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
