From the Publisher
Scott Kelby, author of The Digital Photography Book (the
best-selling digital photography book of all time), is back with
another follow-up to his smash best-seller, with an entirely new
book that picks up right where volume 3 left off. It's even more of
that "Ah ha, so that' s how they do it," straight-to-the-point,
skip-the-techno-jargon stuff people can really use today, and that
made volume 1 the world's best-selling book on digital
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,
'Hey Scott, I want the light for this portrait to look really soft
and flattering. How far back should I put this softbox?' I wouldn't
give you a lecture about lighting ratios, or flash modifiers. In
real life, I'd just turn to you and say, 'Move it in as close to
your subject as you possibly can, without it actually showing up in
the shot.' 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 another 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.
