If you’re not thrilled with the photos you’re getting from your digital camera–whether it’s a point-and-shoot or a DSLR–the answer isn’t a new camera. It’s learning to use the one you’ve got! After all, it’s not the camera that takes
great shots–it’s the person behind the camera. In Getting Started in Digital Photography: From Snapshots to Great
Shots, photographer and instructor Khara Plicanic teaches the basics of photography and digital camera functions
that you can apply to any camera, anywhere, any time– answering questions like: What do all those different modes mean and when do I use them? What’s a megapixel and why should I care?

Follow along with Khara, and you will:
Learn about shutter speed, aperture, and shooting modes Improve those yellow dingy photos of your kids’ indoor sporting events Fix the exposure on shots that are too dark or too bright Move beyond the Auto mode to take advantage of your camera’s settings Discover that the key to great shots is to learn your way around your camera
By the time you’re finished, you’ll know how to best use the features of whatever camera you already have to take
great shots. And once you’ve got the shots, show them off! Join the book’s Flickr group, share your photos, and
discuss how you get your own great shots at flickr.com/groups/gettingstartedfromsnapshotstogreatshots

Autofocus changed the way photos are taken, making it easier to capture and keep the subject in sharp focus. Since autofocus was first introduced, it has become much more complicated, offering different focus modes, focus types, and focus points. What started out as a way to simplify the photo-making process has turned into a complicated endeavor with numerous choices and settings.


A Photographer’s Guide to Focus and Autofocus: From Snapshots to Great Shots is here to answer all your questions about the focusing system in today’s cameras and their various autofocus modes. Photographer Alan Hess covers the simple basics of focus: manual focus versus autofocus, the best focus modes to use, and how focus works in both DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. Then he discusses more advanced topics, including autofocus sensor types, back-button autofocus, and focus for DSLR video.


There is much more to autofocus, and focus in general, than just pushing the shutter release button and hoping the image is sharp and in focus. With this book, you’ll learn how to get the right focus in your images, no matter what the occasion.

Follow along with your friendly and knowledgeable guide, and you will:

Learn the top ten things to know about focus, including how to use the focus controls on the camera, how to pick the autofocus point, and when to use pre-focus in your images Address common autofocus issues such as dealing with low contrast or low light, or shooting through obstacles like glass or a fence Develop troubleshooting techniques for what to do when the autofocus doesn’t work properly Work with both manual focus and autofocus and learn tricks to achieve better focus in video

And once you’ve got the shot, show it off! Join the book’s Flickr group to share your photos and tips at flickr.com/groups/focusandautofocusfromsnapshotstogreatshots


Scott Kelby, author of the top-selling digital photography book of all time, is back with an entirely new book in his popular series that picks up right where part 4 left off. It’s more of that “Ah ha—so that’s how they do it,” straight-to-the-point, skip-the-technojargon stuff you can really use today that made part 1 so successful.

In parts 1 through 4 of this series, the most popular chapter in the book has always been the last chapter: “Photo Recipes to Help You Get ‘The Shot’.” In each of those chapters, Scott shows a final image and then describes how to get that type of shot.

Here, in part 5, he gives you what you’ve been waiting for: an entire book of nothing but those amazing photo recipes. But, he took it up a big notch by adding a behind-the-scenes photo for every single recipe. Now you can see exactly how it was done, so you can get that exact same look every time.

In these extra pages, each spread allows you to dig in a little deeper and really unlock the power of these recipes. Scott breaks each spread into four segments: (1) he explains exactly what you’re seeing behind the scenes, (2) he lists all of his camera settings, and lens and lighting info—it’s all there, (3) he gives you his thought process, so you learn exactly why he does it this way, and (4) he shares all the post-processing in Lightroom or Photoshop that goes on after the shoot (this is something other books leave out). Plus, the whole book is packed with tips and insights you won’t find anywhere else.

This isn’t a book of theory, full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. This is a book on which button to push, which settings to use, and exactly how and when to use them. With around 100 of the most popular photographic “tricks of the trade,” the entire book is designed to get you shooting like a pro starting today. You’re gonna love it.

Brian & Janet Stoppee have incorporated their decades of daily, hands-on expertise at image-making plus their leading seminars and one-on-one training into the most comprehensive guide to photographic lighting available!

It's impossible to be successful in photography without a mastery of light. It's the basis of all things photographic. The Stoppees welcome the reader into their professional world with a conversational tone that makes you feel as if you are a member of their team in pre-production planning, out on a shoot, or back at their studio, in post-production. They've packed the book with full color, vibrant images and lighting diagrams that make the technology easy to quickly understand. This compendium of professional know-how shows you how to both manipulate nature's light and create natural-looking illumination with artificial light sources. Whether you're a professional photographer, you use photography in your profession, or you just want your images to look more professional, this book is your resource to creating far superior digital images.

You'll gain a greater understanding of:
.Light's Properties
.Digital Exposure
.Optics
.Metering
.Color
.Pre-Production
.Adobe Camera Raw
.Scanning
.Light Modifying Tools
.Support Systems
.Daylight Fluorescent
.HMI
.Wireless Battery Flash

...and much more, just like the world's top image-makers.
