9780133856880: The Digital Photography Book: Part 5: Photo Recipes

Scott Kelby, author of the top-selling digital photography book of all time, is back with an entirely new book in his popular series that picks up right where part 4 left off. It’s more of that “Ah ha—so that’s how they do it,” straight-to-the-point, skip-the-technojargon stuff you can really use today that made part 1 so successful.

In parts 1 through 4 of this series, the most popular chapter in the book has always been the last chapter: “Photo Recipes to Help You Get ‘The Shot’.” In each of those chapters, Scott shows a final image and then describes how to get that type of shot.

Here, in part 5, he gives you what you’ve been waiting for: an entire book of nothing but those amazing photo recipes. But, he took it up a big notch by adding a behind-the-scenes photo for every single recipe. Now you can see exactly how it was done, so you can get that exact same look every time.

In these extra pages, each spread allows you to dig in a little deeper and really unlock the power of these recipes. Scott breaks each spread into four segments: (1) he explains exactly what you’re seeing behind the scenes, (2) he lists all of his camera settings, and lens and lighting info—it’s all there, (3) he gives you his thought process, so you learn exactly why he does it this way, and (4) he shares all the post-processing in Lightroom or Photoshop that goes on after the shoot (this is something other books leave out). Plus, the whole book is packed with tips and insights you won’t find anywhere else.

This isn’t a book of theory, full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. This is a book on which button to push, which settings to use, and exactly how and when to use them. With around 100 of the most popular photographic “tricks of the trade,” the entire book is designed to get you shooting like a pro starting today. You’re gonna love it.

Product Description:

Scott Kelby, author of  The Digital Photography Book (the best-selling digital photography book of all time), is back with another follow-up to his smash best-seller, with an entirely new book that picks up right where Part 4 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 people can really use today, and that made volume 1 the world's best-selling book on digital photography.

While The Digital Photography Book, Part 5, has the same look and feel of the first four books in this bestselling series, there is something in this book that's just a little bit different. In the first four volumes, Kelby included a chapter at the end of each book, filled with "photo recipes" showing exactly how he "got the shot." Over the years, many readers have commented that it's their favorite chapter in the books, that it's the most fun and the most educational. So, for Part 5, Scott has created the entire book in this "photo recipes" style. Each two-page spread shows the reader the final photo, as well as a behind-the-scenes image and text that describes exactly how he got the shot. In this Part 5, Scott devotes entire chapters to photographing people (in natural light and in the studio), sports, weddings, landscapes, travel, hot shoe flash, and nature photography. Readers will be shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos in no time.
