The Crafter's Guide to Taking Great Photos
by Heidi Adnum
The thing about photography is that it's not rocket science. Really, it isn't. But for some reason, so many people have a tough time nudging the dial atop their DSLR cameras from the auto mode into manual mode.
One of the things I like about The Crafter's Guide to Taking Great Photos is that the three topics that people get intimidated to talk about—Aperture, Shutter Speed, and Exposure (ISO) are boiled down in simple and easy-to-understand language with examples that real people can understand.
And once those foundational topics are explained, the author delves into the nitty gritty how to effectively photograph all sorts of different creative projects. From Fashion & Fabrics to Knitting & Needlecraft, to Jewlery, Accessores, and more, we gain valuable tips on planning and setting up, composition, and ideas on how to troubleshoot common problems and answers to frequently asked questions.
The final section of the book includes information about editing, image handling, optimization, and even a section on businss advice. The photographs that are peppered throughout the book are ones provided by people within the creative world who are successfully staging, shooting, and selling their work. Each photograph is accompanied by information about the camera and settings used, which helps the reader gain insight on exactly how the photographer captured the shot.
The Crafter's Guide to Taking Great Photos is a wonderfully written book from start to finish. It is easy to read, it is practical, it is thorough.
