Killing Kennedy

I was nearly three when John F. Kennedy was assassinated. I don’t remember where I was when I heard the news, but I seem to have a memory of watching the funeral on television. Authors Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard fill in a lot of blanks for me and provide background and information about the events of JFK’s brief presidency, his many enemies, his many faults, his many physical disabilities, and his many accomplishments. If you are looking for an “Oliver Stone-like” conspiracy book Killing Kennedy is NOT for you. If you are interested in the facts and small details lost through the years this book will excite you.

The Digital Photography Book Volume 2

This is the second edition to Scott Kelby’s book on digital photography.  In his own words, The Digital Photography Book, Volume 2 is all about “you and I out shooting where I answer questions, give you advise, and share the secrets I’ve learned just like I would with a friend – without all the technical explanations and techie photo speak.”

Volume 2 is not an update of his first book, but contains additional tips not covered before.  I first read it last year and reread most of it preparing for this review and was amazed again about what I forgot.  I made adjustments to my camera after reading it again.  Kelby again provides coverage of one tip per page and started off this book with one of the most challenging issues…flash photography.
