1 review for The Digital Photography Book

  • Kelby is one of my favorite authors of photography books, and this book does nothing to diminish that. Yes, it’s a good book for beginners in photography, but also very useful for people with years of experience. he covers the bases and more. I would recommend this book to any photographer. What I like most about author Scott Kelby is that he is maximally informative while at the same time entertaining us with his writing. He is one of my favorite photography book authors. In the beginning he says “if your photos aren’t sharp, the rest doesn’t matter.“

    Kelby explains that he’s going to tell us the how-to of getting better photographs, as in, push this or that button. I appreciate that he won’t go into the myriad technical aspects of how a camera works.

    The author is clever to have only short sections interrupted by gray boxes with hot tips. I love it, because pages and pages of text can lose my interest. Breaking up the topics this way keeps me awake and involved. He has a great, helpful section on autofocus and how do use it, especially for wildlife and other things that move. I could never get enough information on how to focus better. Well done!

    Kelby’s chapter on lenses is just perfect: he doesn’t only describe the various lenses but also talks about how to clean them, lens compression and what we need to know about that, and even lens hoods. I love that he titles in one section “you’re probably going to lose your lens hood.“ 🙂

    If you have not yet specialized, no problem: Kelby covers the gamut. He talks about landscape photography, travel photography, taking portraits, using flash, shooting weddings and sports, wildlife and macro, and even some tips on shooting the sky. I marvel that the author is even able to fit in a decent piece on when and how to shoot HDR, and also how to include the moon in a landscape picture and keep the details.

    Toward the end of this well-done book the author gives us tips on how to do a better job printing your photos – a welcome lesson for me always. And at the very end Kelby include several of his own photographs with recipes for each one. I always appreciate that sort of how-to information.

    This author does not disappoint. The book is full of useful information for beginners and also photographers with experience. On top of that, he’s a joy to read.
