Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
One of the finest new books on digital photography, this is about the art of digital photography more than the technology. Zuckerman (Shooting & Selling Your Photographs), who has been a professional photographer for nearly 40 years, here compiles 15 critical steps to achieving great pictures. He covers methods for choosing subjects, the use of color for impact, capturing motion, one-of-a-kind perspectives, and thinking as the lens sees. The book is filled with stunning landscapes, portraits, and abstract images. Other books, like David D. Busch's Digital SLR Pro Secrets, focus more on equipment. Zuckerman's title will outlast the rapid changes in the digital field.

I have read other articles by Jim Zuckerman, so I figured I would pick up this book. It is a very easy read and is loaded with beautiful photographs. The book is more so aimed at beginner photographers, and for that purpose it could be a 4-star book. I only gave it 3 stars because I didn't learn a lot of new things from it, although I did learn a fresh new way of thinking while I'm out shooting (learning to see the world how your LENSES see the world, and using that to determine how you shoot a scene). The only thing I didn't like about the book is that he too easily (and too often) mentions using Photoshop to just change something about a photograph (replacing skies, replacing backgrounds, etc.). BUT, that is a matter of personal opinion and preference. So, if you are a beginning photographer looking for tips on what to look for while out in the field, then this is a real good book for you.
