Book Description

26 April 2012
With over 800 of the most closely guarded photographic “tricks of the trade,” this boxed set—consisting of all four parts of Scott Kelby’s best-selling series, The Digital Photography Book—is the ultimate resource for any one who wants to shoot dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos every time.

Scott Kelby, the man who changed the “digital darkroom” forever with his groundbreaking, best-selling The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers, now tackles the most important side of digital photography—how to take professional-quality shots using the same tricks today’s top digital pros use (and it’s easier than you think). These aren’t books of theory, full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. These are books on which button to push, which setting to use, and when to use it. 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 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 these are the books for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Really Useful & Informative 17 Aug 2012
By Suenos6
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read Scott's Lightroom 4 book (which I highly recommend) I thought I'd try these books and have not been dissappointed.

I guess you could classify me as an "advanced amateur" and in my view these books are aimed at either photographers like me or more advanced/semi pro/pro photographers. Let me explain why by way of example: one of the tips in one of the books (I can't now remember which -may be book 1) concerns trying to get pin sharp focussing of the eyes in portrait photography. Scott doesn't explain that you should first lock focus onto the eye and then recompose the shot (we know that anyway), but he does go on to explain how you can use a different method to ensure pin sharp results particularly when using fast lenses with wide apertures such as f1.4 etc. If none of that made sense to you then I'd suggest the book may be a little advanced for you. Conversly, if you not only understood it but am intrigued as to how to improve your success rate for getting pin sharp results then buy the books.

I have to confess that I probably knew about 50% of what is in these books but nevertheless still well worth buying for the other half.

I bought the kindle edition and thought it really good value for 4 books for just under £30 (this was the price at time of purchase - August 2012). The only downside is that, unlike the kindle version for his Lightroom 4 book, the fact that all the images are black & white (kindle version only) means you cannot always fully see the effect he is trying to demonstratere. This didn't really bother me but I could imagine some people finding this really annoying and demanding their money back. Perhaps best to spend an extra £10 and get the colour hardback/paperback.

Brilliant! Entertainingly written & full of good stuff which is presented in photo project sized bites. Some of the purchasing recommendations are USA- centric though.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book 13 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
great for photography starters as well. and it's particularly excellent as it dosen't require you to read it chapter by chapter, only get the stuff you need and get back to it whenever you need something else. also: mr. kelby writes in a way you wouldn't wanna stop reading anyway.
