Rated 5-Stars ***** by readers!
Review: "The only thing better than this book is taking one of Kevin's workshops or trips, but whether or not you've done that, or can do it, and whether or not you are an experienced or a novice photographer, this book should always be in your camera bag for quick reference. Kevin gives you all the tips you'll need to help you get the photograph you can see in your mind's eye but may have trouble capturing. It's like having Kevin at your shoulder on every shoot, quietly saying 'Did you remember to--?' An excellent resource!"
