More About the Author

With a reputation as someone who was always practical, Steven always thought he would go into the field of psychology.

Steven originally started college as a psychology major, but began working for a small software company, trying to make money to pay his way through school. He found himself really enjoying learning about computers and all the elements involved in writing software. As his interests shifted, so did his studies and the rest is history.

He discovered he truly enjoyed the creativity aspects. Being able to conceive an idea and follow the process through to a fully functioning program proved incredibly rewarding and addictive.

Now Steven enjoys sharing his love for programming with others as he teaches classes and demonstrates how much fun it is to be involved in his craft.

Steven lives with his wife and six children on a farm in the beautiful countryside of Vermont, enjoys riding horses, and practicing his love of photography.

2.0 out of 5 stars The problem with these types of books.... 3 Jan. 2014
By Tankery - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This author makes the same mistake most all writers make with explaining DSLR concepts. They say something like, this setting lets more light in....Okay, but why? Someday someone will write the purpose behind letting more light in and show the illustration of more light vs less light, etc. when the concept is brought up in the explanation. This particular book lost me by showing the common dial of a camera in a pic to start off with. Yikes. I don't need this. That's like showing... This is a car... No this book isn't any better at a how to for beginners than any others I've read. Don't throw out concepts like white balance, step metering without good explanation, The author mentions white balance and then tells the reader to consult his manual on where to find this on their camera. We pay for this advice? Nothing at this point why we should select cloudy white balance to do a good sunset.

The writing in general is lame and unprofessional. I did get a good laugh at the style or lack there of in parts. Particularly one part where he is saying you need to get closer to a person when you take their picture, even strangers. If you approach them nicely, they will be okay with it....Wow.

This book is poor in organization also. At one point he states, you can get a noise free image at 100 ISO. This would have been a great place to explain why. What's the difference between 100 and say, 1600. He doesn't do this. Just rambles on.

The tips in here are far from expert. Get closer to your portrait for a better picture? 100 ISO less noise? (These are expert tips?)

At times, this book degenerates into a High School level research paper that, as an English teacher, I would give a D to. Take the section on Lighting. He just has a paragraph on each style that illustrates nothing. But it does show he found line items for lighting somewhere in his research.

No, I would pass on this e-book. Poorly written, typically badly executed. All how to books, even without images, needs to follow the common rule of thumb--show, don't tell. Don't just give a pic of the dial to begin with and go down hill from there. Don't introduce concepts without examples or purpose.

A Great informative guide to taking beautiful photos.
As someone that owns a DSLR camera, yet never really got a grasp on how to use it - this book was very helpful!
Steven writes in a manner that makes the content easy to understand yet not condescending, which is usually not the case when it comes to "How To" books.
Highly recommended to a budding photographer or someone looking to perfect their family photos!

It was easy to understand. I liked the way the author simplified the processes and techniques so a beginner photographer can understand it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Learn How to Take That Perfect Picture 13 Feb. 2014
By Cheri Clay - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
“There is too much to learn in photography and learning doesn’t even have to take place in a school. You don’t have to earn a degree in photography since you can learn on your own through reading, practicing, and experimenting. You just need to put your heart and mind into the entire process, from learning the photography steps and techniques to practicing them.”

As someone who loves photography but doesn’t really understand what to do with a camera except point and shoot this was just the answer. For only fifty-four pages there is so much information but it is concise as well as easy to read and understand. Keller breaks it all down remarkably well as he teaches us about DSLR camera modes, different speeds, and how to take pictures in different situations such as people, food, nature, travel, at night and even action shots. Excellent is the section on the most common mistakes to help avoid the usual mess-ups. So grab your camera and sit back and let Keller show you how to take that perfect shot.
4.0 out of 5 stars For the price, a good book for a beginner 8 Feb. 2014
By Gene Bowker - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
If you have just purchased your first DSLR this book will give you some good tips to get you started in creating better pictures.

If you are an advanced user, it's probably stuff you already know.

The book is short (60 pages) and a quick read.

For the price it is a good value.
