Quality is a chain that is only as strong as its weakest link: camera, lens, materials, technique. The problem is that most people get hung up on one aspect of the chain and refine it endlessly (often, just by buying new equipment) without ever realizing that the quality they can achieve is limited by something else in their personal chain.

This book takes a look at each link in the chain, showing how to achieve the best possible results at each point, while constantly reminding the reader to move on to another link when necessary. Again, this is a book we rather like, and it is on a royalty basis.

The UK (hardback) cover and the US (softback) cover are slightly different; the US cover is shown here.
