5 stars/Non-Ficton; PhotographyBeyond Snapshots is a great book for anyone who has invested in a new digital SLR camera only to be overwhelmed by all the modes, functions and lens choices.Each chapter of this book highlights an individual feature of the camera and then gives instructions for when, why and how to use it in your own photography. With plenty of great images and encouragement, Devine and Mazey open the door to understanding and utilizing all the creative options the camera is capable of so you can finally capture the images you seek with confidence.This is definitely a "must-have" book for all digital SLR beginners or those wanting to improve their own photography.Highly Recommended.*As a side note: I have both the paper and digital copy of this book. Because of the improved photo quality and ease of use, I prefer the paper version.

I read a LOT of photography books to vary the pictures I love to take. This book was an enjoyable read and provided simple yet fun options to make a basic snapshot more interesting and fun, giving a picture personality. Would definitely recommend!
