Wouldn't you like to take better pictures, get control over your camera, and even make artistic photographic compositions?
Wouldn't it be the most incredible thing if you could bypass all the beginner mistakes and shave a few years off the learning process?
If you are like me, then you will be pleased to learn that becoming a masterful photographer is a lot easier than it looks. The truth is that, if you can press a button, then you can take great pictures!
That is why I am thrilled to share with you my first book, The Absolute Beginner's Guide to Taking Great Photos - published by Random House.
My book gives you a bare bones basic introduction to the art of photography in a fun and friendly way. If you have been intimidated by thick, technical references on photography, The Absolute Beginner's Guide to Taking Great Photos is for you.
What You'll Learn
This book guides you away from the point-and-pray method of taking pictures to shooting with confidence. In this simple and clear guide, you will learn:
* How to compose your picture with a more artful eye
* The top qualities that winning photos exhibit
* Numerous tips and secrets of the trade for consistently getting better results... and much, much more...
It offers guidance on everything from buying a camera to correcting photo mishaps. In addition, it gives you many step-by-step projects to put your new ideas into practice. All in a fun and friendly style that makes the book a joy to read.
What They're Saying
Bryan Peterson, author of Understanding Exposure and Learning to See Creatively, comments, "If I had had Jim's book when I started photography, I could have easily cut two years out of my 'beginner mode.' What a great base for every beginning photographer to build on!"
And Jim Brandenburg, famous for his amazing photographs of wolves, says, "Photography is now more important than ever in our personal lives. As a professional, I wish I had had this book when I started my career."
Let's face it, in other books and resources, you often have to dig deep to find the answers you are seeking. In this book, however, you will find the most helpful explanations, offered in a fun and friendly manner, right at your fingertips.
This guidebook is also great for serious photographers - those of you who prefer to "make" rather than "take" photos. You get all the tips in a quick and compact reference. Better yet, you get a fun little book to toss at those friends who keep asking you the *basic* questions about photography.
