Fundamentals of Photography Book Review and GIVEAWAY!!

by zesty on January 7, 2009 · 172 comments

It’s Giveaway Time! This month I have the pleasure of giving away 2 free books.  I am giving away a beautiful and wholly comprehensive how-to book for today’s photographers, FUNDAMENTALS OF PHOTOGRAPHY by renowned author, Tom Ang.

Novice or Advanced, Film or Digital, this book is your guide to everything photography related today.

Fundamentals of Photography – Book Review

When I received this book in the mail – I was really excited. I love free stuff not too mention I am really interested photography and learning how to improve my picture taking skills.  If this sounds like you – than this book will be perfect!

About the Book

Fundamentals of Photography, the Essential Handbook for Both Digital and Film Cameras, by Tom Ang is 352 pages long with a soft cover. The book contains 11 chapters filled with information and sample photos to demonstrate the topics covered. The chapters include a General Introduction, Fundamentals of Light, The Camera, Capturing Light, Using the Lens, Manipulating Light, Working with Color, Processing the Image, Digitizing the Image, Outputting the Image, and References.

Each chapter is broken up into small sections covering a very specific topic (as the sample above shows). Most of the sections span two pages (across the fold), so the topic can be studied without flipping through page after page — it’s at your fingertips.  Certain sections are also marked as “advanced topics” aimed at the photographers with a previous background. And finally, there are “Analysis” sections in some of the chapters that present a full image across the two pages.  This analysis includes many notes pointing out tips that were discussed in previous sections of the chapter — like a “tutorial” lesson.

The really cool thing about this book is the fact that it presents material for both digital and film photography.

About the Author

Tom Ang is an award-winning photographer and a leading authority on digital photography. His books include Dictionary of Photography and Digital Imaging, Digital Photographer’s Handbook, Photoshop CS for Photography, and How to Photograph Absolutely Everything. His work has been exhibited internationally, and for twelve years he was Senior Lecturer in Photographic Practice at the University of Westminster, London. He was the presenter for two six-part BBC programs on digital photography.

He has contributed regularly to magazines such as What Digital Camera? and The British Journal of Photography, and now writes for MacUser magazine. Tom won the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award for his photographic coverage of the Marco Polo Expedition, which pioneered the modern land crossing from Europe to China via Central Asia.

You can find Tom on the web at his main website.  This man has a wealth of knowledge, and I’d suggest you check out his website and any of his books.

Zesty’s Final Thoughts

I like it!  I definitely like it. My main reason for liking the book is because of its concise layout.  It gets to the point and doesn’t fool around. The book covers topics for all photography lovers as it is easy enough for a beginner, but interesting and useful enough for advanced photographers.  I would definitely recommend this book as a great read and a great reference.

What a cool book! I use a Nikon S550 digital camera for my every day use, but when I’m doing my “real” photography stuff, I use a Minolta SLR from 1972. Its fully manual and takes the most beautiful pictures!

2 Tina

Fun contest! I use a Canon– unfortunately, it’s being fixed right now!

3 Maria

Awesome giveaway, thanks for being so generous!

I use an old-as-dirt Kodak. Can’t afford anything else right now, with college bills and such, but it does what I need it to, for now.

OOh that looks great! I’ll enter! My camera is a Canon Rebel XS. :)

I have a Canon EOS Rebel XT SLR that I love, got it 3 years ago. But sadly its only 8MP.

29 ergunm

My camera is Canon S5. I like it very much.. It is considered as the last step through SLR cameras.

30 AverageGal

What a fun contest! I love taking photos, but don’t take enough! I currently am using a Casio Exilim EX-S10 10.1 Megapixel Digital Camera.

31 At Home with Kim Vallee

I use a Nikon D50. I would like to upgrade to the D200 once I learned the basics. This book will come handy.

32 ashley (sweet & natural)

What a cool contest! I use a Casio Exilim that’s like 5 years old. I have to work to get good pictures out of it, especially considering I have no natural light in my apartment! But I love food photography (don’t we all), so this book would be very helpful. :-)

33 julz

AWESOME! RIght now I use a Canon SD880 IS, but am SO ready to upgrade!! I have been looking for one and partic. checking out some nifty SLRs :) Yayyyuhhhh.

34 Marianne

Woohoo for photography!

I’m all about the Canon’s. I’m currently using a Canon EOS Digital Rebel SLR. My point & shoot has died. I do still have my grandpa’s film SLR camera that I used for photography in school – it’s ancient, but works awesome!

35 Judy

Looks like a great book. I use a Panasonic Lumix. Not my dream camers but…

judy at nofearentertaining dot com

36 Sburg1985

38 Lisa@The Cutting Edge of Ordinary

I have a Nikon D60. I just got it last fall after saving for quite a long time. I love it and I’d love to win that book!

