The Sony SLT-A77: The Unofficial Quintessential Guide

As a long-time Sony SLT-A55 user and recent Sony SLT-A77 purchaser, I know the complexity of both cameras and I also know the deficiencies of Sony camera manuals. The manuals, more or less, cover the capabilities of the cameras, but make many assumptions about the knowledge level of the camera users. Perhaps, more important, the manual writers assume all purchasers of Sony cameras have the same familiarity with both digital photography and camera technology. Of course, that’s far from the realit...

Creative EVIL Photography

OK, just so we can be clear from the start, this book has nothing to do with becoming an evil photographer in the sense that you want to take over the world and not be nice to anyone any more. What it does mean is you'll become better at using mirrorless cameras also known as Electronic-Viewfinder-Interchangeable-Lens (EVIL for short). There's a lot to work through in this book with a wealth of information covering various aspects of EVIL photography. It begins by telling the reader what an ...

Practical HDR (2nd Edition)

There doesn't seem to be much middle ground when it comes to HDR as people will either love it or hate it. However, in the latest revised edition of David Nightingale's book, all based around the use and application of HDR, even those who say they dislike it may soon be warming to the idea of using this technique in some of the work they produce once they've read a few pages. The book is full of excellent, practical examples of how HDR, when used correctly, can work and help the photographer...
