“The Digital Photography Book” by Scott Kelby has the author answering questions, giving advice and sharing photography secrets without complicated technical explanations.

Packed with information, the book begins with a chapter on getting sharp photos. It covers the use of a tripod, a cable release, self-timer and numerous tricks of the trade. One example is how to get steadier hand-held shots by wrapping your camera strap just so around your arm and the outside of your wrist (a photo is included), making the camera more stable.

There’s a chapter on shooting flowers like a professional. Kelby said not to shoot down on flowers, as it makes your shot look average. To create serious visual interest, shoot from an unusual angle. He says that a zoom lens will work as well as a macro (close-up), because you can often zoom in tightly enough to have the flower fill the frame and the background will be out of focus, leaving the flower the focal point. It’s a good idea to invest in knee pads (found at your local gardening store).

For shooting weddings, Kelby offers tricks for low-light shooting; getting soft, diffused light with a flash; how to find just the right bridal light; and how to position your camera. Read full article here.
