Review

I received the following email from an amazing photographer a few weeks ago, and I need to share it with you. This email is the reason I wrote this eBook. I am honored to have been part of Nigel's photography journey.

"My name is Nigel and I am a photographer from Pembrokeshire, Wales in the UK. Earlier this year I read your book 'Beginners Digital SLR Crash Course' and I totally loved it.  From the first page I had this feeling I was being taught by someone I knew, it had an automatic 'friend' factor which I found made me learn things that little bit easier. I have been taking photos for the past few years but only last year got my first DSLR and together with your help I feel my photos have really come a long way since my days of owning a compact camera.  Earlier this year I also held my first exhibition which led to my photos being covered by a local magazine, later featuring on the cover, which was a massively proud moment for me.

I am however a little bit different from the standard photographer as I am registered as partially sighted due to a long term problem I have had with my optic nerves, so as you can imagine being able to still do photography is a very precious thing for me.  I really hope you will take a look at my website Nigel J Bevans Digital Photography (nigeljbevans.co.uk/) and if you're on Facebook, like my page there also Nigel J Bevans Digital Photography.

When looking at my photos I would like you to remember that in my work there is a little piece from your book that has helped me produce each image you are looking at. Thank you so much for such an awesome read - I can't recommend it highly enough."

- Nigel J Bevans

Showed me the basics of how to deal with my DLSR and how to shoot better shots as a beginner. Detailed, yet easy to follow. PLUS in e-book format, simple to take along my kindle if I need a refresh or to search something quickly.

Pros: Detailed instruction, easy to follow

With instagram, Pinterest and all of the other photo apps out there I wanted to figure out how to really take a photo rather than just applying a filter. I'm not ashamed to say, though, that lenses, SLRs, DSLRs, and all of the other gimmicks and tricks were overwhelming. This book really helped me to focus on the few things that are going to make a big difference in my photos - I hope the author puts out more of these.

I am a beginner and this book really helped me a lot!
The book helped me set up my DSLR camera, and simplify the basics in a way others have failed.

This is a good reference for understanding and getting comfortable with your new digital camera. Being able to understand and use your equipment is what makes it worth the price. Shooting in manual takes your images to a new level of great.

DSLR's shouldn't be confused with 'Point & Shoot' cameras. This book does a good job of taking a neophyte to the next level. It is by no means intended to turn amateurs into Pros. What it does do is encourage the DSLR owner to experiment with the controls available to them and offers some excellent tips on camera setup and why a given setting is useful. For instance, I didn't know that setting the camera to store pictures in JPEG compressed form would not allow me to print anything larger than 4x6 photos. Worse, photo editing tools would have limited value. To reiterate, you won't be ready for professional photo shoots when you're done with the book. I believe the intent of the book is to encourage the DSLR owner to try something other than "AUTO EVERYTHING". It's a good primer, clearly and simply written.

First thing I want to get out of the way is that I do not know the author, as many assume positive reviews are written by relatives or friends. I am neither.

Over the past few months, I have read a great many photography books for someone at beginners level. Many books repeat the same mantra, but ultimately left me as confused as I was before reading.

This book is different, it explains previously complex knowledge in such a simplistic way, that it leaves you thinking, why the heck didn't all those other books tell it in such an easily digested way. Now I get it, I really do get it. At last I can talk the talk AND walk the walk.

Read this book, simples.

A quality Kindle book to learn about photography and the nuances of using a DSLR camera. "Mastering the basics" is what this book is all about, so it's not going to be a book that every photographer will appreciate, but beginners and intermediate photographers hoping to gain more understanding and take better pictures, are likely to appreciate it. The chapters are short and laid out in a logical sequence, addressing specific terms and providing building blocks to great photographs.

The chapters include:

' Camera Settings
' Elements of Exposure
' Histograms
' White Balance
' Camera Modes
' Composition Tips
' Photo Storage
' Big Kid Toys (Equipment)
' Final Thoughts

I liked this book for the information that was presented in a clear way. Illustrations like the ones relating to aperture, really helped me (a visual learner) to understand the concept and how it works. Photos used were helpful too. I just wish there was a touch more content as I think the author could have expanded on concepts presented just a little more.

This isn't a long read, and you can use it as a reference book to refer back to as you continue to learn. There are some suggestions regarding equipment, but overall the book is about understanding terms and how they relate to digital photography. I found it helpful and would recommend it to others.
