    This review is from: Michael Freeman’s Top Digital Photography Tips (A Lark Photography Book) (Paperback)

    As reviewers before me have pointed out, Michael Freeman is a very talented and indeed very highly respected photographer and with “Michael Freeman’s Top Digital Photography Tips” he has brought a bit of his immense knowledge closer to all the rest of us.

    The book is written in roughly the same format as Scott Kelby’s “The Digital Photography Book” with one tip taking up one or two pages and all with excellent photographs to illustrate the principle being described. In stark contrast to Mr. Kelby, however, Freeman writes about his subject, photography, in a sincere, easy-going way, omitting the irritating, superfluous ‘humour’ of his colleague. The language is easily understandable, and you get a feeling that the author speaks to you, not down to you. The advice given is not for professionals, but rather aimed at the novice-notsonoviceyetnotpro. Even though some of the advice may seem a bit trivial or basic, I think it never hurts to go over them again every now and then. It just might give you a new perspective on things. And then again, the format of the book makes it entirely possible to skip whichever piece of advice you want or just look up one particular bit of interest. The tips are just that, tips. They’re not a formula to succes, but a suggestion as how to go about handling many different situations in photography. It covers a lot of ground and in the back you’ll find an appendix of suggested literature and websites covering the subjects treated in this book in more detail.

    There are, however, quite a lot of spelling errors, which just bothers me. It seems unprofessional and, to a degree, sloppy. This is not, I’m sure, the fault of the author, but that of the editor.

    Having compared this book with Scott Kelby’s “Digital Photography Book”, I’ll say that, unless you are absolutely camera-just-out-of-the-box new to photography (in which case you should get both, I think), this is the superiour volume.

    This book has been my first Michael Freeman book, but it will certainly not be the last.

    I am at a point where, after doing photography for more than 50 years, if I find one useful tip in a lesson or book or video or seminar, I think it to have been well worth my time to have investigated it.

    I have made notes on over 20 pages in this book. I keep it by my bed and use it as I would a reference guide. It has been that helpful in understanding what my digital camera does, how it does it and why it helps me with my images: theoretical to practical. That is a rare, valuable book to me.

    I am not usre how it would be for a beginner to read this, but for advanced amateurs or photo-artists, it is worth having. It is techy, without be too techy…

    This review is from: Michael Freeman’s Top Digital Photography Tips (A Lark Photography Book) (Paperback)

    Almost in similar fashion to Scott Kelby’s “The Digital Photography Book,” Michael Freeman provides the reader with 101 tips of how to get better pictures. It practically summarizes almost everything you need to know in photography. Its a great book that I would recommend to any beginner photographer, or an intermediate who just wants to make sure that they have got everything covered.
