Budding photographers get a leg up on the digital art form with helpful tips and projects in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. The author’s colorful images and inspired projects throughout the book help illustrate the teaching moments.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Rock the Shot! Point & Shoot Photography made Fun & Easy” by Craig Norton and Bob the Big Red Ball.

Author Craig Norton, a professional photographer who teaches people of all ages, has used photography as an art therapy at children’s hospitals.

Since his early days with a Kodak Instamatic to the high-tech digital cameras of today, Craig Norton has been documenting his world and sharing his passion for the art of photography. This new book is designed for people of all ages who want to understand the basics and take more interesting pictures. As he points out, if you give someone a camera, some basic knowledge of how it works and a creative nudge, anyone can take great photos.

“Rock the Shot!” covers point-and-shoot cameras and cell phones to provide a better understanding of the equipment and how to take more creative photos. Each technical learning moment is followed by examples of fun projects to practice skills. From describing the terminology of photography to shutter speeds and aperture, when to use the flash, composition and using smart phones and tablets, Norton skillfully covers all aspects of the technology and art. Bob the Big Red Ball is a not-so-typical co-author. He makes appearances as a model and lends his wisdom throughout, referred to as “Bobisms.”

Author Craig Norton, a professional photographer who teaches people of all ages, has used photography as an art therapy at children’s hospitals, helping patients forget about their medical condition. Norton works with Arts for Learning CT, teaching photography workshops and residencies in schools and museums.
