Scott Kelby Digital Photography Book

The Digital Photography Book book. Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. This text tackles the most important side of digital. To start the conversation I thought I'd post a reader review of The Digital Photography Book by Scott Kelby. This review was left in our forums by forum member. This is it the #1 best-selling digital photography book ever! It's the award-winning, worldwide smash hit, written by Scott Kelby, that's been translated into dozens.

If you bought a new DSLR camera in the past year or two, even an entry-level model, it already takes better quality photos right out of the box than the high-end pro models did just a few years ago. So, if they both take such great shots, why would anyone ever need a high-end pro camera? So, how can you get better photos out of the camera you already have? Learn your camera inside and out—all the features, all the menus, and what all the buttons do. That way, using your camera becomes automatic and you can stop worrying about all the buttons and dials and start focusing on making great pictures, which is really about two things: See All Related Store Items.

The step-by-step secrets for how to make your photos look like the pros'! From the book.

This book also goes by "themes" so it is easy to reference back to this book whenever you need to. For example there is a "theme" about wedding photography, a "theme" about sports photography This is a great book or I can call it a Guide to get in photography or even to improve your photgraphing ability.

It helps in knowing the way to get better photos; to know what you need for diffrent cases weddings, people portraits, nature, citylife.. I like how I am good in Rhythm's stuff lol: Regards Bader Jan 30, Mark rated it really liked it.

Lots of simple, well explained tips for getting better pictures without a lot of extra editing in software programs. Geared more for the novice who wants to take picture taking to the next level. I would recommend this book to someone fairly new to photography but wants to learn more, but not to someone well versed on the subject.

Nov 26, Hillary rated it did not like it. Granted, I could not get beyond the first chapter, but I have no idea how this book has a single good review! This book is ridiculous! I wanted information and the author gave me fake-outs and stupid humor. Saya cukup skeptis saat pertama kali melihat judul buku ini: The Digital Photography Book. Judul yang sangat lazim ditemui dan terkesan tidak berbeda dengan buku-buku fotografi lainnya.

Awalnya saya menduga buku ini tidak berbeda dengan buku fotografi abal-abal yang membahas istilah-istilah fotografi mendasar seperti diafragma, kecepatan rana, iso, atau istilah-istilah lain yang biasanya ada dalam fitur dasar DSLR.

Awalnya saya kira buku ini tidak lebih dari terjemahan buku manual kamera yang di Saya cukup skeptis saat pertama kali melihat judul buku ini: Awalnya saya kira buku ini tidak lebih dari terjemahan buku manual kamera yang diadaptasi.

Jenis buku fotografi abal-abal. Ternyata saya salah. Lanjut ke daftar isi, saya mendapati sub-sub judul yang cukup detail dan cukup menarik.

Buku ini tidak membahas pengertian diafragma, kecepatan rana, atau iso secara khusus tapi situasi dan kondisi yang harus dihadapi dalam berbagai situasi pemoteretan dan tips dan triknya. Maka tidak salah jika menyebut buku ini adalah buku yang pragmatis. Kelby berusaha menempatkan dirinya sebagai teman Anda saat berburu foto padahal dia cuma menulis buku alih-alih menguliahi pembacanya dengan istilah-istilah asing yang mungkin terdengar keren tapi tidak berguna dalam pemotretan.

Kelby ingin agar pembaca dan buku ini seperti ia dan Anda pada saat memotret bersama. Alasan inilah yang menjadikan buku ini terasa padat dengan tips dan trik-nya. Tentang Mengapa dan Bagaimana dalam fotografi tentu tidak mudah dijelaskan dengan singkat karena cakupannya sangat luas.

Oleh karena itu buku ini mencoba mempersempitnya dengan membahas situasi-situasi yang paling umum dijumpai dalam fotografi seperti pernikahan, pemandangan, perjalanan, peristiwa olahraga, memotret manusia dan memotret bunga. Selain itu disertakan pula pembahasan mengenai masalah-masalah yang biasa dihadapi dalam pemotretan secara umum seperti masalah baterai, guncangan, etika pemotretan di tempat tertentu, dan lain-lain.

