Overview

Now that you've bought an amazing new DSLR, you need help that goes beyond the camera manual! Some of the key components to taking better images are understanding exposure, composition, and black and white photography.

This special bundle for Barnes and Noble (an incredible value at US $45; bought separately the total would be $US 95!) includes:

Exposure: From Snapshots to Great Shots (book)
Jeff Revell covers the basics of light, including how it works, and how to see it. He walks the reader through one of the most important photographic principles—the exposure triangle: ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture.

Composition: From Snapshots to Great Shots (DVD)
Nicole S. Young starts with the basics of composition—such as the popular rule of thirds—and continues with exploring how the elements of color, shape, angles, and contrast work to create compelling images.

Black and White: From Snapshots to Great Shots (DVD)
John Batdorff starts with the basics—composition, light, contrast, and textures—and when to choose black and white. Once you've captured those shots, John takes you step-by-step through color conversion and post-processing in Lightroom. He also covers the cool enhancements that can be added with Nik Software Silver Efex Pro.

Together the book and the videos (which are shot both on location and in the studio), cover all key camera features that affect exposure, composition, and black and white photography—regardless of what type of DSLR you have!
