This book was a requirement for an online photography course that I am currently enrolled. I have scanned the book and thoroughly read Chapter One. It is comprehensive, easy to understand, and full of good information. The information is a little outdated from a technology perspective in that it is still referring to film cameras instead of digital, but the principals are still the same. I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn how to take better pictures. My only criticsm is related to the condition of the book. I purchased a "new book". The book that I received had a worn, yellowed dust jacket. It looks like it has been sitting on the shelf for years. I had to look at it closely to verify that it was, in fact, "new" and to go back to my original order to verify that I had ordered a new and not a used book.
Great service and product!
Being fairly new to photography myself, I was more than a little overwhelmed by the sheer number of photography books available. After carefully surveying the market and making a few trips to the local library, I began to notice that two styles of books seemed the favorites: Kodak's series of books and books authored by John Hedgecoe. After purchasing and reading books from both, I can tell you that you can't go wrong with either choice.
This book in particular I liked very much. John breaks the book into three sections. The first part is about the basics of photography: 1) how camera works (basic terms like aperature, f-stop and shutter speed) and 2) choosing and understanding the camera, lenses and flashes. The second part of the book is a series of projects you can do in order to learn to use your 35mm SLR. Each project provides details about how to acheive the desired shot. The book contained over 70 projects! Finally in the last section, the author provides some insight for you once you master the skills presented in the book.
While I must admit that the Kodak book on 35mm photography is just as good, you won't be disappointed with this purchase. The sheer volume of information, tips and advice are alone worth the price. If you take the time as I did to plow through the book, I know you will see amazing results. While I never intend to pursue photography from more than an amatuer sense, I feel after reading this book and applying the techniques that I now have skills to be quite proud of, not to mention good looking pictures.
I strongly recommend this book for beginners and intermediate SLR users. Once you finish this book, check out his other books on specific photography topics like photographing landscapes. All around this book is a solid buy.
This is a good bock for people who want to start creating interesting different pictures. The artistic concepts are very well described, but there is a lack of technical information. Although sometimes the author mentions compact cameras, most features are not available in compact cameras - be careful! Excellent book for beginners with SLRs, who want to understand the artistic concepts and making experiments with a new camera. I have an APS compact and learned a lot, but many things I can't do!

Hedgecoe explains the various basic techniques for a beginner in photography. He depicts "lessons" that work as examples in broadening the creativity of a photographer on the basic level. The explanations of various angles and use of depth of field help explain the technical aspects and limitations a camera and/or lens. Knowing such things allow the photographer to know how to create the compostion and image they desire. This book is well suited for the curious beginner who prefers a book to hands-on learning.
I am a beginner and wanted a book to explain what is involved in taking a good picture. I expected a technical manual to explain the corelation of shutter speed and aperture and good detail on lenses. This book seems to touch lightly on those and spends the rest of the time talking about great pictures rather than telling you how to do it. It is not a complete guide to using a SLR camera.
