Book Review: Photo Nuts and Shots

NOTICE: there is currently a 25% rebate going on until the end of the week. So if you are interested, get it now! Promotion is over, sorry! Photo Nuts and Shots is a how-to guide for the novice photographer who would like to learn more about taking better pictures. I have received a few emails from people asking me to talk more about the basis of photography, this is it. After reading the camera manual (of the first book in the series, Photo Nuts and Bolts), this is the book first time shooter should read before going out and shoot.

What is covered?

Pretty much everything! But very superficially. The ebook gives inspiration and tips and shows how using the various variables can yield different results. It gives the readers a working photographic vocabulary enabling them to expand their learning process afterward. When starting something new, it is always hard to know what you don’t know. By covering pretty much everything this ebook gives a good idea to the novice of what is out there for them to learn, experiment and master.

Layout and presentation

The eBook is very easy to read. Most topic are covered in a page or two and there are a lot of illustrations. The pictures are not as impressive as some I have seen else where and a bit too manga-ish for my taste but I am a picky guy.

Should you get this book?

If you dont have never taken photography course or have never read a book on the topic, this is the perfect book to start with. On the other hand, if you already know the basis and are familiar with terms like rules of third, quality of light and negative space, I would suggest you to go for either the Photographers eye or the Photographers mind. Photo Nuts and Shots will be just too superficial for you. That being said, if you never seem to be able to shoot great pictures, get the ebook. It will improve your photography a thousandfold!
