What could top the #1 best-selling photography book of all time?
We’re talking about the award-winning, worldwide smash hit, written by Scott Kelby, that’s been translated into dozens of different languages, because it’s the one book that really shows you how to take professional-quality shots using the same tricks today’s top digital pros use.
Well, what if you took that book, created four more just like it but with even more tips, plucked out only the best tips from all five of THOSE books, updated the images, referenced all-new gear, and added a completely new chapter on how to make the transition from shooting photos with your phone to making photographs with your new DSLR?
In The Best of The Digital Photography Book, you’ll find all of Scott’s favorite tips and techniques curated and updated from The Digital Photography Book, Parts 1-5, along with a brand new chapter on transitioning from your phone to a full-fledged DSLR. You’ll find everything that made the first five titles a success: Scott answering questions, giving out advice, and sharing the secrets he’s learned just like he would with a friend–without all the technical explanations and techie photo speak. This book will help you shoot dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos every time.
Photos are windows into our souls, into our lives and memories. Each photo brings back countless emotions and is a snapshot of a moment in time. Looking at a wedding photo brings back fond memories of smiling, dancing, being surrounded by cheering friends, and perhaps crying as you stared into the eyes of the love of your life. Looking at a picture of an old pet brings back nostalgia for your childhood, remembrance of bright, sunny days when you went to the park to play catch or take a walk, and of grooming soft fur. Yet oftentimes these pictures turn out blurry or simply wrong, but who really cares as long as at least one picture is decent? But what if you could do more than just avoid blurriness? What if you could really, truly capture an important, memorable moment in your life with a quality that brings tears to your eyes years later rather than the question: “Where was this even taken?” Maybe these questions aren’t things you’ve thought about, or things you even knew you needed to know to take good pictures. But these are all very much keys to succeeding at digital photography. In this book, I will lead you through every step to success you need in learning how to take digital photos like a professional. This includes: • Choosing the right camera • Photography techniques • Specific types of photography, like food, weddings, and landscapes • Photo editing • And much more! So go on, and give it a shot. Soon you will find that the perks of knowing how to properly take a photo go far beyond merely saving money at a wedding by taking the photos yourself. After all, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and our memories caught in an eternal moment of time are priceless.
