Review

"I'm the founder of photo.net (started in 1993), so I've seen a lot of photography tutorials. This might be my favorite so far in terms of density of practical information...A very functional book designed for busy people." -- Philip Greenspun "Amazon"

Product Description

Amazon's #1 rated and best-selling digital photography book, and the first ever Gold Honoree of the Benjamin Franklin Digital Award, gives you five innovations no other book offers:

1. FREE VIDEO TRAINING. 100 videos totaling 12+ HOURS of video training integrated into the book’s content (requires Internet access). Travel around the world with Tony and Chelsea as they teach you hands-on. Appendix A lists the videos so you can use the book like an inexpensive video course.

2. TEACHER AND PEER SUPPORT. After buying the book, you get access to the private Stunning Digital Photography Readers group on Facebook where you can ask the questions and post pictures for feedback from Tony, Chelsea, and other readers. It’s like being able to raise your hand in class and ask a question! Instructions are in the introduction.

3. FREE LIFETIME UPDATES. This book is regularly updated with new content (including additional videos) that existing owners receive for free. Updates are added based on reader feedback and questions, as well as changing photography trends and new camera equipment. This is the last photography book you'll ever need.

4. HANDS-ON PRACTICES. Complete the practices at the end of every chapter to get the real world experience you need.

5. 100+ PRACTICE QUESTIONS. Ungraded tests teach you to apply what you've learned.

The first book that an amateur photographer must read is Tony's book.
I have been through 3 chapters of this books and already learnt many tips that i didn't knew.Tony explains all the photographic terms in simple language,He cover all types of photography
a)portraits
b)animals
c)macro
d)weddings
e)landscape photography
f)Underwater photography
He also has dedicated a chapter to solve common a Amateur photographer may face while making pictures.
I think next book that a newbie must read is Understanding exposure by Bryan peterson which covers the 3 most important aspects of photography:
a)aperture
b)shutter speed
c)ISO
Overall tony and chelsea have done a very good job here.A very nice book.

Hello Dear Friends,

I ordered this book on October 6th 2015 and got it delivered on October 20th 2015. The book quality is very good (but the packing from the seller was not so good... its OK OK).

On the book it is written as 12 Hours of Video (Please don't expect a video CD) the link is given in the book, just we need to use any web browser and give the link and watch the video (I was confused, so just a friendly reminder.)

The content of the book is sooooooooooo goodddddddddd (Worth for the money paid). Hope I will become a good photographer''...

If you can afford this book, please do that and enjoy taking good photos.

Take Care''''.. Byeeeeeeeeeeee''''

This should be marked as the book for any amature photographer. A good brush up and concepts on how to click a nice picture, what your camera can do and what are its limitations.

Suggest equipment, alternative ways to do things. Lots of example with lots of pictures.

Very well written and readable even for a person who is not into books (like me), and videos links are there to brush up the concepts so you grab them and then stick on to them.

Overall if you are a amature or beginner photographer go for it, for professionals it might be a good refresher.

The book covers everything from basic camera modes to information and technique about various photography genres. Hours and hours of video included in this book perfectly supplements the words. I would highly recommend this book to anybody who wants to learn photography.

This book is Amazing. I ordered the same on 23rd of September. Expected delivery was on Monday. I got it on 25th of September. So fast and efficient service by Amazon. This book features lot of things. I am not amateur, I know what is shutter speed, Aperture, ISO. I know depth of field, composition, Perspective. But it's still so helpful with lighting techniques. This is so easy to understand. It helps gives correct direction to carry on experiments. I would like to say its kinda essential for amateurs and professionals also!!

I am planning to get my first DSLR camera and want to learn basics of photography. This book suits my requirements perfectly.
There may be better books on photography that I may not be aware. However, I learnt quite a few things from this book and
am happy. Book has links to online free videos ... then you may ask why purchase the book at all. The book gives you the
proper sequence for watching the videos and Kindle edition helps... Teaches you how to click sharp and clear images and also how to make your photos interesting. Overall a good book.
