About this book

Scott Kelby, author of The Digital Photography Book (the best-selling digital photography book of all time), is back with another follow-up to his smash best-seller, with an entirely new book that picks up right where Part 4 left off. It's even more of that "Ah ha, so that's how they do it," straight-to-the-point, skip-the-techno-jargon stuff people can really use today, and that made volume 1 the world's best-selling book on digital photography.

While The Digital Photography Book, Part 5, has the same look and feel of the first four books in this bestselling series, there is something in The Digital Photography Book, Part 5 that's just a little bit different. In the first four volumes, Kelby included a chapter at the end of each book, filled with "photo recipes" showing exactly how he "got the shot." Over the years, many readers have commented that it's their favorite chapter in the books, that it's the most fun and the most educational. So, for Part 5, Scott has created the entire book in this "photo recipes" style. Each two-page spread shows the reader the final photo, as well as a behind-the-scenes image and text that describes exactly how he got the shot. In this Part 5, Scott devotes entire chapters to photographing people (in natural light and in the studio), sports, weddings, landscapes, travel, hot shoe flash, and nature photography. Readers will be shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos in no time.
