    Don’t be foolish. There are two editions of this book on iBooks. The other one, “Made for iBooks”, costs the same amount BUT is more current and contains ebmedded versions of all the videos, so you don’t have to be online in order to watch them. Get the other edition. Not this one.

    I've read a few photography books. They are all so stuffy and old fashion. This book teaches you all you need to know about modern photography. Also, this is what an eBook is suppose to look like. Hours of EXTREMELY useful and high quality videos. I after reading this book, I stepped outside with my daughter and made AMAZING portraits of her following the guidelines in this book. I like these portraits of her more than any we have from professionals.
  • Top notch photography book!
