Product Description

From the Back Cover

Scott Kelby, author of The Digital Photography Book, volume 1 (the world's best-selling digital photography book of all time), is back with a follow-up to his volume 2 smash best seller, with an entirely new book that picks up right where he left off. It's even more of that “Ah ha—so that's how they do it, straight-to-the-point, skip-the-techno-jargon stuff you can really use today to make your shots even better.

This book truly has a brilliant premise, and here's how Scott describes it: “If you and I were out on a shoot and you asked me, ‘Hey Scott, I want the light for this portrait to look really soft and flattering. How far back should I put this softbox?' I wouldn't give you a lecture about lighting ratios, or flash modifiers. In real life, I'd just turn to you and say, ‘Move it in as close to your subject as you possibly can, without it actually showing up in the shot.' Well, that's what this book is all about: you and I out shooting where I answer questions, give you advice, and share the secrets I've learned, just like I would with a friend—without all the technical explanations and techie photo speak.

Each page covers a single concept on how to make your photography better. Every time you turn the page, you'll learn another pro setting, tool, or trick to transform your work from snapshots into gallery prints. If you're tired of taking shots that look “okay, 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.

This isn't a book of theory—full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. This is a book on which button to push, which setting to use, and when to use it. With nearly 200 more of the most closely guarded photographic “tricks of the trade, this book gets you shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos every time.

Format: Paperback
I own all 3 of this series of Scott Kelby's books. I enjoy his writing, but this book I was really disappointed in. If you are into flash photography, then this book is ideal for you. If you're a landscape or nature photographer, then there is very little in here that would interest you. I think there is so much more in photography than using flashes and lighting equipment. I thought he covered the flash section in his second book. He also talks quite a bit about his Nikon D3 camera. I don't have one of those camera's so I wish he would quit wasting pages on how to set up the menu on only certain models of camera's like Canon or Nikon.

Format: Paperback
I have read all three of Scott Kelby's photography books in this series and I have learned many lessons that have served me well.

The first book is the most helpful for beginners and volume two goes into more detail for more advanced photographers and this volume, number three, seems to be a mixture of both.

Written in easy to read one page tips with all the details of how a picture was taken, it is a book that is worth looking at over and over again. This book also contains lots of information on equipment, lighting and studio shooting.

Good book. Like Scott Kelby's style. Comes across well described and entertaining. Got a little repetitive but has to in order to refresh thoughts and tips. Will recommend buying the boxed set because all three volumes are worth having around. Good book to go back to often to refresh methods and tips given. WIll highly recommend this book and the 3 volume series.

As other reviewers have said, this is the third in Scott's series. If there is a fourth, I will be buying it as well. In one page of clearly written prose, Scott gives an incredible amount of information that certainly will help. Then, he throws in some gems as to certain gear to buy that make photography just that more enjoyable. In this book, it is a strap to replace the one that comes with your DSLR. I went with his suggestion and the strap he suggests is terrific. It beats the 'factory' issue by a country mile. If you are new to photography, these books are worth every cent. I would bet even those who have been working with a camera for a while will find information they can use.
No one that I have suggested buy this book has been disappointed.

I read the first two volumes, and they were amazing, and I knew this one would be as well. I was right!! Tons of great tips, well laid-out, easy-to-read. If you're into photography, this book (and the previous volumes) are THE BEST books for getting better at what you already love doing.

Another great book from Scott's arsenal! It's great that as the Digital world changes, there are more books being written by Scott's team. I highly recommend this to anyone in photography. I have been shooting for over 20 years and I learn lots from all of Scott's books!
