OK, so you have a digital camera. You might even have a great digital camera with all the bells and whistles. You paid extra to get the good stuff right? It has tons of memory, and image stabilization and digital and optical zoom. So, why are all the pictures blurry? How come they don’t look awesome?
If you just bought a digital camera, or even if you have had one for awhile, you may have missed a very important accessory. It’s called “The Digital Photography Companion” by Derrick Story. I wish I had gotten this book years ago.
This book is easy to read and has all kinds of great tips and facts. It also tells you how to take awesome pictures. For example, I now know what RAM Buffer is. I also know now how to choose Exposure Composition settings (and why I would need to).
There are also lots of cool tricks. For example, Story says you can use a bit of fabric from a set of knee high stockings as a filter for a picture rather than go out and spend hundreds of dollars on a new diffusion filter lens.
It’s easy to pick up a digital camera and take pictures. However, it’s very difficult to shoot pictures “like a pro”. This book will show you how. It’s well-written, and most importantly easy to understand.
Of course, you can find it on Amazon. It’s on sale right now for about $17.00. What a deal! I set up a link to the product page below:
