The Photographer's Handbook 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

The book itself covers all topics in photography technique. From the basics to the porfessional level this book is like having an encylopedia, but in a standard size paper back. The infomation in its pages on photography technique can be put to great use for digital or film photographers. The vast amount of knowledge in the book itself makes it a great value for the money, since it has information that could be in 3 books. The book every photographer should have!

This book has helped explain almost all of the concepts of photography. The book is detailed in its descriptions of basic camera working as well as the descriptions of proper photographic settings to use. The only negative I have found with this book is the lack of basic principles for common shooting situations, Shooting inside in low light, flash usage, common mistakes and other basic skills a new photographer needs. However the book provides more advanced information on things such as photo studio lighting and advanced lighting techniques. Overall, a great book for the advanced beginner.
