words really hit home A lot of it reads like clich , but, in the peace and quiet, I m reminded that clich s beco This was recommended to me by a photographer whose work I follow and whom I met through

clich s become so because they are essentially true Follow your dreams, be creative above all, all that sort of thing He writes in a style that is accessible and uses a lot of well known quotations that illustrate his points This works well I only wish that the Kindle version had bigger images I read it on my iPad and the images illustrating his points are thumbnails There is a wealth of follow up material that I haven t checked out, but hope to when time permits I can see that the assignments could make me a better photographer too It was pretty good, although I thought the author maybe spent a bit too much time attempting to be inspiring It kind of felt like 2 3 of the book was the author talking about how awesome his life is Like you can t be a good photographer unless you re a surfing, rock climbing world traveller whose parents were bohemian artists On the other hand, he s definitely enthusiastic about his craft.Perhaps the problem is that this was recommended as a followup to Understanding Exposure for someone lear It was pretty good, although I thought the author maybe spent a bit too much time attempting to be inspiring It kind of felt like 2 3 of the book

All in all I didn t like so much text but spirit and links names library are big advantage A good all around photography book with clear, uncomplicated writing. I found the first 4 chapters of this book hard to put down and the beginning of each additional chapter was well written and I think followed the theme of the book but then the author would slide off into techy stuff almost and the quality just seemed to drop off I also got very tired of all the quotes almost like he was name dropping I did like the interviews that come at the end of each chapter and the web site links.
