and Allison! When is your next book coming out?
This book is all about photographing people (the author says as much right in the introductory paragraph), so you won't find photos of inanimate objects or sweeping landscapes, but aren't scrapper's mainly about people anyway. It gave me a ton of ideas for future photos of my daughter.
I also love that that in the back of the book, it offered links to the websites of several of the photographers featured in the book - I checked them out - even MORE great inspiration!
Did I mention that I LOVE this book?
In closing if I could I would give this 10 stars! Way to go Donna and Allison!
At first I liked its clear, simple explanations and the fact it didn't blind me with the scary technical side of using a swanky camera. However I'm starting to think it's the kind of book I wish I'd browsed through in a bookstore or borrowed from the library, rather than bought to have at home to use for regular reference.
I would recommend it to those without much experience with DSLR cameras who want to take 'gap-ad' shots of their kids. It's a great 'beginner book' and is written in a relaxed way that is not intimidating. Of course we are all constantly learning so expect to need to spend more on other books and info sources in the near future as you may be like me and will quickly be hungry for more!
