    The Photography textbook series seems to be the best in the business, but are also the most expensive Photography The Essential Way is a less expensive but still fully thorough text for photography beginners.Before buying this, I compared the table of contents of this book to the 9th and earlier editions of Photogrpahy From what I could tell, then and now, there isn t a whole lot missing I work with digital files, so I didn t need info on developing my own film, though it might still be mentioned in this version The important topics of lighting, focus, aperture, f stop, etc are all included.If you get this book instead of the fuller texts, you still shouldn t miss much.

    I always recommend this to new photographers This text takes them from start to finish and give the basics of photography I refer back to it from time to time.

    The book is a required college text It s technical content at times is very clear, accurate, and clearly written However, the author s generally take far to long to develop a point, and literally put me to sleep Also, each chapter contains to many useless pictures of bygone photographers, that do not necessarily relate to the specific technical material outlined They do at times provide photos that demonstrate a concept Unless your stuck like I was required college text bypass this book and find something thats clear, concise, and focused on today s technology that s affordable Lastly, this book falls short on so many fronts, I can t believe they can charge so much I will not even keep it as reference book.
