The digital photography book part 4

March 17, 2012 Posted by Blips

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.”

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."

Each page covers a single concept on how to make your photography better. Every time you turn the page, you'll learn another pro setting, tool, or trick to transform your work from snapshots into gallery prints. If you're tired of taking shots that look "okay," and if you're tired of looking in photography magazines and thinking, "Why don't my shots look like that?" then this is the book for you.

This isn't a book of theory, full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. This is a book on which button to push, which setting to use, and when to use it. With another 200 of the most closely guarded photographic "tricks of the trade," this book gets you shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos every time.

Reflector and WB target

March 15, 2012 Posted by Blips

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.

 




Reflectors are used in the studio to adjust the light hitting your subject. You can brighten, warm up, or remove shadows using them. These hand-held reflectors allow you to easily adjust the lighting on the fly and are easy to transport. They are great for photography on the move.

Two different sides provide different functions: Black/Grey/White: makes digital photos more color balanced; Silver: brighten the picture
24" in size
Grip is comfortable to hold
Folds easily to fit in its case
Case is black heavy duty material with a sturdy zipper.
