The Digital Photography Book Part 5: Photo Recipes
Scott Kelby, author of the top-selling digital photography book of all time, is back with an entirely new book in his popular book series that picks up right where part 4 left off. It’s more of that “Ah ha – so that’s how they do it,” straight-to-the-point, skip-the-techno-jargon stuff you can really use today that made part 1 so successful.
In parts 1 through 4 of this book series, the most popular chapter in the book has always been the last chapter: Photo Recipes to Help You Get “The Shot.” In each of those chapters, Scott shows a final image and then describes how to get that type of shot. Here, in part 5, he gives us what we’ve been waiting for: an entire book of nothing but those amazing photo recipes. But, he took it up a big notch by adding a behind-the-scenes photo for every single recipe. Now you can see exactly how it was done, so you can get that exact same look every time.
With these extra pages, each spread allows us to dig in a little deeper and really unlock the power of these recipes. Scott breaks each spread into four segments: (1) he explains exactly what you’re seeing behind the scenes, (2) he lists all of his camera settings, and lens and lighting info – it’s all there, (3) he gives you the thought process, so you learn exactly why we do it this way, and (4) he shares all the post-processing in Lightroom or Photoshop that goes on after the shoot (this is something the others leave out). Plus, the whole book is packed with tips and insights you won’t find anywhere else.
This isn’t a book of theory, full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. This is a book on which button to push, which settings to use, and exactly how and when to use them. With around 100 of the most popular photographic “tricks of the trade,” the entire book is designed to get you shooting like a pro starting today. You’re gonna love it.
