My Thoughts on the Book:  A year ago my husband bought me my first DSLR camera and enrolled me in a community class at a local college.  I was hooked.  I blog and each Sunday participate in a meme called Project 365 (a week in photos).  This book has been an inspiration to do flower shots, people shots, and nature shots better.  It is a great source book and I delighted to have added it to my photography collection.  I don't want to be a professional....but I do want to be the best at what I do.  If you are interested in photography this book is a must.

Disclaimer:  I received this book from Net Galley and Crown Publishing Group for a fair and honest review.  I was not paid for my review and my thoughts are 100% my own.
