Amazingly fun and easy to read with very well-depicted, color examples that a novice with a point & shoot camera or a professional can appreciate. You can skip across and back to sections with the most interest to you, but I'll be you find it so fun to read that you'll learn things you weren't even looking for when you started! I bought the book not just for myself, but as gifts for others. One just loves dogs and likes taking photos, the other is a volunteer rescue worker who helps take the best shots (to catch a mood or true character of the dog) for publishing to find it a forever home. I'm going to get another one for my vet, and one for a teenager who wants to start a dog-walking business. Anybody who loves dogs will not only appreciate what there is to learn, but "LOL" along the way!
This book is great for someone just starting Dog Photography. Not a lot of info for the advanced reader, but then again, the advanced reader probably doesn't need to read it either.
