Scott Kelby, author of The Digital Photography Book, volume 1 (the worldâs best-selling digital photography book of all time), is back with a follow-up to his volume 2 smash best seller, with an entirely new book that picks up right where he left off. Itâs even more of that âAh haâso thatâs how they do it,â straight-to-the-point, skip-the-techno-jargon stuff you can really use today to make your shots even better. This book truly has a brilliant premise, and hereâs how Scott describes it: âIf you and I were out on a shoot and you asked me, âHey Scott, I want the light for this portrait to look really soft and flattering. How far back should I put this softbox?â I wouldnât give you a lecture about lighting ratios, or flash modifiers. In real life, Iâd just turn to you and say, âMove it in as close to your subject as you possibly can, without it actually showing up in the shot.â Well, thatâs what this book is all about: you and I out shooting where I answer questions, give you advice, and share the secrets Iâve learned, just like I would with a friendâwithout all the technical explanations and techie photo speak.â Each page covers a single concept on how to make your photography better. Every time you turn the page, youâll learn another pro setting, tool, or trick to transform your work from snapshots into gallery prints. If youâre tired of taking shots that look âokay,â and if youâre tired of looking in photography magazines and thinking, âWhy donât my shots look like that?â then this is the book for you. This isnât a book of theoryâfull of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. This is a book on which button to push, which setting to use, and when to use it. With nearly 200 more of the most closely guarded photographic âtricks of the trade,â this book gets you shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos every time.
