I’ve been trying to read more photography books lately and had plenty of time to get in some good quality reading at the beach last week. My favorite book so far is “The Key To Taking Pictures Like A Professional Photographer” by Katie Evans. Katie has a fabulous blog where she documents her life through photos as well as helping out newbies like me learn the ropes of photography. She offers great tips and tricks as well as full on tutorials for shooting and photo editing. So I took the plunge and bought her book and I have to say it is worth every penny.
She covers everything from exposure, camera settings, lighting, composition and even editing. I think the hardest part for me starting off was really understanding the relationship between aperture and shutter speed. Leave it to Katie that she has the BEST diagram to explain the relationship and it finally clicked for me! She makes photography easy to understand. Even the hubby had a great time reading it last week.
The book will go into detail about how to interact with each subject/group, where to place and what to say to your subjects as well as how to achieve natural un-posed poses! Whoohoo!
Now that I have learned so much from her first book I can finally take my photos to the next level.
You can get your own copy of Katie’s 1st book “The Key To Taking Pictures Like A Professional Photographer” and reserve your copy of “The Key To Natural Posing” here. Trust me you will love it!
