I was recently giving the great pleasure of reviewing a photography book, but unlike so many other books out there on this subject Lorenzo's book had so much more to offer. In your life, you may come across a book that makes you stop and question where you are going. This is one such book. Having recently reached the grand age of 50, and like many others before me, it came as a shock to realise that so many years had drifted by. Reflecting on past achievements and lost opportunities was becom...
If you've read your Canon EOS 60D manual and are still looking for more information on how to use it then take a look at this book. This book gives you jargon-free explanations on how to use your camera and what each of the controls are for. The information given is easy to understand, the chapters are well written, feature helpful images and the book's small enough to fit in your bag next to your camera. The end of the book also has a section full of general shooting tips too which is ...
The Digital Photography Composition book is just one of the many helpful photography titles under the For Dummies series umbrella. If you've read one of the For Dummies titles before you'll already be used to the layout. If you're new to the series don't worry; the easy to follow tutorials are split into chapters that feature an image key, explained at the start of the book, to help you through the pages. Plenty of tips are crammed into the pages and the book even gives you a few challenges ...
If you're looking for a Nikon D3100 reference book that's easy to understand, is compact enough to fit in your camera bag, is well written and feature useful diagrams, then take a look at this book. It has less technical jargon than a manual but yet manages to cover the features of the camera in more detail. There's also a section that gives you basic photography tips which isn't something you'll get in the camera manual. It's not an inspiring book but it's one you should have on your s...
Do you find the manual too boring or not easy to understand? Well the digital field guide series is for you. The format's easy to follow and the book is well written and features useful diagrams. An added extra which you won't find in the manual are the hints and tips at the end of the book which cover basic shooting advice. It's not a book that's bursting with inspirational imagery that makes you want to grab your gear and go but it is a handy book to have that's definitely more useful t...
The book's title suggests it's for the 'older and wiser' among us but after flicking through the pages it's easy to see that anyone who's new to photography would be wise to put this book on their shelf. The jargon-free, easy to follow chapters start by addressing the real basic of digital photography before giving you advice on editing and printing photographs from your home computer. The font used is large, making the book easy to read and important information is highlighted by coloured b...
Sometimes the manual that's supplied with the camera is so full of technical jargon that you find it difficult to get past the first few pages.

As well as getting information about the specific camera the book is talking about you also get general tips on lighting, composition etc. ...

It's a fantastic little book that covers many aspects of photography in a clear, quick and easy to understand way.
When you open the cover of this book and find a pair of 3D glasses waiting for you it's not easy to stop yourself going 'cool'. However, don't get two excited as it's only for one image but the rest of the book isn't disappointing and is a rather comprehensive guide for those who use the Panasonic Lumix LX5. It's a more detailed manual with instructions on how to use your camera in a variety of situations.
