Description de l'ouvrage

25 février 2012
Scott Kelby, author of The Digital Photography Book (the best-selling digital photography book of all time), is back with another follow-up to his smash best-seller, with an entirely new book that picks up right where volume 3 left off. It's even more of that "Ah ha, so that' s how they do it," straight-to-the-point, skip-the-techno-jargon stuff people can really use today, and that made volume 1 the world's best-selling book on digital photography.

This book truly has a brilliant premise, and here's how Scott describes it: "If you and I were out on a shoot and you asked me, 'Hey Scott, I want the light for this portrait to look really soft and flattering. How far back should I put this softbox?' I wouldn't give you a lecture about lighting ratios, or flash modifiers. In real life, I'd just turn to you and say, 'Move it in as close to your subject as you possibly can, without it actually showing up in the shot.' Well, that's what this book is all about: you and I out shooting where I answer questions, give you advice, and share the secrets I've learned, just like I would with a friend--without all the technical explanations and techie photo speak."

Each page covers a single concept on how to make your photography better. Every time you turn the page, you'll learn another pro setting, tool, or trick to transform your work from snapshots into gallery prints. If you're tired of taking shots that look "okay," and if you're tired of looking in photography magazines and thinking, "Why don't my shots look like that?" then this is the book for you.

This isn't a book of theory, full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. This is a book on which button to push, which setting to use, and when to use it. With another 200 of the most closely guarded photographic "tricks of the trade," this book gets you shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos every time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 HUGE Improvement over 3rd - GREAT - Favorite to Date! 7 mars 2012
Par javajunki - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
First, I will admit up front that I'm a fan of Scott Kelby and own all three prior "Digital Photography" books 1-3 as well as more than my fair share of photography books in general. Several dozen at least with dozens more that weren't sufficient to rate as "keepers".

Now, having said that, I actually was disappointed with the third volume in the set as it seemed redundant. Whereas 1 and 2 provided terrific basic information and seemeed to build up on it, the 3rd rehashed more than anything else. I'm thrilled to say that is NOT the case with this version (Part 4).

If you are just getting started with digital photography, there is no better place to begin than the first books in this series and when I originally purchased them, that was exactly my situation. I had owned a nice camera years and years ago but hadn't made the transition to digital. It's now been several years and my skills - as well as the digital camera's - have grown considerably over the years. This book meets that need with ooodles of fun, exciting and interesting techniques that take an average photographer to the next level.

I'm by no means a pro or anywhere near it but have improved enough that people are now commenting or even asking for photo's now and then. Still, I lack the bag of tricks to really make a shot stand out. This book gives great short, concise tips on how to achieve those nifty shots without all the confusion.

For example, want to know how to get three or so images of the same person in one shot? IT's on page 7. Using Hot Shoe - ohhhhh THANK YOU! I've bought other books that seemed more like a course in terminology...this breaks it down into short, simple tips. Ditto for white balancing, star and light trails plus much more.

The recipe section is superb but most importantly, this book answers many of the questions I have as someone who has gone beyond the absolute basics but is still far from pro. Over the last few years I've added several len options but always debate which is my best "walk around" option...it's in here! Why jpeg looks better than RAW - it's in here too. It's like Kelby walked around following me for the past several months and made a list of all my personal mistakes - then put them into a nice, easy to read, example filled volume.

Without a doubt, this is my absolutely FAVORITE Of all 4 volumes and a def "keeper". Perfect timing for the spring season and can't wait to get out there and try out a few new tricks.

GREAT book! However, if you are an absolute beginner, start with the earlier books in the set and go from there.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Really Helpful Photo Book for Amateur and Pro Alike 9 mars 2012
Par BostonAaron - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
My recommendation: If you own a DSLR and want to improve your photographic technique and produce better pictures then you should buy this book (Part 4), even if you have Volume 1. I'm an amateur photographer and this book contains information on how I can improve travel photos (be ready at sunrise and sunset, which I knew from experience and from reading his other books), improve pictures of people (don't cut off their legs below the knees and elbows), and suggestions on landscapes (use a wide angle lens and get up close to capture something interesting in the foreground). For group shots get on a step ladder so that you can see all the faces and for head and shoulder shots, use a long lens (say 200mm) to get blurry backrounds and complementary facial proportions. These are just some of the recommendations the book contains that amateurs can use. For professionals there are lighting hints and methods for handling people that will produce better pictures.

