Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Scott Kelby, author of The Digital Photography Book, part 1, the top-selling digital photography book of all time, is back with an entirely new book that picks up right where part 1 left off. It's more of that “Ah ha–so that's how they do it,” straight-to-the-point, skip-thetechno- jargon stuff you can really use today that made part 1 so successful.

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, ‘When I use my flash, the background behind the person I’m shooting turns black. How do I fix that?’ I wouldn’t give you a lecture on flash ratios, or start a discussion on flash synchronization and rear curtain sync. I’d just say, ‘Lower your shutter speed to 1/60 of a second. That should do it.’ 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 over 200 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.

Synopsis:

The Digital Photography Book Part 2, Second Edition, follows in the footsteps of the wildly successful The Digital Photography Book, Part 1, giving photographers nearly two hundred more closely guarded photographic "tricks of the trade" to get them shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos with their digital camera every time they press the shutter button. It's more of that "Ah ha-so that's how they do it," straight-to-the-point info, skipping the techno jargon. It's packed with information that every photographer can use today!

Like the original, each page covers just one trick, just one single concept. With every page, photographers learn another pro setting, another pro tool, another pro trick to transform their work from snapshots into gallery prints. In this book, best-selling photography book author Scott Kelby offers great tips on using flash, shooting close up photography, travel photography, shooting people, and even how to build a studio from scratch, where he demystifies the process so anyone can start taking pro-quality portraits today!

Camera technology advances quickly, and in this update to the 2007 edition of The Digital Photography Book, Part 2, Scott has updated all the tips and tricks to be current for today's photographer. The equipment Scott uses and recommends to the reader has been updated, as well as prices, links, and pictures. This is especially the case in the flash and studio chapters. And in the chapter covering landscape shooting, Scott adds a brand-new section, entitled "The Seven Deadly Sins of Landscape Photography," where he discusses the biggest traps in landscape shots-and how to avoid them in order to create breathtaking imagery.
