I love it!

Great book! This was one of the first Scott Kelby books that I've purchased. I stumbled upon it while browsing the bookstore one day. At first, I thought "This book is awfully thin for a photography book. How much can he really cover?" But because it was a short book, it did grab my attention and I quickly flipped through the pages out of curiosity. Well... that's all it took. I ended up purchasing the book that day because his explanations were very clear and also seemed too good to be true. I had to try his techniques out myself. And you know what? THEY WORK! All of the instructions are very straight forward. There's no confusion at all. And trust me, I am one of those people who are easily confused by technical stuff. My brain just shuts down on that stuff. Haha! Oh, I love that Scott Kelby wrote this book with a little bit of silly added. It makes the reading even more enjoyable. If you are even a little bit interested in this book, here are some things you can expect: 1. Very clear instructions on what he's talking about. 2. A hint of silly. 3. An improvement in your own photography. Truly. He helped me fully understand what my photo teachers had been trying to explain in those classes in just one short book. No, it will not explain all of photography to you. But it will allow you to enjoy it more as you continue learning the different techniques for your camera. I know that some people say it's a little biased towards Nikon stuff, but I have both a Nikon and a Canon, and I don't find that following his instructions on my Canon are any different than on my Nikon. Another great thing about this book is that because it's thin and lightweight, you can carry it out to the field with you as a reference guide. It's a good buy. I've already purchased the rest of the series.
