The Digital Photography Book, Part 5 (Barnes & Noble Edition)by Scott Kelby
The Digital Photography Book, Part 5, has the same look and feel of the first four books in this Scott Kelby-authored bestselling series, but there is something in this book that's just a little bit different. In the first four volumes, Kelby included a chapter at the end of each book, filled with "photo recipes" showing exactly how he "got the shot." Over the years, many readers have commented that it's their favorite chapter in the books, that it's the most fun and the most educational. So, for Part 5, Scott has created the entire book in this "photo recipes" style. Each two-page spread shows the reader the final photo, as well as a behind-the-scenes image and text that describes exactly how he got the shot.
In this Part 5, Scott devotes entire chapters to photographing people (in natural light and in the studio), sports, weddings, landscapes, travel, hot shoe flash, and nature photography. Readers will be shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos in no time.
Also included in this exclusive Barnes & Noble book is a unique code that gives you access to two Scott Kelby videos that follow the same "photo recipes" approach to showing how Scott "gets the shot" with exclusive behind-the-scenes looks at how Scott lights his images. Photo Recipes Live: Behind the Scenes: Your Guide to Today's Most Popular Lighting Techniques, Parts 1 and 2, offers four hours of great video instruction, and it makes a great complement to The Digital Photography Book, Part 5.

I have read the first four books cover to cover and am in the process of doing the same with this, the fifth book. I am enjoying the unique format of this book in that Scott Kelby includes a picture of him taking the picture on the left page with the actual final photo on the right page along with substantial (and entertaining) discussion of what was done and how you can get similar results. I was asked to cover a family reunion for a friend and I easily found entries throughout the series that helped me take some very good large group photos and then casual photos of the party and of the food table. Members of the family appreciated my prints and I received a number of compliments. I do recommend the entire series to any serious amateur.
