Stoppees' Guide to Photography & Light. is a valuable resource for photographers at any experience level. Filled with practical examples, it encourages me to experiment and improve my technique. I like the book's format, with short "chapters" that are easy on the eyes. And, when I've got a question, I can find the answer quickly. A must have!!!!!
