    A good study in techniques

    I felt the book was very good; It takes various 'rules' of photography, about composition, lighting, posing and style, and addresses each separately. It's not technical, so you don't get bogged down in equipment and settings. It does give you a great deal of insight on how to make a good photograph.

    I wasted my money on this book!

    I was very disappointed in this book. It showed great pictures of before and after but he doesn't tell you what to set the camera at. I mainly wanted to know more about settings and how to capture the right picture with the right settings. You're left in the dark.
