The Complete Photo Manual (Popular Photography): 300+ Skills and Tips for Making Great Pictures Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Photography books tend to be long, technical, and full of complicated jargon. For the amateur or pro who just wants to get quick-hitting tips and loads of inspiration, this is the book that does the job. In 355 handy, easy-to-grasp hints, this book gives you what you need to know to grasp the basics of lighting, composition, gear, working with models, and much, much more. Pro tips make this much more than a beginner’s guide.

Taking amazing pictures is getting easier and easier with the advances in digital photography, and The Complete Photo Manual is here to help you take full advantage! Organized into three useful chapters (Gear & Setup, Shooting & Composing, and Processing & Beyond), this book from the experts at Popular Photography magazine helps you select and use cutting-edge cameras and accessories; teaches you to see the world as a photographer does and shoot in the moment to capture great shots as they happen; and then tweak your images in photo-processing software for next-level effects.

From the subtle (adjusting the color in a picture to create a different mood) to the artistic (compositions merging several photos to dramatic effect) to the downright amazing (how to photograph yourself levitating . . . it’s easier than you think!), The Complete Photo Manual opens up a whole world of photographic possibility.

Set-ups and techniques are described in detail, with easy-to-understand illustrations and diagrams, and a wealth of beautifully inspirational photography. Beginners will learn ways to quickly move into new realms of expertise, and even old pros will pick up some new tricks. Anyone who has ever looked at an amazing composition or a skillful composite and said, “How did they do that?” will find this book irresistible.

Synopsis:

Taking amazing pictures is getting easier and easier with the advances in digital photography. In Take Your Best Shot, the first book in this series with Popular Photography, our expert writers and photographers showed how to capture amazing images in the moment, and how to set up a breath-taking shot.

This book takes image-making to the next level, showing how to create a wide range of photo effects, from the subtle (adjusting the color in a picture to create a different mood) to the artistic (compositions merging several photos to dramatic effect) to the downright amazing (how to photograph yourself levitating . . . it’s easier than you think!)

Competition titles either treat image-manipulation and trick shots as an afterthought, or concentrate solely on specific software products and techniques. This book does nothing but show such insider hints—and proves that you don’t have to be a Photoshop whiz—or even own Photoshop—to pull off the fantastic feats in this book.
