Scott Kelby, author of the best-selling digital photo book of all time, is back with a brand new book in his popular series that picks up exactly where Part 4 left off. It`s more than "ha ha - here`s how they do it" , straight to the point, without the techno jargon stuff you can actually use today that made Part 1 so successful. In parts 1 through 4 of this series, the most popular chapter in the book has always been the last chapter: " Photo Recipes That Help You Get `The Shot`." In each of these chapters, Scott shows one last picture and then describes how to take it Kind of take. Here, in part 5, it gives you what you`ve been waiting for: a whole book of nothing more than these awesome photo recipes. But he made it even better by adding a behind-the-scenes photo for every single recipe. Now you can see exactly how it was done so that you get the exact same look every time. On these additional pages, you can dive a little deeper with each spread and really unleash the power of these recipes. Scott divides each path into four segments: (1) explains exactly what you see behind the scenes, (2) lists all of his camera settings, as well as lens and light information - it`s all there, (3) gives you the its thought process, so you know exactly why it`s doing it, and (4) it shares all post-shot post-shot processing in Lightroom or Photoshop (this is omitted in other books). Plus, the entire book is packed with tips and insights you won`t find anywhere else. This is not a theoretical book full of confusing technical terms and detailed concepts. This is a book about which key to press, which settings to use, and how and when to use them. With around 100 of the most famous photographic “tricks of the trade”, the entire book is designed so that you can now take photos like a pro. You will love it.
