Photography Halps!

When I bought my baby, my fancy-pants DSLR, I renewed my love of all things photography. As one who is self-taught from back in the day (with film!) (actual film) (you know, the kind that needs developing) (the expense was intense) (oy), I can stand a refresher and what better way to do that than with an easy to understand book?

Product Description:

Photography is now more popular than ever thanks to the rapid development of digital cameras. Read This If You Want to Take Great Photographs is for this new wave of DSLR dabblers and users of compact system, and bridge cameras. It contains no graphs, no techie diagrams and no camera club jargon. Instead, it inspires readers through iconic images and playful copy packed with hands-on tips.

Split into five sections, the book covers composition, exposure, light, lenses, and seeing. Images taken by master photographers – including Henri Cartier- Bresson, Sebastião Salgado, Fay Godwin, and Martin Parr – serve to illustrate points and encourage readers to try out new ideas.

Today’s aspiring photographers want immediacy and see photography as an affordable way of expressing themselves quickly and creatively. This book answers that need, teaching readers how to take photographs using professional techniques.

About the Author:

Henry Carroll studied photography at the Royal College of Art and his work has been featured in a number of international exhibitions and publications. Building on his experience teaching aspiring photographers of all ages, Henry founded, one of the UK’s leading providers of photography holidays and courses.

  3. Gonna have to add this to the amazon wish list! Its been so long since I did anything OTHER than blog photography that some of my skills/knowledge has gone the way of the dodo bird :S

  4. I took a class online when I got my first digital and could use an update. Lost a lot of my photos when I got a new computer. Makes me ill. I have tried every way I know to find them. That is the kind of book I am looking for.

  5. Sounds like a great book. Saw this on You’re Gonna Love It Link up

  6. My daughter is a photography student so when she’s home I get great pictures (she takes them) when she’s away , not so much! I need some pointers that’s for sure!
    I too remember film, there was nothing quite like that packet of photos and how you just couldn’t wait to flick through and see what you ‘d got. I feel sorry for the kids nowadays, they will never know that !
