The digital photography book part 4

Just received the Digital photography book part 4 written by Scott Kelby. He did it again a ton of tips and tricks for everyday photography, from Sport, people, studio and speed-light flash-photography to lenses and video gadgets, it is full of advise how to do this stuff. I enjoyed it a lot. His awkward way of introducing a chapter will not be to the liking of everyone as it has nothing to do with what that chapter is all about.  Its again a great resource. You will find some of the tips back in the workshops i give, no doubt about it.

Scott Kelby, author of The Digital Photography Book (the best-selling digital photography book of all time), is back with another follow-up to his smash best-seller, with an entirely new book that picks up right where volume 3 left off. It’s even more of that “Ah ha, so that’ s how they do it,” straight-to-the-point, skip-the-techno-jargon stuff people can really use today, and that made volume 1 the world’s best-selling book on digital photography.

This book truly has a brilliant premise, and here’s how Scott describes it: “If you and I were out on a shoot and you asked me, ‘Hey Scott, I want the light for this portrait to look really soft and flattering. How far back should I put this softbox?’ I wouldn’t give you a lecture about lighting ratios, or flash modifiers. In real life, I’d just turn to you and say, ‘Move it in as close to your subject as you possibly can, without it actually showing up in the shot.’ Well, that’s what this book is all about: you and I out shooting where I answer questions, give you advice, and share the secrets I’ve learned, just like I would with a friend–without all the technical explanations and techie photo speak.”

Reflector and WB target

I always show and use this reflector in my workshops. It folds to a nice size and is very easy to use as a reflector and as a white balance device that gives great results. Just try it out and use your custom white balance (Canon explanation) or white balance pre-set (Nikon explanation)

One side is as shown, white, black and gray, the other side is a silver reflector. This reflector can be hold in one hand and will not easy collapse like the round ones.
