About Tom Ang: Photographer, author, traveler and academic. An early pioneer in digital photography, I have written over 30 books on photography as well.

Originally, I pitched a book called ‘How to Photograph Everything’ Then some bright marketing person added ‘absolutely’ and the project really took off.

Originally, I pitched a book called ‘How to Photograph Everything’. Dorling Kindersley loved it and commissioned it almost without looking at the contents break-down. After all, it’s pretty obvious what it’s about. I've used Tom's book as an assignment book (and yes, I have several others that send you on aperture or shutter speed, or creative vision-type assignments). It's an easy to read, beautifully photographed book.

Written by renowned photographer, author, and broadcaster Tom Ang, this book delivers exactly what the title promises and tells you how to photograph absolutely everything. Avoiding intimidating technical jargon, Tom explains the basic elements of photography - light, color, composition, and focus - then goes on to show how to make them work for you. From still lifes to children's parties, thunderstorms to sunsets, close-ups to panoramas, every photographic subject, technique, and challenge is covered

  • I gave it to my 8 year-old niece. She likes it. It can be a little difficult to read for lack of sufficient white space. This is not a damnation of it though; the lack of white space results from so much information being contained. Adequate white space would require 1,000 pages or more. The photographs were taken with a point-and-shoot camera; but even though it isn't in the title, that is one point of the book - showing most people how to shoot most photographs in most situations they will encounter with equipment that most people will have.

  • I purchase this book months ago and it has been a good guide in helping take photos. It has pages and pages of photos, the the camera settings used to take the particular photo are right under the photo. Helps with getting proper setting for particular lighting. Would highly recommend.

  • How to Photograph Absolutely Everything, by Tom Ang, really does exactly that, and does it from a very fine photographers point of view. He starts the book with the basics - as he sees them. It looks like he is simply revealing his own personal photo style so that the reader can copy him. If readers can actually copy him they are sure to make really good pictures. What is more likely to happen is that readers will make adjustments to create a style of their own.

    Every piece of instruction, in every section of the book, is illustrated with excellent photographs. The sections are titled: (1)Elements of Photography; (2)People; (3)Landscapes and Nature; (4)Animals; (5)Architecture; (6)Events; (7)Artistic Expression; and (8)Other Applications. Some pictures, mainly in section one, are simply clear, sharp, and properly exposed photo illustrations. But in every other section he uses really wonderful and inspiring pictures. This makes learning much easier.

    The books approach is well organized, perfectly illustrated, and certainly correct in every way. Every beginner should start here. Most serious amateurs will also find much in this book to improve their own techniques. And in my opinion, it contains some photographs, and a technique or two, that would be of interest to professionals. I'm very impressed with the wide diversity and high quality of Tom Ang's photographs.

    Learning everything in this book probably will not make anyone a great professional photographer. That will take years of practice. But this book sure will get beginners off to a great start.

  • this is a great book for the beginner photography person mostly with a small point and shoot. There are however some very good pointers in the book for beginning dslr users as well. For advanced amateurs there are few great pointers in the back of the book for shooting architecture and low lighting. The book seems to be a lot crammed into it, and not enough detail or background material to go with it. Less is more at times and I believe that is what this book needed. Perhaps, divided the book into one for point and shoot, with not so many shots on one page with small captions of basically how to get that shot. this makes it a bit over whelming with so much of how to on one page. I did enjoy the section on taking architectural shots, this section seemed a bit under written and again less detail. Maybe it is my age and how I was taught how to read and comprehend. Well, this is my two cents, and I know there is not any one perfect book on photography and which can handle as many aspects as this book has done by Tom Ang and his wonderful staff.

  • I am a beginner enthusiast and really have enjoyed Tom Ang's book, actually all of his books, but this one has been the most helpful for where I am right now. It's geared towards using the built in camera settings (ie portrait, landscape, sports etc). I have been going out to take pictures and am usually stumped or intimidated on what to photograph. I've used Tom's book as an assignment book (and yes, I have several others that send you on aperture or shutter speed, or creative vision-type assignments). But for his, I'll say I'm going to photograph architectural features, or flowers, or a cityscape, and I flip to the corresponding pages for review And I use his guidance when I start taking shots. It's an easy to read, beautifully photographed book. And as I'm waiting for my first DSLR to be delivered, I love that his shots are shown being taken with a point and shoot or super zoom (which is what I have been using).

  • I bought "How to Photograph Absolutely Everything" by Tom Ang, and "GoPro: Professional Guide to Filmmaking" by Bradford Schmidt, as a birthday gift for a teen boy who is into photography and being active. He read both of them right away, which is a lot to say about any "how to" book, regardless of the age of the reader.

  • I plan on using this book as part of a digital photography workshop I'm conducting next month. The best thing about this book are the hundreds of photos the author includes. The photos are of the type of subjects most any serious photographer can find, and they are captured with a point-and-shoot camera which is what most people shoot with. I agree with previous reviewer that Ang could have included more detail about the exposure settings. This would have been very useful in helping readers understand better shutter speed, aperture, and ISO settings for particular types of shots.

    I also don't particularly like the layout of the book. The size is pretty awkward. The paperback edition will I think make a better choice because it won't feel so weighty like this one. This book should be more than a coffee table book; it should one that serious photographers use almost like a manual for getting ideas about what and how to shoot in everyday situations. It's a great resource for picking out one or two types of shoots (like night or animal photography) and practicing the suggestions that Ang provides. Overall, great book, but if you don't like heavy hardback books, wait for the soft-bound edition.
