If you're a wedding (or even a family or senior portrait photographer) then you should be at least thinking of adding Fusion to your business. It will become one of the products that will make or break a studio (if you ask me) in the near future. And, you need some good help getting up to speed.
Sure, you're a great still photographer or videographer, but what does it take to get involved in fusion quickly and by doing so, set yourself apart from the others in your area trying to get your business? First, you buy this book. Not only does it start you out with the simplicity of defining the terms and making it easy to understand, but it also provides a DVD with the Bebbs teaching you the details as well as giving you some wonderful examples to learn from.
And, while this book is mainly aimed at weddings, there's a whole market of folks wanting family or senior portraits as well and you could apply many of these lessons to that market too (and they're even covered in chapter 10!)
With the companion DVD, you can't really ask for much more information about doing Fusion. Negatives? I couldn't really find too much negative to say. There were a couple of typos and I kinda dislike the coloration of the processing in the training section of the DVD. There were also a couple of sections in the DVD that seemed to be repeats, but it wasn't too annoying. None of these nitpicks detract at all from the overall knowledge that is shared and therefore I give it 5 stars.
My overall summary: this book and DVD are worth much more than the $39.95 list price - you'd pay a ton more for a Fusion training class so pick this book up.
This book covers all aspects of Photo Fusion including gear selection, shooting, editing and delivery. The book is also easy to read and includes tons of beautiful full color photos. Photographers from beginner to seasoned pro will benefit from this book. Order a copy today and stay ahead of the curve in this competitive market.
It has saved us time and money, and for that alone this book was well worth it to us! but the images in the book are simply stunning, and honestly I would have paid for the book just for the inspiration the images gave us....and then the detail of coverage, where to set up for best results, editing, mic handling, and so much more.....
this book is well written, very clear and easy to understand, but has a depth to the information that belies the easy read.....
I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone getting into Fusion, and for weddings, I think in 5 years time, it will be a defining line between photographers. For portrait shoots we intend on capturing the laughter of children, etc..and who would not want to hear the cry of their newborn during a shoot?
