The Digital Photography Book, Part 5: Photo Recipes – New Book

The Digital Photography Book - Part 5 Photo Recipes

The Digital Photography Book, Part 5: Photo Recipes is a new book from Scott Kelby, which picks up where book 4 left off and delivers an entire book based on “photo recipes.”

Scott breaks each spread into four segments: (1) he explains exactly what you’re seeing behind the scenes, (2) he lists all of his camera settings, and lens and lighting info—it’s all there, (3) he gives you his thought process, so you learn exactly why he does it this way, and (4) he shares all the post-processing in Lightroom or Photoshop that goes on after the shoot.

The Digital Photography Book, Part 5: Photo Recipes retails for $24.99; however, it is currently available for $17.66 on

It is also available for $16.78 as a Kindle ebook.

Ergonomics, menu systems and skin tones are his big reasons why. Check out the video for the full breakdown.

Photography Rules of Composition with Scott Kelby

In this video from the Google+ Photographers’ Conference, Scott Kelby shakes up some of the traditional instruction of teaching photographic composition.  It’s a rather long video; however, Scott Kelby is a great teacher and this session is worth a listen.  I hit play and planned on catching a few minutes of it, but Scott sucked me in and I stuck around for the duration.
