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 i...

  • The Digital Photography Book is Excellent

    In 209 pages, Scott Kelby manages to give many practical and condensed recommendations on how to get the most from your digital camera. As he says, these are the kind of tips he would give to a buddy who's accompanying him on a photo shoot. The topics covered include gear, shooting flowers, weddings, landscapes, sports, people, travel and getting good prints. All this without getting bogged down in too many technical details and sprinkled with his wry sense of humor. If you understand the basics (and even if you don't), he gives good advise on when to use which settings. He mentions Photoshop, but this is not a Photoshop book. It's about getting the best shot before you bring it into Photoshop or some other program.

  • best dig. photography book!

    If there is ONE BOOK you buy about digital photography, let it be this. This book isn't all about focusing on shutter speed, apetures, f-stops, etc. He gives advice like you would if you too were just shooting together. Not "this is the reason why" but "if you want that shot, do this." Gives good advice on equipment, times to shoot, and what glass to use. Focused on Nikons and Canons.

  • great book!

    I bought this book as a Christmas gift for my sister and HAD to take a peek through it. It had so much good information that I might either have to borrow it from her or buy my own copy!

  • Best digital photo book

    A great book. I've purchase two. One for myself and another as a gift. I teach photography and plan to purchase more. Each chapter explains specific photo shots. Easy and a fun read.
