Description

From the shutter-snapping experts at Popular Photography magazine, Take Your Best Shot is the new manual that takes you from a camera novice to point-and-shoot pro.

Learn how to:
-set up flattering window-lit portraits
-capture breathtaking underwater images
-take eye-defying motion-blur action shots
-shoot surprising abstract compositions

In Take Your Best Shot, Popular Photography's expert writers and photographers show you how to capture amazing images in the moment, and how to set up breathtaking shots.

This manual takes image-making to the next level, showing you how to create a wide range of photo effects, from the subtle (adjusting the color in a picture to create a different mood) to the artistic (compositions merging several photos to dramatic effect) to the amazing (how to photograph yourself levitating).

Set-ups and techniques are described in detail, with easy-to-understand illustrations and diagrams, and a wealth of beautifully inspirational photography. 

Beginners will learn ways to quickly move into new realms of expertise, and even old pros will pick up some new tricks. Anyone who has ever looked at an amazing composition or a skillful composite and said, “How did they do that?” will find this book irresistible.

Take Your Best Shot starts with sections on basic gear, lighting, and editing, and then devotes entire chapters to photographing people, places, and things.

The guide offers insightful techniques for taking impressive photos, and includes illustrated step-by-step how-tos and diagrams that break down each shot so it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

"An excellent roadmap to the joys of photography. Even experienced photographs will find it a vivid reminder of what first sparked their passion for photography." - Brian Smith, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer

"What's not to love? Smart, fun, fresh, and hip to history, this is a really hot book that comforts the beginner and challenges the old pro." - Anthony Bannon, Director of the George Eastman House, International Museum of Photography & Film
