Review:

""Read This If You Want to Take Great Photographs" is the perfect quick reference for photographers to toss in their camera bag for a bit of inspiration and reminder of the basics." - "GeekDad" --GeekDad

"If you want really solid advice on how to 'see' great images unfold in front of you, then this should be on your wish list by now." - Digital SLR Photography "An easy-to-follow guide to how to take a decent photo, this systematic and at times humorous book introduces you to everything from basic camera functions, such as aperture and exposure, to more nebulous ideas about the 'perfection of imperfection', using Robert Capa's blurry D-Day landing shots as an example. Wonderfully illustrated throughout." - Royal Photographic Society "Henry Carroll's superb new book takes some beating, thanks to its combination of clear, no-nonsense tips, and iconic images from some of the greatest photographers of the 20th century." - Photography Week --Photography Week

From the Author:

Henry Carroll studied photography at the Royal College of Art and his work has been featured in a number of international exhibitions and publications. Building on his experience teaching aspiring photographers of all ages, Henry founded frui.co.uk, one of the UK’s leading providers of photography holidays and courses. Henry’s clear, jargon-free style of teaching has demystified digital photography and inspired thousands to get creative with their cameras.
