Scott Kelby, creator of The Digital Photography Book, part 1, the top-selling digital photography book of all time, is back with an entirely new book that picks up right where part 1 left off. It’s more of that “Ah ha–so that’s how they do it,” straight-to-the-point, skip-thetechno- jargon stuff you’ll in reality use today that made part 1 so successful.
This book really has a brilliant premise, and here’s how Scott describes it: “If you and I were out on a shoot and you asked me, ‘When I use my flash, the background in the back of the person I’m shooting turns black. How do I fix that?’ I wouldn’t come up with a lecture on flash ratios, or start a discussion on flash synchronization and rear curtain sync. I’d just say, ‘Lower your shutter speed to 1/60 of a second. That are supposed to do it.’ Well, that’s what this book is all about: you and I out shooting, where I answer questions, come up with advice, and share the secrets I’ve learned just like I would with a friend–without the entire technical explanations and techie photo speak.”
Each page covers a single concept on how to make your photography better. Every time you turn the page, you’ll learn another pro setting, tool, or trick to develop into your work from snapshots into gallery prints. If you’re tired of taking shots that look “okay,” and if you’re tired of looking in photography magazines and thinking, “Why don’t my shots look like that?” then this is the book for you.
This isn’t a book of theory–full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. It is a book on which button to push, which setting to use, and when to use it. With over 200 of the most closely guarded photographic “tricks of the trade,” this book gets you shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos every time.
