    His books -and I have some of those - were lucid, well written. The man loved photography...that should say enough.
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    I was self taught using Vestal - Craft of Photography for my B&W education starting at age 15. Soon thereafter I discovered Hedgecoe in my small town library, and from him learned how to work effectively capturing colour.

    I now passively collect older photo books as I come across them atht he right price, and have quite afew of his in my collection.

    It is not really a surprise, given how well most of his books sold. The nice part though, is that once you get over that the gear mentioned in the book may be 30 yeas old, the basic concepts being advanced are still very viable today.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Most of Hedgcoe's books draw from Langford who he worked with & who's books were the a min academic text books in the UK for over 30 years. The team behind the Hedgecoe books, and it was very much a team effort probably get overlooked these days, but I liased with some of them when sorting out my small collaboration to Advanced Photography.

    not just in the UK, I keep recommending Langford's and Hedgecoe's books for people who is starting up or trying to get into more advanced themes. Sad to hear about him passing away.

    John's are among the first photography books I ever picked up. Sorry to hear of this so late.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...
