I'm in RIT's M&P class, they basically wrote the book for this class years ago. RIT is the number one photo school in the nation, argueably. I go to RIT this book has all the answers to figuring out the difficult problems posed to us in class. It is especially useful when you have a professor and isn't really a good book for someone not in a photo class such as M&P, something similar in my mind that is more interesting and a little easier to understand is "The Negative" by A. Adams. But I get more out of the negative when I read it over, due to the things I learned in this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is the most disappointing $60 investment I've made in recent years. Most of the info is so boring, technical & arcane that I have no idea who could possibly benefit from reading this book except the authors & publishers.Was this review helpful?
