Photo books are a dime a dozen, and most rehash all the same stuff over and over again - but E.J. Peiker's book is different, it's targeted specifically at one subject - ducks. The book does cover all the standard fare topics (equipment, exposure, light, technique . . . and so on) but every subject is directed back to the book's main focus - how it relates to ducks! The section on field techniques is very detailed and was found to be a strong benefit to enhancing my outdoor acumen - espeically the section on Outdoor Flash Photography.
Field Techniques Section:
- Approaching Wild Ducks
- Natural Light Photography
- Outdoor Flash Photography
- Lens Technique
- Ducks in Flight
It's an easy, enjoyable and informative read! This is also one book that you'll keep handy as it makes a great "field guide" of ducks, both native and visitors to north america, as it is wonderfully illustrated with E.J's great images. I use it regularly as a reference to confirm identification.
Now this is an eBook, but I consider that an advantage as it's always with me (in my iPad or iPhone) and available for that quick identification.
You haven't tried an eBook yet? Well, this is a great one to start with then!
