For amatuers learning about their new DLSR 15 Jun. 2012
By Maria S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For some reason I thought this was going to be a fun photoshop-tricks type instruction guide. And even though I am pretty good at PS, I don't normally do "trick" stuff. Hence, the purchase.

However, I had this on my kindle for less than five minutes before I deleted it and applied for a refund.
The "tricks" are such basic things such as how to do depth of field (and why), filters, angles, extended exposures, etc.
I mean...there is even a small chapter on why to up the contrast.
Good info for people just getting into photography,and who want to know what interesting things they could do by adjusting manual settings and/or fussing in a photo-editing program...but not really for anyone more advanced than that.

It should also be noted that even if you have a kindle fire or are viewing a kindle app on a computer or iPad...the kindle version only has black and white photos of poor quality. Not particularly helpful when discussing filters and such.

Creating polished photo effects with image editing software 19 April 2006
By D. Donovan, Editor/Sr. Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Michelle Perkins' DIGITAL CAMERA TRICKS AND SPECIAL EFFECTS 101 tells how to use basic image-editing software to create polished results. From using a strobe light to create stop-action images to warping and blending digital images, Perkins' focus is on shooting and image editing techniques which require no single program or camera type to achieve.

It is not tha impressive 27 Sept. 2013
By Saber Al Qadi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I gave it 3 stars since it was much below my expectations. In the end of the day, the book is not a wow, you won't be a professional after reading it.

beside, the book had few photoshop tricks. if I wanted photoshop tricks I would buy such a book. I did not want such a book.

it is not that bad for 11$.

Book should not have been written, a flop. 3 Sept. 2013
By Robert Henry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This writer sure missed the point with this book. It was more about using a camera then the techniques which is the whole idea. Clearly he has little knowledge about tricks and special effects and sometimes it was hard to follow. I did how ever did more research and found three other books that were great. I picked one that really was well written and the writer knew what he was talking about, with great pictures and video's. I should have extended my research..
