Scott Kelby is President of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals 'NAPP' and Editor-in-Chief of both Photoshop User and Layers magazines. He is also an excellent photographer in his own right. As such, he is not only highly knowledgeable about the ins and outs of photography, but he is also very aware of the needs of aspiring image makers at all photography skill 'and budget' levels. For those of you who have already read Volume 1 of The Digital Photography Book, this is more of the same: more of Scott¿s quirky sense of humor, companionable instructional narratives, and excellent photographic tips. This book also continues Scott¿s concern for all of us not being made out of money. In Volume 2, he follows his earlier practice of offering varyingly priced equipment alternatives to accomplish the book¿s photographic tasks. For those of you who haven¿t read Scott¿s first volume 'which I highly recommend' in what I¿m sure will be a continuing series, not to worry. Volume 2 is a stand-alone book that offers a completely different set of photography tips from his book 1. In this volume, Scott¿s nine chapters cover the use of flash, building a home studio, and portrait, landscape, macro, wedding, and travel photography. He also includes two general chapters on getting overall better photos and recipes for specific types of images, from silky still water to professional-looking product shots. Scott describes his narrative style as the advice he¿d give a friend if he were there while he or she were working to create an image: folksy, but still reasonably directive 'but not bossy'. And as with all of Scott¿s books, The Digital Photography Book, Volume 2 includes an associated Web site that offers valuable information and relevant links. And this time, Scott has actually put the introduction to his book on the site, so you can get a flavor for the book before even cracking its cover. As with most of his books, Scott Kelby assume his readers have at least a good familiarity with their current cameras and a desire to go beyond point and shoot photography. If this is true of you, then I thoroughly recommend The Digital Photography Book, Volume 2.

If you have a reasonable grasp on the mechanics of SLR /DSLR this is an enjoyable series . I like Scott's style of writing , it keeps you entertained as well as educating you in the art of photography. Buy all 4 as a set and save a few bucks, you won't regret it.

If you've never read a book by Scott Kelby, you're in for a real treat! Not only is he extremely knowledgable about all things photography and photoshop, he is a really funny guy and writes a great, easy-to-read book. Before you know it, you'll be finished with the book and you'll know a great deal about photography.

Contains some useful information. One of the better books. Probably geared more toward beginning photographer, which is probably the point of the book anyway. I would recommend.

a great resource for how to get more professional looking shots that a novice can understand. (Written with the understanding that the reader owns and understands the basic workings of a DSLR camera. )
