I've loved (film) cameras since I was nine years old (a long time ago) and had a Brownie Hawkeye. Resisted digital (now love it), resisted phone cameras, too. But when I received my iPhone a couple of months ago and started playing with the 8mp camera I was hooked. I love many of the free apps for taking pictures with special fx, but it's confusing. What do I need? Want? How will I learn to use them? Is this just a passing fancy? Adam Bronkhorst's book SnAPP Shots is exactly what I needed. The size of the book is small and can be stowed in a tote (for a quick reference in the field), the chapters are well-illustrated and deceptively simple, with succinct explanations and tips. I've only had this book for a few days and I've already downloaded two free camera apps. I've created superimposed pictures, multiple exposures, now understand what HDR is and look forward to trying all sorts of fun things. Love it! So glad someone had the foresight to sort things out for those of us who are photo enthusiasts, but not professionals. Thanks, Adam Bronkhorst.

This book is a pretty straight forward guide to using the cameras on phones, the basic rules of photography, and optimizing your photo taking with your cell phone. What it is not is a concise description of different photo apps and their usage. The author mentions many apps, but does little to offer any guidelines in using them.

Pros: A good beginners guide to digital photography with cell phone and point and shoot digital cameras (as photos from other sources can be imported into your digital device where you can use a variety of apps on them). There are tips and tricks on taking better photos in a wide variety of shooting conditions. It has many interesting and cool examples of pictures captured on cell phones and the results of using various photo apps on them. The photos are motivational and I found the book worth purchasing just to check out all these cool examples.

Cons: Offers little to a more experienced photographer other than suggesting different apps to acquire and beautify your images. If you aren't into motivational examples then this book may not be for you. I suggest you using the "look inside" feature on this website to see if you think the book would be of any real help to you. I was rather surprised at the omission of information about probably the two biggest and best mobile photo apps, Adobe Photoshop Touch and Apple iPhoto for the iPad.

So I recommend this book for people just trying to break into digital photography, but for more experienced photographers not so much unless you enjoy (as I do) checking out the results of different techniques and cool photos by a variety of users.
