"Improve Your Photography" has been purchased by thousands of beginning photographers across the world and has been recently updated in this second edition.
The book is packed full of quick and easy tips to encourage budding photographers to improve while learning concepts and technical information on photography. Jim explains this book this way, "This is what every photographer needs to know to take clean and stunning photos. If I would have had this book when I started, I would have been two years ahead of everyone else in just 100 pages."
The book covers topics such as tips for taking better portraits of people, instruction on choosing lenses, tips for landscape and sunset photography, and HDR.
Unlike most photography books that confuse beginning and intermediate photographers with difficult concepts and too much technical data, this book is designed specifically to teach photographers who are just learning how shutter speed, aperture, and ISO work together.
"If I would have had this book when I started learning photography, I would have been two years ahead in learning."

For someone such as myself, who is just starting out, I feel that this book has covered all the basics, answered my questions and more! It's well written and easy to understand. It's really wet my appetite and given me confidence. I do feel however that there could have been more visual explanations, for example with regards image composition and the rule of thirds, something you'd expect in a photography book, also the referenced images were nowhere to be seen in most cases. I'm happy I bought the book. It's comprehensive and informative, but it could have been better illustrated with visual aids.
This was an extremely useful book for beginners. I have recently taken the plunge and have moved away from simple point and shoot to the more creative opportunities that DSLR offer. If you are considering this route, read this book before you part with your hard-earned cash... You will save a fortune and end up with just what you need.
I have already seen huge improvements in my photography after reading this book. It is also worth mentioning that the book is VERY readable... It is pitched at exactly then right level!
I just hope that I can find another book in the somewhat limited iTunes library to move on to...
