Product Description
Scott Kelby, the man who changed the “digital darkroom” forever with his groundbreaking, #1 bestselling, award-winning book The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers, now tackles the most important side of digital photography–how to take pro-quality shots using the same tricks today’s top digital pros use (and it’s easier than you’d think).

This entire book is written with a brilliant premise, and here’s how Scott describes it: “If you and I were out on a shoot, and you asked me, ‘Hey, how do I get this flower to be in focus, but I want the background out of focus?’ I wouldn’t stand there and give you a lecture about aperture, exposure, and depth of field. In real life, I’d just say, ‘Get out your telephoto lens, set your f/stop to f/2.8, focus on the flower, and fire away.’ You d say, ‘OK,’ and you’d get the shot. That’s what this book is all about. A book of you and I shooting, and I answer the questions, give you advice, and share the secrets I’ve learned just like I would with a friend, without all the technical explanations and without all the techno-photo-speak.”

This isn’t a book of theory—it isn’t full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts: this is a book of which button to push, which setting to use, when to use them, and nearly two hundred of the most closely guarded photographic “tricks of the trade” to get you shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos with your digital camera every time you press the shutter button.

Here’s another thing that makes this book different: each page covers just one trick, just one single concept that makes your photography better. Every time you turn the page, you’ll learn another pro setting, another pro tool, another pro trick to transform your work from snapshots into gallery prints. There’s never been a book like it, and if you’re tired of taking shots that look “OK,” and if you’re tired of looking in photography magazines and thinking, “Why don’t my shots look like that?” then this is the book for you.

    It seems that only Brien Maloney read the same book I did. No one was helpful enough to say when the silly Cxxp ended and the serious helpful meterial bagan. You have 39 reviews and 38 of them are so far off center that I have decided to end the plans for a review area on my own retail web site.

    I buy several hundreds of books a year and have not been this put off since Richard Condon ruined himself with me by the unnecessary merder of a bull fighter many years ago.

    This book stinks and those who rated it high throw their IQs into doubt.

    I ordered this book a few weekes ago and wanted to say that I was happy with the amount of time it took to have it shipped to me. The book is in excellant condition. I ordered it for my son’s class he is taking.

    I did not read this book as soon as my order arrived. I should have, and would have returned it otherwise. If you have ever picked up a camera before (digital or film) buy something else.

    This book and its companion (vol. 2) are terrific and have given me great ideas, however, the quality of this book is pretty poor. I am not sure if it is just my copy or others are similarly affected. Mine has pages falling out and sections coming apart from the binding.

    It is just over my 30 day return limit for Amazon, so I am screwed I guess.

    If you buy this book MAKE SURE your pages are intact and don’t start falling out.