Pembahasan mengenai masalah-masalah yang biasa dihadapi dalam situasi-situasi di atas disajikan dengan padat dan cukup lengkap, setidaknya bagi amatir yang ingin menjadi profesional.

Pada bagian memotret lanskap misalnya, Kelby memberikan saran kapan harus menggunakan tripod, mengapa kita sebaiknya tidak terburu-buru memasang tripod begitu sampai di lokasi, saran untuk memotret hutan, gunung, dan air terjun. Kelby juga menjelaskan kapan sebaiknya aturan sepertiga diikuti, kapan pula harus dilanggar.

Saran-saran dan penjelasan Kelby disertai dengan contoh foto yang keren meskipun besarnya tidak satu halaman penuh. Meskipun hal ini agak mengurangi kemegahan foto, namun foto bagus masih tetap terasa bagus. Selain itu, penyertaan contoh foto ini memudahkan pembaca dalam memahami penjelasan Kelby dan bisa memprovokasi pembaca untuk membuat foto seperti yang ia buat.

Bahkan dalam bab terakhir, Kelby memberikan penjelasan foto per foto tentang bagaimana cara pengambilannya. Penjelasan ini tidak sekedar info diafragma atau kecepatan rana, namun juga saran untuk mengatasi kondisi-kondisi sulit yang mungkin dihadapi dalam pengambilan foto tersebut.

Menurut saya, predikat ini bukan sekedar bualan saja. Meskipun begitu, tentu saja buku ini tidak dapat membahas seluruh situasi pemotretan karena keterbatasan tempat. Nov 25, Cedric Jean-marie rated it liked it. I originally bought this trilogy for my wife when she got into photography, shortly after however I got suckered into it as well and am now more involved in it then she. Since we had these books I figured I'd give them a once over. I believe if the books reach their intended audience they are sure to be a valuable asset.

From the get go Kelby explains his thinking behind these books as a casual conversation between friends where he leaves out much or all of the theory and just tells you straight I originally bought this trilogy for my wife when she got into photography, shortly after however I got suckered into it as well and am now more involved in it then she.

From the get go Kelby explains his thinking behind these books as a casual conversation between friends where he leaves out much or all of the theory and just tells you straight up how to get the shots.

The topics range all aspects of photography from portraits, wedding photography, landscapes, sports, flash and studio tips, and so much more.

Each book weighs in under the page mark and every page is graced with a photo which quickly gives you an idea what the subject is about, if the title doesn't give it away. I like Scott and his method and am subscribed to his online training catalog of videos, unfortunately much of what is covered in the books I've already seen in his videos.

I did learn plenty despite feeling a little underwhelmed with the level of detail but I can't fault him for that as it was quite clear from the outset what his goal was when he wrote them and I say when keeping that in mind he's achieved that goal quite well.

I personally would have preferred more theory and detail but that isn't really the authors fault. I'm still glad I read them and recommend them to anyone looking for exactly what he describes.

Want to know how to get that effect where the subject is in focus but the background or foreground is out of focus known as depth of field or bokeh he'll tell you straight up how to do it.

Overall easy reads and they achieve what the author set out to do despite not meeting my entire needs I feel it would be unfair to give the books a bad score simply because I ignored the authors intent from the beginning.

For the pro or serious amateur on or two stars, for intermeidate photographers three and for novices four to five: This book has one photo "hint" or recommendation per page. If you are a pro or very serious amateur in digital photography you will get little out of the book.

Hence it may be of only a one or two star value. If you are an intermediate photographer you have probably heard much if not most of what is in the book.

Hence it may only be a three star value. If one is only a novice to d For the pro or serious amateur on or two stars, for intermeidate photographers three and for novices four to five: If one is only a novice to digital photography this book has plenty of good advice.

Hence for that group it would be a four to five star value.

The Digital Photography Book

It someone has intermediate to serious film experience but not digital , the book will provide some useful advice i. Hence for these people this book would have a two to three star value.

