John Hedgecoe teaches the skills of a professional to the
beginner, and inspires the self-confidence to take on any aspect of
photography, through guided projects and over 400 examples of his own
work.
The new photographer first learns the secrets of
the camera's make-up and its use. Then all the most popular photographic
subjects are covered in 65 easy-to-follow projects, beginning with how
to put together the components of a picture and how to make the most of
lighting. The photographer will then learn how to photograph nature,
still life and dramatic landscapes, to tackle cityscapes, action and
architecture shots, to capture candid portraits and to experiment with
the range of possibilities in black and white photography.
A
section on how to process and print photographs is included, showing how
to set up a darkroom, and it is followed by a technical guide offering
quick-reference data and advice on identifying and solving
picture-taking faults from finished prints.

Hedgecoe has written a classic photography book, and has been around as long as I can remember. It starts with how to use a camera, and then some simple projects for the beginning photographer. He devotes a couple of pages to just about every subject and technique imaginable. . Although he doesn't go into depth, the images are stunning and the information is dead on. There are even two pages on my favorite subject, nudes.

I can't help but notice that some people hated this book, and others loved it. Many of those who gave low ratings either didn't like how it doesn't go into depth on any one topic. If you're looking for an encyclopedia of photography, this is not. I picked up an earlier edition of this book before I knew anything about photography and it was one of my early inspirations.

I would whole-heartedly recommend this author and this book to anyone who was serious about photography, or just had a passing interest. ...more

While I have given Hedgecoe's introductory course book a good read, I am holding onto this book to reference for a study of taking photos. Each time I return back and look at my work and feel that something is missing, it is helpful to me to look at Hendgecoe's manual and consider lenses, lighting, shutter speed, and other tips (on care of camera, for example) that could have helped me improve my work.
