The Digital Photography Book Volume 3

What do you do when your first two books do really well?  Scott Kelby did the natural thing and wrote a third, the aptly named The Digital Photography Book, Volume 3.  As in his first two digital photography books (he has written other books) Kelby writes with the perspective that he is out with you taking pictures.  His descriptions provide technical information without overwhelming you with jargon.  It also doesn’t hurt that he uses his sense of humor to entertain.

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.

The Digital Photography Book

There may be thousands of photography books available and many of them have now been edited to include digital photography.  Less than ten years ago I was the only person in my family that had a camera.  We often bought the kids disposable cameras to use on vacations.  I bought my first digital camera (an Olympus for around $700) and I seem to remember that it had around 3 MP.  I took both it and my 35mm film camera on vacation that year to compare both.
