Digital cameras have changed the face of photography for both amateurs and professionals; the advent of film-free cameras and photo manipulation software has revolutionized the art of taking photographs. Classic film photography has by no means died out, however - many experts still prefer to use a film camera for certain types of shot, and some qualities attainable in film are as yet unmatched by digital pictures. This comprehensive book addresses the art of both film and digital photography, providing the enthusiast with information on everything from understanding aperture and focus to manipulating images for maximum effect on a computer. Every key aspect of photography is described and illustrated in this book. From the very basics of how to hold a camera and use a tripod, and knowing which films or lenses to buy, to advanced computer manipulation of images and knowing what kind of software you need for picture storage and sharing, readers are given expert advice to help make the right purchases, and get the most out of the kit they own. Creative guidance is given to help amateurs advance their photography to a new level - framing and setting up shots, choosing the most effective point of view, and looking for texture, light, shape and composition opportunities. Issues such as depth of field and shutter speed are discussed with illustrations and example shots, and readers are invited to 'Try it Yourself', with simple exercises that enable them to fully get to grips with each technique. Taking photographs as you learn is the best way to start building up a good portfolio. The book is packed with example photographs, each with a commentary about how the shot was achieved and what makes it good or bad. Learning to identify areas for improvement, as well as knowing what makes a picture great, are key to advancing your photography skills.

Scott Kelby, author 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 can really use today that made part 1 so successful. This book truly 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 behind the person I’m shooting turns black. How do I fix that?’ I wouldn’t give you 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 should do it.’ Well, that’s what this book is all about: you and I out shooting, where I answer questions, give you advice, and share the secrets I’ve learned just like I would with a friend–without all the 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 transform 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. This 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.
