Book Description

How do you learn how to take professional looking photos within minutes? By hacking it!

If you could simply read a cheat sheet that showed you how to take a pro digital photo in a few minutes, would you read it? We have that cheat sheet. Introducing Digital Photography Hacked!

I started creating the "hack list" when my wife purchased her first digital SLR camera (DSLR) and started taking photos of our young daughter. By providing her with the quick tips I had learned while studying photography at school (and from my father who’s a retired professional photography & my brother, a film maker), she was able to dramatically transform her photos into professional looking works of art.

When she uploaded the photos of our daughter to facebook, friends frequently asked who took the professional photos. They were impressed to find out who took them. Some even offered to pay her to have their outdoor family portraits taken.

Follow These 15 Hacks – Shoot Like A Pro

By sharing these tips with her and other people (including some film making students), I was able to narrow these hacks down to the essential 15 hacks, along with the basics you need to know about your DSLR to start taking professional looking photos.

You'll Learn:

* How to instantly separate your subject from the background and give your photos an instant pro look - no editing required. Movie makers and professional magazine photographers use it all the time.

* How to get perfect focus every time. This 5 second trick works every time.

* Understand ISO, Shutter Speed, Exposure - and how to use them.

* How to use your flash the right way, instead of it destroying your photos (it's like having an professional soft box).

* How to pick great locations for outdoor portraits (even if it's just outside your house or local park).

* And much much more (such as angles, lighting, etc.)

Learn how you can start taking professional looking photos simply by looking at our Hacked! sheet

2.0 out of 5 stars Hacked? 29 Dec. 2014

Covers aperture/shutter/ISO along with exposure compensation and image size and quality well enough. Some poor quality control in the manuscript and the author's attempt at chummy writing sounds a bit condescending.

5.0 out of 5 stars + Well-written Guide for Beginners 29 May 2014
By Bassocantor - Published on

There is a lot to like about this book--especially if you are just getting started with digital photography with a SLR.

▲ Mr. Woolf does a good job of explaining the details of image quality, and how it relates to number of pixels. Similarly, he discusses the technical details about aperture settings and exposure.

▲ The lighting section is especially good. The book describes many of the mistakes that beginners make, and how to rectify them. Hint: Don't miss the "put the napkin over the flash" tip.

▲ I especially liked the "15 Hacks" sections right at the beginning. I did not know about the important of indirect lighting versus direct lighting. I bet a lot of readers will make that same mistake.

After the "15 Hacks" comes the Introduction. Having the Intro come after another section confused me; in fact, I thought at first the 15 hacks might be the entire book. Of course, there is much more to the book than the initial 15 hacks section.

√ Nice book--good intro for a beginner; probably too basic for more advanced photographers. Recommend!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 11 Jun. 2014
By Vicki Hook - Published on

I've already done some reading and have a little basic knowledge of the exposure triangle (Aperture, ISO, and Shutter Speed) but I still struggle with confidence to put these things in to practice. By the summary of this book, I really thought it would get me going in in the right direction.

Let me just say, I'm glad it was only $2.99! There is a lot of rambling by the author in this book (a lot of which was useless information and could have been cut out!) Wouldn't be so bad if it was entertaining ramblings, but it's not. In addition, there are a lot of spelling errors in this book. This doesn't bother me in day-to-day life because I'm not perfect and I don't expect others to be perfect. But it shouldn't be this bad in published works that should have been proofed ahead of time. I can see how one or two could slip through the cracks, no big deal, but it became slightly annoying (only because I was frustrated that I wasted money. Sorry, just being honest.) I normally wouldn't even add something so minor to a review but just putting it out there.

Now, I gave it two stars instead of just one because IF you are brand new, have done no research on your own, and just starting out with your DSLR camera, then you might get a basic understanding from this book. But there is no great revelation here that I haven't already read online for free.

Informative and easy to digest. A quick look. Not meant to be a whole photography class, just basic information.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the better books 24 May 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
The basic skills required to use a DSLR and produce decent results were explained clearly and simply in this book.
I thought it was written in plain English without using too many technical terms, but the essential photographic terms were included
A handy guide for a novice with a few good tips that would benefit those with a bit more experience
