John Shaw’s Guide to Digital Nature Photography is a handbook that could be beneficial to both inexperienced and experienced photographers. It is jam-packed with information that begins with suggestions about which equipment to purchase and concludes with a chapter on photo editing.
Each chapter is illustrated with gorgeous photos taken by the author that highlight whatever aspect of photography is being discussed. There is too much information in this book to read once and find yourself ready to take prize-winning photos. This is a manual that can be referred to again and again, not only for tips but for another look at those fantastic photos.
I feel that I learned a good bit during my initial scan through its pages and will be checking in again for answers to specific questions as I practice my photography skills.
