Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Are you looking to break into the busy world of wedding photography? Need some tips on how to shoot those once-in-a-lifetime moments? Try "The Wedding Photography Field Guide" by Michelle Turner. It's packed full of handy hints that are sure to give you the inspiration you need for that special day.. designed to stimulate your creativity and ensure that you get all the shots you need on this happy day. For this reason, both pro and amateur photographers will find this a rewarding read.. The largest section of this book is devoted to the wedding day itself. As you would expect, all the major themes are touched upon here with advice on venues, ceremonies, and formal shots foremost among the offerings. However, there are interesting sections on setting up a photo booth for wedding guests, tips on post-wedding shots that "trash the dress", and examples of photos from seven real weddings that illustrate the kind of approach that Michelle Turner tries to teach you in this book.. a steal for anyone looking for a portable handbook that has all the essential skills needed to be a successful wedding photographer."—BrightHub.com

"The Wedding Photography Field Guide by Michelle Turner shares an impressive amount of information about shooting weddings. It starts with the gear you need and then moves through each part of the wedding day while sharing suggestions about photographing each part. And of course there are lots of beautiful example photographs of each part of the day. There is even information about post-processing, sharing the images, and a bit about the business aspect of wedding photography! A good read for anyone interested in shooting weddings."—MomandCamera.com

"Michelle Turner is a successful destination wedding photographer. Her 'funky and fashionable'shooting style has put her in a position of high-demand amongst her clients whose weddings take the photographer to stunning visual locations such as the Dominican Republic and Mexico. She is both a coveted national speaker and author and has published two books about fashionable wedding photography."—The Candid Frame.com

"Focal Press, the publishing company behind so many great photography technique and instruction titles, has a series of books they call their "Field Guide" series. These books are compact, only slightly larger than a 4x6 photo and about 200 pages. But they are stuffed full of the most crucial info on the topic at hand. Easily tucked into a briefcase or a camera bag, you can take these books anywhere. Read them on the subway on the way to work and make use of that dead time to learn new techniques. Then keep the book in your camera bag as a reference when on location. Subjects range from Weddings to Bird Photography to the DSLR."—Photo.net
