There are some books on photography which have been doing the rounds for years, getting updates and tweaks (with other pieces remaining unchanges for decades). "Frankenstein editions", in other words. In that time photography has undergone two revolutions (digital and social), and settled down to the point people are even experimenting with film for specific purposes. It's time for a book on photography written from the ground up for modern readers. This is that book. A book that covers everything to do with photograpy and can be picked up by a complete beginner or anyone looking to learn more, but addresses photography from the point of view of the photograph (rather than beginning with 100 pages showing cameras you, as a reader, don't own and can't possibly afford). Packed with the work of inspirational photographers and their tips and experience as well as the expertise of one of the biggest authors in the business, Complete Photography is a fool-proof guide to the world's most popular hobby.
