The chapter headings are clear and the advice given in each section is clear and concise with pictures, illustrations and charts to help. It will be a great reference tool.

        Comments about National Geographic Ultimate Field Guide to Photography:

        I bought this book based on the name -- ULTIMATE GUIDE. I was expecting a very advanced tutorial on the techniques used by NG's photographers. There were a few, but the book was primarily a "Photography 101" textbook.

        I was expecting to learn the advanced secrets of great wild life photographers. I wanted to learn how to get the perfect shot of a Serengeti Cheetah in a flat-out 70 mph run.

        To be fair, there are a lot of great photographs, and it is a well-written quality book. But, it's way more elementary than I was expecting. So, don't buy this book if you are looking an "Ultimate Guide".

          Book may have been updated, but it still feels quite old. You can definitively tell it was not written in/for the digital era...
