    Reviews from Brizmus Blogs Books

    What a cool book! I was so excited to receive this book for review because, as hard as I try, I'm really just a terrible photographer. I'm hoping that, with all of the fantastic tips I've read in this book, all that's about to change. I think this review is best done with tabs!
    - It was very well-organized, meaning that it was incredibly easy to find anything specific one might be looking for.
    - It has lots of helpful illustrations that complement the ideas being written about. It's just a pity more of them couldn't have been in color.
    - It's got tips and ideas for everyone, from the immediate beginner (seriously, even for those that may not even know how to turn on a camera) to the more advanced photographer just looking for a new way of thinking about something.
    - I think it's a fantastic gift idea for those who love taking pictures or even for someone starting off with a digital camera.
    - It's even great for someone thinking about purchasing a digital camera, as it starts off with some great buying strategies.
    - Literally every single thing I could think to look up I found in this all-inclusive book.
    - At the end of the book, there was a glossary of digital photography terms with clear, concise definitions of next to every possible word one might have trouble with.
    - This book serves as a great reference guide. I know I for one will be happy to have it around.
    - My two biggest complaints were the lack of color photos (which I understood, as I know they can get VERY expensive) and that it sometimes felt a little bit TOO elementary.
    So there you have it. I, for one, thought this book was fantab! My night time photographs have already improved thanks to one small tip from this book.
