When I’m taking photographs I need basic knowledge to improve what I am doing. I do not yet require all the “what ifs”. This book does it for me.

Superbly focused guidance

I really enjoyed Mr Jones’s excellent book. Short but a very concise selection of key elements all of us who aspire to become good photographers need to learn. I was very happy not to have the over-matey jokiness of some guidance books, and appreciated the straightforwardness of the text and the well-selected examples which all made their point very clearly. The text says the author was planning additional titles and I shall certainly look out for them. Excellent read and I know I will be re-reading too.

Well worth a read.

A short basic book covering the fundamentals of composure.

A Good Introduction…….

By M. Lodge
The author covers a guide to composition very well. The text is kept to the minimum and thet are lots of amazing shots to wet the appetite. The author says that the book is ideal for the beginner which it i,s so long as the reader appreciates that many of the photos included have had some post camera production work on them. Keep this in mind and you won’t go wrong. At the price, you can see some really great photos too which will hopefully inspire.

excellent introduction to composition

This guide to making good photos explains and illustrates with a great range of photos all the reasons why some images look better than others. Clear and straight forward, whilst suited to beginners all photographers will learn something, and enjoy looking at his photographs. Really needs a colour kindle or kindle app on ipad to get the most of the images.

Great book for beginner
