I just got a book that was recommended by iStockphoto.com. As a contributor there, on a very minor scale, I wanted to improve my photography skills a bit, to get more pictures accepted and fewer rejected. If you like photography and want to improve it, purchase that book. It’s eminently readable, it’s NOT a technical manual, it shows you what to do, and what not to do, to get great results. It works for anybody who wants to take better pictures, regardless of the camera they use. The book? “The Digital Photography Book” by Scott Kelby. Scott is also the Editor of Layers Magazine, something I just found out today. No wonder his books covers photography as well as Photoshop editing tips so expertly!
It’s not a stretch to talk about Photography on a technical blog, I bet you are sharing your pictures with your friends and family, attaching them to email, or even putting them on a web page online. In an earlier post, I discussed the print resolution versus screen resolution; resolution however has not much to do with the quality of the picture.
