This is a really cool book with helpful technical information about shooting photos with different types of cameras and setting up interesting compositions. It also explains a lot about lighting and how to use it to shoot interesting photos of people, places and things. There is also a section on how to DIY some accessories like lighting diffusers and reflectors.
The book is very helpful to individuals wanting to get a better grasp on their photos for sharing. It is also a fun and pretty read that makes an excellent gift for anyone who wants to learn how to take better pictures for social media. I consider it a great primer for anyone who is new to social media or just wants to improve their photos and/or lighting knowledge.
I liked this book b/u of it basic approach. My husband is much more experienced in photography and his books overwhelm me.
I do agree with another reviewer -- the title is a bit misleading 'Picture Perfect Social Media' - it seems like all the references to social media are indirect rather than direct steps to take a good selfie for example, which is what I expected. Although I did not get what I requested (I requested it from my library based on the title), it introduced me to other very interesting materials.
I do 'judge' books by the way they look and feel and I like this book very much. The 7X9 size of the book feels so great in your hands, and the beautiful font and feel of the pages, makes it a pleasure to browse through. But for any selfie help...you need to look elsewhere...;-)
