I've read a lot of photography websites, blogs, "how-to's" and books, and this is one of the best out there.

I really loved this book. I've been familiar with Tony's work for several years through his windows books and was looking forward to this one because I know how smart he is.

I absolutely love everything about this guide! I own other photography publications (some, even issued to me when I studied photography in college) and they are not nearly as concise, up-to-date and informative as this one is.

Very neatly organized, and packed with helpful information, this book is simply a must have!
