Jeff Revell can do no wrong!
on January 26, 2013
I bought this book after buying a couple of others in the Snapshots to Great Shots series. I usually learn better by taking a class or a photo walk than by reading about photography, but these books have improved my photography more than everything else in my 20+ years of being an enthusiastic hobbyist. I have 2 by Jeff Revell and I think I'm in love with him. His writing style is clear, accessible, and conversational. He explains everything in ways that make sense and build your confidence. Such an outstanding teacher. Sigh . . . ;)
I've had PS Elements for years and taught myself how to use it for editing, but after reading this book my photos are a million times better. I also learned how to effectively tag and organize my stash of photos (10k+, and growing). This simple book has changed my photography forever. If you're new to PS it's a must-have. If you've had it awhile but aren't using all of the features it would still be perfect for you. Get this book, then get any others in the series that fit what you need to learn.
