Sehr informativ, die Themen ausgiebig und professionell besprochen und schön aufgemacht.
Alles in Allem: für den Laien wie für den Profi - empfehlenswert.
+ Es ist sehr umfassend.
+ Viele Situationen sind auch auf andere (nicht Hochzeits-) Anlässe übertragbar.
+ Die Tips sind sehr praxisorientiert.
+ Der Fotograf arbeitet nicht mit 'ganz großer' Ausrüstung (entspricht durchaus noch (mit ein paar Abstrichen) der von ambitionierten Amateuren).
+ Es ist gut gegliedert.
+ Das Design ist ansprechend.
Leider ist es zur Zeit nur in englisch verfügbar und man muß die Entfernungsangaben von Fuß in Meter umrechnen (letzteres bedeutet aber nur teilen durch 3; kein wirkliches Problem).
Ich würde das Buch jederzeit wieder kaufen.
In my opinion it is a great book with many hot tips for every kind of people and event photography.
It is very practicaly orientated with step by step explanations.
It really gave me a view into professional organized work.
Worth to read it!!

But I must say I did learn quite a few things that really enhanced my shooting experience and helps me get great exposures in camera, which is very important to me. I still think shooting in raw is very important to get the best quality images and I still wouldn't shoot with an assistant. But there were other things I learnt from reading the book that were equally important to me and a great help to getting the image right in camera which makes it immensely easier to edit the photos.
It covers what kind of lighting to use during your portrait shoots and how to achieve flattering lighting including:
-Exposure techniques and how to get it right without using a light meter.
-Using options such as bounce flash vs umbrellas and all the points between.
-Creative lighting methods including backlighting your subjects.
-Natural lighting without a flash.
-Rule of quadrants and thirds
-Repeat elements and framing a scene.
The author covers what kind of equipment he uses including why he uses a 17-85 4-5.6 (canon) lens and even non f2.8 premium glass. This is an important section because while he is using good gear, he is not trying to tell you to buy premium gear. In fact he recommends a lot of common sense glass that is within reach of even a starving artist. The idea here is that he is not trying to shove 2.8 glass down your throat and tell you that is what you "must have". He has great sample of work using a 7D (not that it is a point and shoot) and some basic f4 or 5.6 glass. He covers why he would rather use the high iso of the new cameras and stick to 5.6 when he can. You also learn about why he uses a wide lens at times and the proper way to do it. You learn about his lighting kit which is quantum flash and monolights at times mixed with on camera direct flash or bounce flash.
Next you follow the photographer from start to finish on a full day shoot to learn some great planning methods and how to capture the images along the way. We are talking a large portion of the book dedicated to the full day from start to finish.
So for the beginner: This book will teach you what you will need to do the job. Why you need it and techniques to get you going. It will not teach you about marketing or anything legal. It will teach you methods that are absolutely vital to doing the job right.
For the working existing pro's: This book is a great read and may give you some ideas to refresh why you are doing this job to start with and will maybe help get you excited again and give you some ideas. I found this book to be helpful and a joy to read.
A side note: This was mentioned before in another review I read about this book, the book has a lot of good samples and almost all the images shown are with the help of an assistant. I agree with this. It is not to say that you cant do the task if you work alone, but it will just mean more stress and some missed shots. It is not to say you cant do it but it is just not realistic to be able to capture everything on the day when you cant be in two places at once. I feel the majority of the lighting can be done using speedlights and lights on stands but you cant haul around monolights and be in two places at the same time. You will need to read the book and work with your bride to prioritize what you need to capture and where you need to be on the wedding day. I understand that not every photographer has an assistant or 2-3 assistants (as written in this book in some places) but that should not stop you from doing a good job. It means traveling with less gear and using it correctly and also working with your bride to get a timeline that can provide them with the photos they want. Most brides know what they are paying for and it is your job to educate them on what you can and cant do for a specific budget they have.
In the end I feel this book is great and a good read. I would buy the paperback version as I imagine the E book version would be hard to follow because of all the images. This book was written in a way that I feel the author is not holding back info or trying to show how great he is but rather in a way that is simple and clean. It can improve you as a photographer or teach you some new ways of thinking. Great job to the writer and happy shooting guys/gals.
