The opening chapters are about equipment and camera basics. While one can think they know a lot, there's always room for learning. I was especially interested in what kind of equipment she was recommending and why. She gives beginning, moderate and expensive set-ups so that you don't have to immediately say, "oh, sure, I'm really going to spend almost $10,000 on a 600mm lens" and stop reading. She explains the why of the settings used to take her sample pictures. I really think "why" is one of the most important things. After each chapter she has a simple assignment to use what she's just written about. I haven't finished the book yet because I'm going through step by step as though it were a class. That seems to be working quite well.
This book is an enjoyable read. It includes some great tips on photography and on getting in position to photograph wildlife. Maybe the best part of the book is the personal exploits of the author. Laurie has been on many exciting photo shoots and describes them well. I intend to use what I learned by reading this book. Even if you don't learn anything new the book is worth buying and reading just for the pleasant experience.
Just what I was looking for. An in-depth introduction to wildlife photography. Equipment and techniques are clearly and concisely explained, but what I like best is the author's approach to the ethics of wildlife photography.