One minor weakness in the book is that the author spends too much time attempting to be humorous and mostly fails. He should reduce humor and save reader's valuable time as well as some trees. May 20, Lauren rated it liked it. This is a very light read and not something for someone who wants to know the ins and outs of photography. I would describe it as a book of handy hints and tips for getting a good shot composition-wise, as the emphasis is on the end result rather than the process.

If you want to learn about exposure, shutter speed et al look elsewhere first as this book merely touches on them. Admittedly, Kelby's writing style was rather wordy and I found myself scanning pages at times, trying to find the tips amo This is a very light read and not something for someone who wants to know the ins and outs of photography.

Admittedly, Kelby's writing style was rather wordy and I found myself scanning pages at times, trying to find the tips among the chit-chat. Still, I'm glad I read it and in the future, once I'm well versed in how to set up my camera, I will probably read the other volumes.

Sep 29, Jenna rated it it was amazing Shelves: I absolutely loved this book! It's full of so much useful information for amateurs like me who wish to learn more about photography. The book is very readable; interspersed with all the photography wisdom, know-how, and tips, are funny scenarios, sarcastic sentences, and downright silliness, that made me bust out laughing many times. The author, Scott Kelby, is a riot and very fun to read! I just wish I had read this book before the recent trip I took.

I will for sure be reading the other 3 book I absolutely loved this book! I will for sure be reading the other 3 books in this series and certainly before any future trips!! May 07, Antigone rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This is a great book but isn't for the advanced photographer He is an amazing read - very funny and direct. But again Also, he has an amazing blog you should subscribe to. And this week, I learned from his blog, all hi This is a great book but isn't for the advanced photographer And this week, I learned from his blog, all his books will be on sale an Barnes and Noble Look for them.

Jan 13, Karen rated it really liked it Shelves: Even though I am not a complete digital photography novice, I do have a lot to learn still, I looked at the reviews of this and decided to give it a go. It gives good practical advice which is written in an easy to understand manner.

The Digital Photography Book (Volume 1) by Scott Kelby

His humor may not be to everyone's taste, but it does lighten the mood of the book, making it very readable. It is the type of book that you can just delve into the sections that you want to find out more information about.

He does not waste time on technical explan Even though I am not a complete digital photography novice, I do have a lot to learn still, I looked at the reviews of this and decided to give it a go. He does not waste time on technical explanations but just writes what you have to do in order to achieve a certain target.

May 23, Amy Fisher rated it it was amazing. I loved it because it's written in such a way I can almost flip right to the page I'm looking for.

Nice large photo at the top of each page references what is taught there. Easy read style packed with much information! I get the author's desire to be funny and engaging, sometimes it's a little much is all. I'll be putting it in my gear bag to take with me. Time to practice these tips in the field! Jul 28, Hannah rated it really liked it. I have been into photography recently very original, I know and sometime last week, I decided to browse photography books.

Browsing turned to reading of course.

I think the guards at Powerbooks Greenbelt recognize me already. I certainly have picked up a lot of tips from the book. I like that it's very easy to read and doesn't use "photography jargon. Readers also enjoyed. Shelves: non-fiction , photography , paperbacks Although this book is indicated as being Volume 3, it is not a 3rd edition of the book and like Volume 2 is a continuation of tricks and tips.

Where I found that the Volume 1 book was excellent for beginners, Volume 2 was more geared towards more advanced photography skills and studio and portrait shooting. Volume 3 I found was actually also a good book for new photographers as well. While a beginner can read all books in the series I feel that Volume s 1 and 3 have more to offer them. Again this Although this book is indicated as being Volume 3, it is not a 3rd edition of the book and like Volume 2 is a continuation of tricks and tips.

Again this book is written as many other Scott Kelby books. He has a groaner sense of humour and it comes out in every chapter. He also has the ability to explain techniques in a very straight forward manner.

The tisp are very short usually one page and come right to the point. Volume 3 was not a disappointment and I took away a few tips from it as well. I find that if I re read these books every year I pick up or remind myself of something I may have forgotten. All in all I recommend these books to anyone who is getting into digital photography or may want to learn to get more out of their photography.
