I was really lucky to win this book from Goodreads giveaways. It is fabulous!

The author clearly explains all the details from the various buttons and settings on the camera and what they do to the various lenses and filters to the different types of lighting.

The book is full of gorgeous photographs with tips on how to take a similar shot. What equipment and settings you need are all laid out. I found many helpful tips in this book.

This book covers a lot of scenarios with useful tips and tricks for every one of them. Although some photos don't feel quite spectacular, all are good examples of what they're explaining.
It's a short read book and I feel it's a must have for every beginner photographer out there -and maybe not just beginners-
