The one thing this book doesn't have that some readers might want is a detailed explanation of photography terms, science and deep technical issues, and that was fine with me. There are plenty of books for that. What Kelby does is tell you how to get a great photo, especially in the most common settings (sunsets, weddings, landscapes, sports, portraits...). The logic is simple for each and he even provides simple setups for different types of photos. I used his little laundry list of settings for some sunset shots in Hawaii and they came out absolutely stunning. I was never able to nail that before reading this book.
Highly recommended. Once you read it and apply the concepts, you'll suddenly realize how much further you can take your pictures when you decide to move beyond a mobile phone or a point-and-shoot.
Chapter 1, about getting sharp pictures, is a must read. I would also suggest reading chapter 11, “Ten Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me”. Other then those two, use the book as a primer to get ready for all the different types of photos you will be taking. Weddings, flowers, landscapes, sports travel and people photography are all covered. In addition, a couple of helpful techniques chapters will guide you to creating and sharing your photos.
The guidance is short and straight to the point. Each page of each chapter presents clear steps to getting prepared and executing your photo shoot, from framing to camera settings. A must for new digital photographers and a great refresher for more experienced ones.
