Probably a good book for beginner to intermediate photographers Probably a good book for beginner to intermediate photographers. There’s a nice collection of tips and ideas but the same information is freely available on many of the popular photography websites like fstoppers. For advanced or pro shooters I would look elsewhere.

Go Beyond Just Pretty Pictures Concise and very clear. The Complete Portrait Manual gets right to the heart of the informative details needed to raise the quality of your portrait photography. This is my go-to book for photography tips in general, as well as what I need to fine tune my own portrait photo skills beyond the basics. It’s also been a big help in me developing my own style. I specifically bought the Kindle e-book version to have it with me everywhere on my phone or tablet.

A useful beginner book – this is a revision to give Paper_Tiger_Books a much higher rating. I had previously given Paper_Tiger_Books a two star rating, but I have revised this to four stars. The book is good enough for me to use for preparing a beginning course – I like it. I had awarded only two stars because, due to my own error, I had complained that Paper_Tiger_Books had failed to deliver the book as ordered. It turns out that they did, indeed, deliver ahead of schedule. I will not hesitate to order books from this company.
