While I’m a huge fan of Scott Kelby’s The Digital Photography Book, there are some people who just want a quick overview (or refresher) of the basics of photography. This eBook has the same “get to the point” style as Kelby’s book, but it offers a little more depth on the subjects it covers. Here’s a quick peek at the table of contents to show what’s inside:
This book just gets to the point about what you need to know in a very visual and friendly way. While the book does have a Canon-centric approach (which is no surprise since this is the author of the best book on Canon’s DPP), he’s done a good job of tossing in some diagrams for the D600, D7100, X20, and NEX-7 to help translate terminology for readers coming from different camera platforms.
Special offer – only £5
There is a special offer in place. You can use the code july2 to receive a discount of £2 on Mastering Photography. The discount also applies to the bundles and the other eBooks. The code won't expire until midnight, July 31.
This is a nicely laid out book and a simple read for a bargain basement price. What’s more you can read it on any device that can read PDF’s, so it’s a great field guide to keep on your phone too! It’s dirt cheap, so it’s worth a look if you’d like to have the basics of photography at close reach the next time you go out shooting.
