For long time I’m a big fan of Scott Kelby works, many of which I have reviewed on Amazon such as ‘Photoshop for Lightroom Users’ and ‘The Photoshop Lightroom 5 Book for Digital Photographers’ which are both part of ‘Voices That Matter’ series.
Still, in my opinion his best work is thick and even more helpful masterpiece ‘The Digital Photography Book’ which is not only one of the top-selling and most known photography books of all time, but also a book that with its wealth of information and accessibility is unsurpassed.
In this fifth installment Kelby in nine chapters on almost 250 pages in detail discusses what have been so far the most popular parts of his four ‘Digital Photography’ books – photo recipes – devoting whole book to them.Read more ›
P.S: i don't write too many reviews here on Amazon. If I took the time to write one, that should tell you that it is worth it.
Next paragraph he gives you his actual camera settings, even if they weren't ideal, and he explains why he selected them, including his lens.
Next page he shows you the final image, which is absolutely beautiful, especially now that you've seen the behind the scenes shot.
Third paragraph (of the 2 page spread) he tells you his thought process on the whole image and capture, like why he would put a second diffuser in front of a softbox.
Fourth paragraph he touches on any special retouching.
I'm going to take the hot-shoe chapter, and work through every example like a workbook. See if I can recreate the essence of what he's teaching but with my locations.
He has a chapter on:
* Natural light portraits
* One light setups
* Two or more lights
* Hot-shoe flash
* Weddings (ugh, not my thing but still worth reading and studying)
* Landscapes & nature
* Other stuff (like product photography)
* Post production
He is also a talented photographer himself. Now that may sound like a requirement to be a photography author, but it is not. Many writers have a lot of technical complicated knowledge, but no artistic vision. This writer has really studied the craft and acquired the skills both technical and has a photographers eye.
He his hands down my favorite photography how-to author because he makes everything look easy, and I think to myself, "I can do that!Read more ›

Another great, easily read book by Kelby. I'm able to take these explanations and go out and try to reproduce them; often with some success.Published 3 days ago by Maria Gonzalez
Not as good as the first four books. If you have the first four books you do not need this book.Published 3 months ago by mickeyMouse
