Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I enjoyed the information on white balance, cleaning your camera's sensor (something I need to do VERY soon), and calibrating your monitor. The book includes lots of photos and is well laid out. [W]hile this book covers lots of photography subjects, it isn't basic. There is a fair amount of technical, text-book-like information that would probably overwhelm a beginner. Who would it be good for? It would be perfect for someone who is switching from a film SLR camera to a digital SLR. It would also be good for someone who knows the basics of photography but is looking for MORE technical information."--MomandCamera.com

"Would would make fantastic Christmas gifts for the photographer in your life"--review in Kimberlygauthier.com

"I had the opportunity to review a set of the coolest photography books that are fantastic for amateurs like us and I have a set of three just for you! Michael Freeman The DSLR Field Guide: The essential guide to getting the most from your camera; Michael Freeman The Exposure Field Guide: The essential handbook to getting the perfect exposure in photography; any subject, anywhere; Michael FreemanThe Photographer's Eye Field Guide: The essential handbook for traveling with your digital SLR camera"--review in Kimberlygauthier.com

"Michael Freeman's detailed knowledge of all things related to photography amazes me. As does his ability to write clearly and concisely about it. Which is good because this book, designed to fit into a small equipment bag or even a pocket on cargo pants, covers a lot of territory in a relatively small amount of space.I don't know what to state in a review of a book of this type, except to say that anyone buying a DSLR, who is truly interested in improving their photography, should give this small volume a try. Some of it is a bit dense, because some of the material covered is complicated, but it is presented here about as clearly as I have ever seen it anywhere."--BetterinBlackandWhite.com

New saw 'the republic'. Never got people banned by Rayne. I don't want power. I want order, and trust. This is why people wanted you to leave. Why would I set myself up with Cyrus at the masquerade party? I wouldn't. Seth. You can leave. Give up on 'your camp'. Go ahead. Do it. It's a dare.

Let me start off by saying, RP is deffinantly not the way it was before l left for four months. Back then l was leader of 'ethics', with Kenny as a Co-Leader, and Kenny was leader of 'athenian constitution' with me as co-leader. Then Kenny left because his mom found out about his Fa<_>ce<_>bo<_>ok, and he put me in charge. My bios still at 'athenian constitution' saying l was in charge. Both ethics and AC were still good camps. War games everynight. Drama kept to a bare minimum. Everything flowed through. We even had smashed the rebellion from Jordan. Then Kenny got back on, and my screen started to ma<_>lfu<_>nct<_>ion. Me and Kenny talked about who would be leader of ethics while l was gone. I decided him, Ansley, and the Doc were in charge. Then l left. Over that four months ethics became the center of drama. And Kenny decided to give up on it. He placed Cyrus in charge without my permission, but only because Ansley and the doc never ahowed up. Maybe the camp got a little better. Maybe it didn't. Either way Kenny started taking the non-drama filled people from there, and bringing tem to AC in order to have the most active camp. Then he left. I got back litteraly days after he left. The camp was already falling to pieces. Kenny had left me a goodbye note at our book saying he wanted the camp to be the same way it was before he left, when he got back. He didn't even know l was going to come back, and yet he still was a good enough friend to leave that for me. His new leaders started growing inactive one by one. Slowly dissapearing. Rayne was the only that remained. Me Rayne and Jack had a talk one day about bringing the camp back to its former glory, because Kenny is due back any day now. I was only trying to forfill his wish, at our book. So me Rayne and Jack decided to raise our ranks. Jack was already a leader and Rayne was Co l believe. We decide to have us three. Te most active nondrama filled people that rp. People (people meaning Joey acting as other people [Like Jess]) started getting on ME about seizing control and getting rid of horrible leaders (sorry guys). ME. Let me make this clear. I. Was. Not. The. Head. Leader. Of . AC. Rayne. Is. All Joey wants is to get me to Resign like l am now. He wants a spot at power. Thats all he wants. He knew peer pressure would get me to do this. He worked strings on Rayne. Got him to ban people because Joey is his father. You think lm some bad guy here? No l believe you've been lied to by Joey. He's usually th one posting all this sh<_>it about me. About me having a foul mouth and being corrupt. Let me tell you something, l do not have a foul mouth unless its a song, or your name is Shadow Angel, Jordan, or Joey. All of them have made it tere personal goal to make my life misserable. I came back to find half my friends all ready gone. Replaced by newbs (newb meaning new rpers) or rpers that changed there name or attitude. I was the same when l first got back. I changed. But somtimes people don't like change. So l went back to being stone cold leader as l was before. I tried to change ethics for the better. Nothing happened. So l created 'the republic' and Joey saw that and twisted it so it seemed l wanted total power. No. All l wanted was my friends and a rp like the old ones.<p> I will continue at the next res. ~&#167&#1108&#1026&#25282