Thanks for the opportunity.

39 Nick

That’s awesome Zesty. I just posted about my new Canon Rebel XSi DSLR Camera and mentioned your contest at the end. I could really use this book, I want to learn how to use this camera to its fullest potential. Thanks for the giveaway!

40 Prepared Mommy

I don’t even know what kind of camera we have (it’s digital) how sad is that?! Now, where is that camera case…oh yes, in the dining room. I’ll be right back…

…ok I’m back now. Looks like it’s a Fugifilm FinePix 3800 Digital Camera. Yay!

I’ve taken *a few* decent pictures with this little guy, and we’ve had it FOREVER. Many of the pictures that I take for my blog have to be altered in PSP or Photoshop to be worthy of internet use. Sometimes, it’s not very bright at all…even with the flash. I suppose most of my picture foibles are due to user error.

Thank you kindly for such a great giveaway!

41 Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter)

Hi-ya Zesty. I use a Canon digital camera. Not sure of the details as I don’t have it with me at the moment. My brother gave it to me for Christmas, and although it’s a bit bulky for carrying around all the time, I love it. It is capable of so much more than I use it for – guess I need to sit down and read the manual. :)

I’ve gotten so many compliments on my new blog header. You the best!

42 Shanan

I recently got a Canon Rebel XSi DSLR and would love to book to help me learn how to use it properly!

43 Heather

Hi Zesty Cook! I am currently using an Olympus Stylus 710. I like my camera a lot – and I would love to win the book, because I have been trying to work on my photography and I am sure this would help.
Thanks!

44 Patricia

I use a Nikon coolpix point and shoot camera–3 or 4 years old.

I have a red Sony cybershot camera (DSC-T100), but my food pictures always turn out horrible! I have been trying lots of different angles and lightening, but haven’t figured it out yet =/

110 Biz

Hey Zesty – just checking up on my blog reading!

My new camera (thanks to my hubby!) is an Olympus Stylus 1010 (blue!). I don’t know 3/4 of the things it is capable of yet though!

I thought I wanted it because of the “cuisine” setting, but that setting always uses the flash, you can’t turn it off! But it has a super macro which I love!

I am thinking of taking a digital camera class so someone can teach me how to make the most out of my camera – this book would be very helpful!

111 Katie

I use a Kodak M753 – I got it for less than $100, but I love it. I’d really like to upgrade sometime soon…I just need to learn some more about photography first. This book sounds perfect for me!

112 megan

I use the Kodak M863. Just a convenient little point an shoot. I had a Nikon but I hated it. Now if I only had a book to help me. ;)

113 Kasey

Right now I just have a Canon Power Shot – it suits a lot of my “quick photo” needs. I also have a more expensive Sony something or other.

145 Katie

Pretty book! I use a Canon Powershot SD870. I love it, but I could definitely use some pointers in terms of technique!

146 teeni

Hmmm. Well, I’m already subscribed to you so I can drool all over my keyboard when I see your food pics on the monitor. But I’m not sure if I am a verified subscriber. Now you are getting all technical on me. Please let me know if I am or am not verified.

I like to think I can always learn new things. I haven’t got a clue about photography so count me in on the contest. My camera’s name is Lucky. Lucky that I haven’t dropped it and killed it like the last one I had. That one’s name was Unlucky. ;)

147 teeni

Oops. I thought you said camera name. Now I see you wanted the camera BRAND name. That’s very different. I use an Olympus. Feel free to amend my comment.

148 Nathan

I just got an Olympus FE-350 for quick shots. Works pretty well for most situations.

149 Christina

How fun! I’ve been in the habit of using a Sony Cybershot SLR 8.0 megapixel, but I just got a Canon Powershot 10.0 megapixel for Christmas. Both take great pictures, but are such different cameras.

150 Dane Deasy

I have two digital cameras. I use the 5D for my professional shoots and a Panasonic DMC-LX3 as my everyday point and shoot.

151 Lizzieunderpants

I just came across your blog today. All your recipes look fantastic. I love to cook, and love taking photos of food as well (some people think I’m strange, but I’m noticing more and more of them are doing the same).

I just bought myself the new Canon DSLR Rebel XSi. I’m still learning how to use it, and so far it’s been great. The book would help a lot!

152 gizmo56

I use a Canon SD880IS

153 Danielle

I’m a newbie to the grown-up camera scene, as I recently purchased a Canon Rebel! I love it already but could really use some tips from an expert. Thanks.

154 ktcruiser

I have a Canon Rebel as well as a Panasonic Lumix point-and-shoot.

155 Jamie

Looks like a great book. I have most recently begun my qwest to learn more about taking great photos. I currently use a Kodak ZD710 – decent camera but not as great as a SLR. Would love the capabilities that a SLR provides when taking shots.