This book is written in the usual Scott Kelby style. Each chaper has a beginning page with Scott's humor which some may find tiring but is certainly clever. The rest of the chapter has suggestions usually one on a page with a color picture or pictures illustrating the point. The writing style is casual with the emphasis on DSLR photography since he discusses properties of different lenses. But even point and shoot camera users can learn something about technique and using different angles to improve their pictures. There is a reason that Scott Kelby has written so many books on photography: They are extremely helpful and direct. Now if only he could get his humor under control...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Digital Photography book 4 by Scott Kelby! 7 mars 2012
Par RphZiggy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
If anyone in their right mind does not like Scott Kelby, leave the room, leave photography, shoot leave the planet. I have laughed non stop at his humor in writing all of his digital photography books! I have the complete set and this is the 4th in that series. You get everything in each one of his books, now there are some parts with which yes, I will personally never use, sports photography esp., but what Scott does is gives you this sense that he is right there guiding you to be a better photographer, and get that tack sharp pic. I have use his books as both references to other books and to go back and see what I missed if I didn't feel that a pic came out just great. He language is easy to understand, I'm not dumb by any means, but sometimes if you are like me still just an kid, wet behind the ears, in the world of photography. You will not have any problems understanding Scott's teacher mentality. I highly rated this book because it just goes a little deeper into HDR and some other aspects of portrait and model photography.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 As good as other books in the series.. Phew! 10 mars 2012

To be honest, I was afraid that Scott Kelby would come out with a crappy book because he can - it would've sold well, anyway. Thankfully, that's not the case - this book is as good as, if not better than other books in the same "The Digital Photography" series. Phew!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing 11 mars 2012
Par Deji Odetoyinbo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is, by far, the least useful of Scott Kelby's "Digital Photography" series. I consider myself a Kelby fan; I bought and read the first 3 volumes and regard their influence on my photography as as profound and positive.

I bought the Kindle version of Volume 4 and it appears to me that this particular electronic version was released without anyone bothering to view it on a device. To start, Its formatting is hideous and distracting; section titles are seemingly arbitrarily re-located to the bottom of the page which precedes the section content. You end up with something like "Getting Both What's in Front & Back in Focus" followed by a half page of empty white space which is followed, on the succeeding page, by the photograph which references that section heading.
However, the most irritating of the formatting snafus are the line breaks that are inserted (again, arbitrarily) after some fraction characters. The book is pock marked with examples like this;

"....I crank it up to 1/2 power.....It it's too bright, I drop it to

1/8

power and take a test shot"
Why, I wondered, did the second fraction attract the useless line break that the first one didn't?
If you think this is minor, remember it's a photography book which, by definition is littered with references to shutter speed. After enduring, on a singly page, a formatting mess like;
"speed needs to stay at a maximum of

1/250

of a second... if it goes above

1/250

of a second, you'll see...

1/250

of a second...way above

1/250

of a second..."

you'll wonder, through your pulsating, Excedrin-class headache, whether it's too much to expect that some editor, somewhere, would trouble himself or herself with proof-reading the thing on an electronic device prior to release.

The above are irritating. By far the most significant letdown in my opinion, is the sheer paucity of fresh material. He dredges up material which is adequately covered in the earlier volumes and regurgitates them excitedly as if he was blessing you with stuff that's really new and interesting. I had to re-read the introduction to reassure myself that I did NOT assume incorrectly that this book was intended for readers who'd gone through Volumes 1 - 3.
This is seriously bothersome and totally unlike Kelby. After eagerly devouring every page of the first 3 volumes multiple times over the last couple of years, I looked forward even more eagerly to this one. I ended up with very little that was informative, inspiring or even (and this is shocking for a Kelby book), witty.

It seemed to me, as I slogged my way through each chapter that Mr. Kelby was labouring through this volume as would an author who had unthinkingly, a few years back, inked a commitment with his publishers to deliver a 4th volume by a set date without inserting a clause which would allow him an out if he had acummulated insufficient material. I am certain that he realised that he could not remotely approach the standards (of content or delivery) that his first 3 volumes had established; I'm shocked that he proceeded to release a volume which will surely sully his excellent reputation.
