Very useful book highly recommended particularly at the ebook price, but after reading the ebook I believe the full book price to be fair. I have been a keen amateur photographer for 40+ years but I still learnt plenty, particularly in areas of photography I have not explored at depth i.e. portraiture.
If I have any criticism it would be that viewing the colour photographs on a B&W Kindle does not do them justice. I viewed them in my Kindle for android and my PC Kindle to see the full detail of the techniques. Over all a very good and informative photography book.

Nearly a year on from my purchase the book gets even better with its updates and additional information. This is the one photography book I keep going back to to reread a subject and to get the added sections and new video's. Many thanks Tony & Chelsea and keep up the good work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good book for beginners 12 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Afraid of all those dials & buttons on your camera? Only using the 'automatic' function? Then this book is for you! It takes you step by step through your camera, explaining in simple words & photos what the different settings do, and when & why you should use them. But rather than focussing on one camera & showing where the controls are for that camera the author concentrates on the effects gained by using a camera's options, leaving it up to the user to find the specific function on his/her own camera.

Taking the reader by the hand, the author doesn't try to dazzle with technology or bamboozle with terminology but instead breaks the world of photography down in to easily digestible topics, each one with its own chapter. The chapters are simply written, easy to understand, and the authors uses photos to show how much difference can be achieved with a photo by applying his teachings. This approach is ideal not only for learning about photography but also for quick revision when about to undertake a project.

This book has made me realise just how powerful my camera is, and how easy it is to improve my photographs by one or two tweaks of the camera's settings. Well recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book at a stunning price 16 July 2013
By Saesmon
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have just started to work my way through the book for the second time. Even on the first read through, I picked up tips and techniques that instantly improved the quality of my photography. The Kindle edition costs less than a single copy of a photography magazine! Now with 6 hours of online video, email and Facebook support along with free, lifetime, updates, it is amazing value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide 16 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read a number of photography guides over the years and I have to say this is by far the best both in terms of up to date information relating to specific cameras but also very practical advice for almost every type of photography. The use and integration of video is excellent. The e book has helped me rekindle my interest in photography - and improved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every photographer should own this Book 16 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased the E book and although I have not yet read it cover to cover so to speak what chapters I have looked at are easily explained with the lay person in mind. The video's are wonderful and help reinforce everything. If a geriatric and slow to learn amateur photographer like myself find it easy then you will not have a problem. Very highly recommended and you can sign up for free updates! How good is that?

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't hesitate, just buy it! 21 Jun 2014
By SRL
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For the price on one monthly photo magazine this Kindle edition of the SDP is fantastic value. I recently brought first DSLR but have previous experience with film SLRs and thought I knew most of basics. Nevertheless this book put into words some techniques I was using already but had not thought of why they worked + gave more ideas and insight. I like Tony's and Chelsea's style which is engaging, knowledgable and entertaining at the same time. Just buy it or if unsure watch a few of their videos on YouTube (Vistaclues channel) first and then decide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get the Kindle version 11 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Packed full of tips and techniques not only is the Kindle version excellent value but you can take full advantage of the links to online video tutorials and more. Tony Northrup has quite an engaging style as does his wife Chelsea whose video tutorial on posing for portraits is excellent. Thee are nice touches of humour and I like the way the authors say they they are still learning too. There are quizzes to check your learning and practice exercises. There is something for most levels of photographer and this is a resource that I can see me returning to time and time again. Thoroughly recommended.
