Then you might like to read this special note from Neil to help you decide.hotography is a creative pursuit. Capturing an image as it appears to the eye is only one way, and possibly the less fun way to create photos. Such is the way with special effects photography.
If you own a DLSR then you’re covered. The panorama effect does require a little bit of extra gear and the zoom effect needs a zoom lens – all of which is detailed in the book. Some of the shots can even be created with a compact, and there’s even a smart phone version of the panorama. But I’d say you’re going to get the most from this book it your camera has a manual mode.
