I love that every photo has the EXIF data below so you can see how the shot was achieved. I find it frustrating in photo books where the writer's a great photographer, but talks only in generalized terms of how to make specific types of shots. I see a shot I like, I want that info right there, and that's what you see in this book. She covers everything from camera basics to styling, workflow - and provides a nice list of resources too. I'll probably buy more food/photo books, as I can seldom find everything in one spot ( and it's nice to get different perspectives, too) but I am more than pleased with my first purchase in this genre.
In addition to being a good resource, it's beautifully laid out, too. From the choice of paper to the photos to the colors of ink, it's easy on the eyes. I recommend it and hope to see more from this writer.
