Thorsten Overgaard tell more about this eBook:


"Really enjoy your writing and teaching"
D. K. (USA)

"I love your insights on photography."
D.B. (USA)

"I've bought the new book - made a start reading it - it is really interesting.
I know it’s basic at the beginning but it isn't written in a patronizing way. I have been taking photographs for many years and have been lucky enough to be paid to take them for the last seven years; but it's always good to be taken back to the start"
P. S. (UK)
