    The organization of this book is "show one picture, and tell how it was made".This is a really good cookbook for the beginners, helped me a lot, but sometimes it is brief a little bit. Some techniques could be explained in more depth, but the 2-3 pages are enough to give ideas. It is a real good "My frist book about photography", but if you want to dig deaper into some specific techniques, you should consider to buy those specific books too.

    The intent of this book is to provide hints and tips for a range of different techniques to be used to generate creative photos. As the title suggests, the techniques are arranged in alphabetical order, so starting from 'Abstract Art' and going through to 'Zooming'. This makes for a slightly disconcerting read if you go through it from front to back, each chapter can be a surprise and have nothing to do with the one before, but it is obviously written as a reference to be dipped into.The book was written in 1998 and is focussed entirely on film cameras and the wet darkroom. I found this a little surprising but I guess much has changed in 10 years. Most of the in-camera techniques are still relevant to the digital user however, and the darkroom techniques can be of interest if only to work out how you might accomplish the same thing in Photoshop.The author has an engaging style and is obviously familiar with all the techniques described. A good range of photos are included and full descriptions of the approach taken is given on each one.The book is targeted at beginners and would work well for that level of user, though they will need to be comfortable with basic camera controls such as changing aperture for creative depth of field, for example. I came to the book as a reasonably experienced user (beginner/intermediate) looking to generally shake up their approach to taking photos, to get away from the rather conventional. I ended up with about half a dozen techniques I would like to try, quite a number that were rather obvious and I already knew, and a fair number that were not really relevant to my digital way of working.So an enjoyable book, an interesting insight into the past but ultimately limited for today's digital user.

    Some useful tips but a bit out of date now because based on film photography rather than digital. Why do amazon insist on a minimum number of words! They want me to say more; I want them to pay more tax to the UK!

    Excellent book for beginers and enthusiast photographers. Each section is concisely written with good information. The info is just as good for digital as film. Well worth the money
