This book continues in the same vein as the earlier editions. Straightforward and easy to follow and each item is a paragraph or so long. I have been a photographer for over 35 years and I still learn from these books. I would say that anyone, amateur or professional can learn from this and at a great price you cant lose.
I am working my way through some of the tips in the book and the tips on HDR (high dynamic range) are worth buying the book for by itself.
For book 4 the majority of the content is aimed at DSLR and advanced Compact System Camera users. For example the first three chapters concern flash, either in the studio or the more advanced on-camera (not built-in) flashguns. Owners of point and shoot cameras will learn from the less equipment-oriented tips but these form the minority of the pages.
So, assuming you have a more advanced camera what will you learn about? Besides flash, which is a dark art for many, there are sections on sport photography, using the video functionality of your DSLR, tips for travel and street photography, landscapes and some more of the "recipe for this type of shot" that are so popular in this series.
I particularly like the nuggets of pro advice that are liberally sprinkled across the pages, such as getting better street photographs by sitting somewhere quietly for a while until the people around have forgotten you're there and only then beginning to quietly take photographs.
What I really like about this series is the lack of waffle - there is something of interest on every page and the text gets right to the point. They're also great when you have time to take pictures but are stuck for an idea - just open a few pages at random and something will inspire you. Scott's trademark humour is still present in this volume, which makes it an enjoyable read as well as informative.
Each volume is gradually becoming more advanced, so beginners should start with the first volume and work through in order but otherwise this is a perfect volume 4.
Scott Kelby does have a knack of simplifying things and cutting to the core of a subject , without getting too bogged down into technicalities. He provides a good base or framework to build on.
On the negative side, I do have to say that it is time he reigned in his attempts at humour. Whilst I like his light hearted approach to photography, he needs to know he is not a stand up comic. Having to wade through paragraphs of absolute drivel of attempted humour at the start of each chapter, is simply tiresome. He even warns you about it at the start of his book. Its as if his editor told him to 'cut the crap' - but he couldn't actually bring himself to believe his humour is lame.
Worth a punt if you have a few spare quid in your pocket but not his best.
be faced with.This latest volume continues this theme.
Don't just buy this book - buy all 4!!
