They say, "A picture is worth a thousand words." This adage could not be more true in the world of digital photography where most of the costs accrued are done up front with the purchase of the equipment and the photographer has only to snap photo after photo with only card size limiting his efforts. However, what if once the photos are downloaded, that magic moment that presented itself for immortality was never adequately captured? The mood is wrong; the colors faded; the shadows wax ineffectually. …

'101 Quick and Easy Secrets to Create Winning Photographs' is EXACTLY what the title says it is and THAT is a good thing!! The approach is simple enough but I hadn't seen a cookbook like this before for photography and I was very happily surprised!    Filled with nearly 250 pages of content and FULL COLOR high glossy photos throughout, this book is broken up into 15 chapters of content:    01. Making Photographs Look 3D  02. Painting With Light  03. …

This is a nice beginning photography book that covers many important aspects of photography. I was expecting it to be very "technical" because it was labeled a "reference" textbook, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was written more casually and went much "deeper" than many beginner photo books. I think this is because the author concentrates a lot on covering artistic concepts in addition to technical explanations. Coming from an Art background, I enjoyed reading this book because it illustrated …

Matthew Bamberg has style: he has looked through many lenses in his life as a photographer and in this richly colorful, very well illustrated book he shares his secrets of his success in a manner that encourages and never threatens practitioners of the art of photography - from beginners to advanced professionals. His technique is to keep the words at a minimum and the examples of his many discussions at assisting the man or woman behind the camera at a maximum. His own beautiful photographs of …

I enjoy photography as a hobby, and often read photography related books. The books I choose are typically of a technical nature so I can better understand the tools I use or about composition so I can improve my creative eye. When asked to read and review 101 Quick and Easy Secrets to Create Winning Photographs, I was excited for the opportunity even though I felt I was more advanced than the audience for the book.    This book is designed to show beginner to intermediate photographers …

As should be obvious from the title this book is a collection of tips for taking better images. Composition, lighting, perspective, camera settings, polarizing filters and post processing (Phototshop) all get their due. For the novice or intermediate photographers who wonder why their shots just don't look as good as they thought they ought to, it should be of great help.    All the tips or "secrets" are presented clearly with illustrative photos. That's both the strength and …
