Author Maureen Taylor starts at frame one, reviewing gear and gadgets for both film and digital cameras (including digital video and printers) and giving photographers helpful (and $-saving) tips on what and how to buy. Then its on to taking pictures, with practical advice on improving photo composition, avoiding common errors, lighting, backgrounds, and even how to keep the photographer from getting left out of all the pictures. She also touches on topics of particular interest to family historians, such as photographing gravestones, family heirlooms, and old documents, as well as ethical and legal concerns when posting photographs on the Internet. Throughout, Taylor emphasizes how family photographers can take advantage of new technology and websites to get family photos out of the shoebox and into the hands of people who will love them as much as they do.

Good basic guide, perhaps some of the advice about cameras, printers, etc. is a bit outdated now (published 2007). Lots of tips though - from taking the photo to labelling and storing it. I've been taking photos of family treasures, but I lIked the idea of taking photographs of family members with these. Don't know what my kids will think of posing with grandpa's pipes though!
