Format: Kindle Edition
Scott Kelby with his latest installment ‘Photo Recipes’ in long lasting ‘The Digital Photography Book’ series again manages to deliver excellent piece which will be useful for inexperienced photographers, but also for those who have a lot of pictures in their portfolio.

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Scott's Digital Photography series is THE best selling photography book for a reason. When I started getting attracted to Photography, It was the first set of book I bought apart from "Getting to know my camera". His style of writing and clear and concise instruction makes it easy to follow and implement. Since, I have read all his books, not only this series, but his "Light it, shoot it, retouch it" book. So much so, I went out and bought the Scott Kelby Elinchrom light set from B&H and that's what I have in my studio (http://www.tacksharpstudios.com/. I learn so much from these books. You could attend hundreds of seminars and watch many hours of instruction to get what you can get in this "cliff notes" of a book. This part in the series is special. He devotes two pages to each shot and tells you step by step how he accomplished that shot including some tricks that are not really photography. For e.g., to get a shot without distractions, he tells you to wait an hour or so to get the same picture without as many cars or people in the foreground. They sound so simple and easy to implement that makes you wonder "Now, why didn't I think of it and write a book about it?".. Just kidding. Anyway, I pre-ordered and got this book the first day and I couldn't put it down. It was like a can of Pringles chips that you can't stop eating until you've consumed all of them. Each page in this book is a chip or a nugget. I have flash cards made out of all of Scott's first four books to use as a ready-reckoner (business idea Mr. Kelby Wink!! Wink!!) and can't wait to do that with this book as well. If books aren't enough, I would recommend http://www.kelbyone.com/ for online instruction that's just out of the world. I have recommended that to a number of my friends as well. Hope you all enjoy this book as much as I did.

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.

This book is so inspiring. Scott Kelby has the ability to make the complicated simple. In this book he used a formula that I love! Every two pages he starts with a behind the scenes shot, then he gives a brief description of where they are, sometimes why, and any light modifiers or other gear needed.
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)
* Travel
* 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!
