From the Publisher
With over 800 of the most closely guarded photographic "tricks of
the trade," this boxed set-consisting of all four parts of Scott
Kelby's best-selling series, The Digital Photography Book-is the
ultimate resource for any one who wants to shoot dramatically
better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking
photos every time.
Camera technology advances quickly, and with this boxed set now
including updated editions of Parts 1 and 2, readers will find
refreshed tips and tricks to be current for today's photographer.
The equipment Scott uses and recommends to the reader has been
updated, as well as prices, links, and pictures. In Part 1, Scott
has added a new chapter, addressing the top 10 things he wishes he
would've been taught when he was just starting out in photography.
And, there is a whole new section in Part 2 entitled "The Seven
Deadly Sins of Landscape Photography," where Scott discusses the
biggest traps in landscape shots-and how to avoid them in order to
create breathtaking imagery.
Scott Kelby, the man who changed the "digital darkroom" forever
with his groundbreaking, best-selling The Photoshop Book for
Digital Photographers, now tackles the most important side of
digital photography-how to take professional-quality shots using
the same tricks today's top digital pros use (and it's easier than
you think). These aren't books of theory, full of confusing jargon
and detailed concepts. These are books on which button to push,
which setting to use, and when to use it. 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 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 these are the books for you.
