Great tips as always. I love his first book in this series which I read when I was just starting photography. I got this as I was not in the mood to read 4 more books in the series (which I will definitely read someday). There were some great tips but some chapters were useless to me - like the ones which talked to those who were getting started with photography or the ones about setting up your own studio. But still a great book.

I have read this book several times and also I think anybody can read some part of it again and again. Although having several parts, made it a book for begginers but there are useful tips in eash chapter.

Een duidelijk boek met handige tips om betere foto's te maken en je camera beter in te kunnen stellen.

Wel één punt van kritiek. De Nederlandse editie bevat veel spel- en typfouten.

Źle ułożona – ktoś najwidoczniej wybrał porady z wielu książek tego samego autora i upchnął w jednym miejscu. W efekcie na początku są porady dla osób zarabiających na fotografii (typu jakie lampy kupić do studia, jak pracować z modelką) a na końcu dla początkujących (czym różni się robienie selfie lustrzanką od robienia go smartfonem, po co kupować torbę fotograficzną). Czasem to samo pytanie pojawia się dwa razy i odpowiedzi są różne (RAW czy JPEG: strona 194 kontra strona 228). Przeważają por ...more

Уж е за начинаещи, но в никакъв случай не я препоръчвам на млади фотографи. Не е добре систематизирана, не се обяснява добре, а с по няколко думи, а също и не е включено всичко важно, което трябва да се научи, но пък за сметка на всичко това заглавието е много гръмко и маркетингово.

Скот Келби е човек, който си мисли, че е толкова забавен, че не усеща колко често изобщо не е забавен. :D

След прочитането на тази книга не мога да кажа, че научих повече, отколкото научавам четейки и ровейки се из н

Good Book for beginners. Gives you idea about what tools you need. I think after reading few books and doing my practice, you need to learn some photo editing tools to make your photos look great.

conclusion:
You should read this book to take good photographs. And to make those good photographs great, you use Photoshop or lightroom!

This is probably the best informational photography book you're going to get. Rather than nailing all the technical stuff/why things work with photography, this guy keeps it simple, straightforward, and easy to understand. If you want your pics to look pro, read this! Plus, Scott Kelby has an awesome sense of humor so it makes for a great read. ...more
