Contents: 84 pages of unadulterated photography bliss ;)
After twelve years as a professional photographer, I can confidently say that this is the book that I wish I had when I started photography as a hobby back in 2007. I seriously can’t imagine how much time, money, and frustration I would have bypassed.
Each subject is broken down to its most basic elements to make learning photography as logical and easy as possible (while trying to be somewhat entertaining at the same time- if that doesn't do it for you, there are plenty of pretty pictures to look at).
Upon finishing, you will be able to achieve the same type of photos you see presented throughout this book in your own creative style. So, whether your goal is to take better photos of your dogs, book photography gigs and make a few bucks, or to totally slay it on Instagram, this book is for you.
