I’m so glad I was able to review this book, I took both a Film Photography an a Digital Photography class when I was in College. I love how simple yet easy to read this book was I do like how it didn’t read like a boring Textbook. Mr. Peterson’s pictures are truly amazing through out this very colorful book. I can’t wait to get my new camera so that I can practice some of his techniques. I will most definitely be checking out his other books as well.
