Great speciality photography book,
This review is from: Crafter's Guide to Taking Great Photos: Fool-Proof Techniques to Make Your Handmade Creations Shine Online (Paperback)
I am starting a crafting business and the thing I was most concerned about was product photography. I have so many products taking them all to a professional studio wouldn't be feasible and having a dslr camera (but used to taking photos on Auto mode) I needed a book like this. I struggled to find this book and am so glad I persevered. It explains all different photography terms, from ISO to aperture and gives real world examples to explain what all the terms mean. It also gives ways of creating different 'diy accessories' - light boxes etc. It seems really down to earth, in that it is a photography book with a purpose, not a general one that tries to sell you their branded products.
I already have my camera but there is a section on camera purchase and doesn't discriminate compact cameras which I thought was great.
Really looking forward to the photography now whereas before this book that was the area that was concerning me most!
