Great "how-to" book that I'll be studying more as I hopefully develop my skills.
I also liked how the author included a section for more advanced techniques. Just in case I get to that level, I can still use this book with his easy instructions to achieve a more creative photo. Dec 25, Miriam rated it it was amazing. Great book for beginning photographers. Simple and easy explainations on how to get great pictures without being too experienced.
Lots of pictures also, and one really helpful thing is that all the pictures in the book are featured again at the end of the book giving you all the camera installations you need to use to get similar photograph. Aug 28, Maci Dierking rated it really liked it Shelves: photography. Jim explains in easy non complicated terms the basics of photography. He gives you assignments to go and practice with helpful tips. It was also nice that he included all the camera setting taken with the photo's in the book so you could better understand what worked.
Within just a few days my pictures improved dramatically. Jan 20, Jessica Bain rated it really liked it. This book featured many invaluable lessons when it comes to photography. It shows photos demonstrating each setting or tip, which is extremely helpful for a visual learner like me. I would definitely recommend this book! Nice, easy read book with some great information on camera settings and composition without reading like a boring textbook.
The example images were inspiring and I learned a great deal. I can't wait to put the information to good use. Jan 09, Julia rated it it was amazing.
Great book for the beginner. Easy to follow and understand with photo examples. Jul 03, Beth rated it it was amazing. Very useful book. I read it in combination with the manual for my Canon and point and shoot, and in three days I am taking pictures I am really happy with. Highly recommended. Aug 25, Jason rated it it was amazing.
Apr 19, Madison rated it it was amazing. I read this back in but I have recommend this book so many times and forgot the name so I am adding it to goodreads so I dont forget. The best book for an intro photographer. Jim breaks down the process to make it simpler. The book can be useful to people who do and do not have a dslr camera. This book has greatly improved my skillset.
I have my travel photos as backgrounds on my computer at work and frequently get compliments from coworkers on it. Jan 17, Alice-Anne rated it really liked it. This book is for those with a digital point and shoot and DSLR which some of us--including myself-- use as a point and shoot, right?
I came away with a better understanding of the settings on my camera, how to use "P" or Program I'm not advanced enough to do manual , and most importantly, how to compose shots better and use light or the lack of light better.
I would recommend it for beginnings like myself who want to take their photos to the next level. Oh, and this goes without say This book is for those with a digital point and shoot and DSLR which some of us--including myself-- use as a point and shoot, right? Oh, and this goes without saying, but I loved looking at the photos in this book, too.
I think this was generally a strong book. There's a lot of good, general information here. Be aware two chapters apply mostly to DSLR and high-end compact cameras. The rest of the book is appropriate for any kind of camera. I just got back into digital photography and consider myself a novice.
Having said that, my general attitude is that if I learn one or two really good tips from a book then reading the book was worth it. Oct 09, Cristina rated it really liked it. This is a great book for beginner photographers like me. I don't want to become a professional photographer, I just want to take better pictures and this book gives great tips and information for users of both point and shoot and DSLR cameras.
Feb 08, Sha Hafez rated it really liked it. Mar 21, Rachel rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction. I enjoyed this so much! I learned the theory about how to obtain some of the photos that I've so admired, and maybe even how to take some of those pictures! I can't wait to get out and get started! Oct 21, Lourdes rated it it was ok. Very old edition and i pretty much already new the basics.
Mar 06, Anshika rated it liked it. A great book for beginners. Great tips on composition. It has all the do's and dont's listed simply. Not a very detailed insight into exposure, but then again that is not for beginners. Nov 07, Petyo Ivanov rated it really liked it. Works as advertised. Simple and concise tips and guides, good examples.
Sep 18, Amy added it Shelves: read-but-will-read-again. Great book!! One of the most helpful explanations of the basics I have read!
