John Shaw's guide to Digital Nature Photography

If you are a photographer, or are aspiring to be one, dig I to this treasure trove of information! Here you will learn, how to get started, autoexposure and exposure to compensation, filters, focussing your lens, teleconverters, working a subject and so much more! All compiled neatly and deftly and accompanied by full color nature photographs. I'm always excited to get a book in the mail, this book especially . I am an avid outdoors lover as well as an artist who enjoys another's form of art. So I looked forward to seeing what Shaw had to offer. Unfortunately I was disappointed. I am not a professional photographer by any means, but I know a good photo when I see or take one. These photos seemed very lack luster to me. Like they were all missing something. Th subject was undeniably gorgeous, but in my personal opinion, not captured very well. And the amount of information in here was much to overwhelming to be useful for me. I'd even say a lot of the information was subjective. And I am personally not a fan of Nikon photography, which didn't help with my overall disappointment. I'm not sure who I'd recommend this book to. Maybe a professional or learning photographer who really loves to know read every bit of information they can concerning their camera and technique.... I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
