"The book is both comprehensive and accessible to photographers at all levels. Each topic is approached without expectation of previous knowledge from the reader or any photographic snobbery. For example, whether you are reading about comparisons between focal plane, sync speed, leaf and electronic shutters or how to apply an un-sharpen mask in Photoshop, everything is written in an easy-to-digest way for photographers of all backgrounds. [It] provides theoretical content to underpin many of the day-to-day practices of a medical photographer. Other practising clinical photographers will find the book reaffirms much of their current knowledge, while enhancing their understanding in some areas and potentially providing an introduction to unfamiliar techniques.
The underlying feeling I had throughout reading this book was `why couldn't this book have been available while I was studying?' I will certainly be using the book as part of my continuing professional development for many years to come."
