There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Starts out by reviewing tips from another book to refresh your memory on what you will need to know to make the photos POP.
Like the examples of thirds in lines for photos shown, make you appreciate how you position the subject to the center of the photo.
Colors and explanations of what they mean and are associated with in photos. Filters section to me, was first brought out in a different book by the author.
Lots of links to various sites on the net for further information. Bonus material available. Like work exercises at the end so you can experiment with what and how the author has explained.
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
He makes the ebooks available at very significant discount on a rotating basis. Subscribing to his email newsletter brings you photography tips, and a heads up when a discounted book becomes available. I find this method has good points and bad points.
Good points: Very affordable, can acquire just the subjects of interest, not an overwhelming amount of information at one time. Easy to read.
Bad points: Every book has 30 to 35% taken up with an off subject 15% lead in, and 20% lead out. After 20 books the novelty of this has worn off.
The series of 20+ books (minus the boiler plate and perhaps edited a little) would make good chapters in a single very respectable textbook on photography. Certainly worth your time to read. If in a hurry to learn about a specific subject and can't wait for the rotation, it's likely worth your money too.
I have a desire to learn photography and know that just knowing the way to maintain settings on the camera is not all there is to know.
I am giving it four stars because at this point it is just concepts which I need to try out. If this works for me, I would like to provide an update and rerate.
Thank you Dan for making this available.
I decided to read today and was able to do so while doing my morning walking. I set my Kindle for PC to read aloud mode (turned on free microsoft narrator, then in Kindle for PC pressed CTRL-SHIFT-C to set to continuous reading mode, then pressed CTRL-R to begin reading)
Took about 20 - 25 minutes to get through the book.
Since I don't always make it through long books, this was about the right size for me.
I also like the section on portraits where he recommends everyone in the photo wear the same or at least similar color to make the photo less distracting. I will have to remember this if, as I said in some other reviews, I actually do take the portraits for my church directory next year.
Towards the end Dan also has a section of using filters to add color or to bring out more color. I received a set of filters for Christmas and now I know I just have to experiment with them this summer to see what kind of results I get. Now I know I have to find a good high spot in town to try for sunsets.
Thanks, Dan, for the instruction to use color more than just by snapping a shot.
