Comments about Getting Your Shot:

A sit-down read, but easily read multiple times for more tips.Each page is full of wonderful photos, and the commentary is brief, but focused and thorough.The photos are the usual Nat. Geo. quality, and makes you want to run right out and start shooting!It would be nice to have a packable size for the camera bag, but no other complaints from me!

    Comments about Getting Your Shot:

    I love the " how to tips " that this has to offer. The pictures are stunning and the information on the what the pictures show and what makes them a good picture is a great education for me being an amatur photographer. I will be able to use the information as I go out to shoot. It also makes a great conversation starter on my coffee table!
    I would recommend this to friends.

    Comments about Getting Your Shot:

    There are great pictures and more importantly wonderful information. I haven't fully read through the whole thing yet, but what I have seen so far is great. It is also a wonderful gift for a beginner photographer. I am a teacher and got one for a senior student. She loves it as well.

    What a great book! Packed with wonderful photos by those in Your Shot community and packed with tips, practical examples, and explanations on how to achieve such shots and to improve your craft.
