An Excellent Resource

As an experienced photographer, I often adjust camera settings on autopilot, without having to think about why I’m doing it. If asked to explain why, I can’t always put it in words. Jeff Curto’s iBook explains it all, in words, interactive images, and video. Consider this a reference book. It’s not just for beginners. If you’re new to photography, the concepts in here are invaluable!

Wonderful Book

I have shared this wonderful book with all my photographer friends and they all love it! It has something for every photographer at every skill level.

Great book for some looking to beyond auto

First of all for a free a lot of effort has gone into this book. I have been shooting a long time and never quite had a grasp on the rule of 3rds. The author put it all together for me. Within the 48 pages are movies and presentations, so it goes much deeper than you may think.
