Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) March 27, 2013
John Wiley and Sons, Inc., today announced the publication of Beyond Auto Mode: A Guide to Taking Control of Your Photography (Wiley, 978-1-118-17287-2, March 2013, US $29.99), the definitive guide that equips new and less experienced dSLR users with the knowledge and skills needed to take the next step toward creative control of their photography. Professional photographer and educator, Jennifer Bebb walks readers through every camera setting and mode, and shares the skills necessary to create truly remarkable and memorable images.
Part art and part science, digital photography records and preserves the moments of people’s lives. While most dSLR users purchase these expensive and powerful cameras for greater control and flexibility, many users are too intimidated by the complexity of the buttons and settings to move beyond the automatic approach. Using a friendly tone and providing clear and concise technical explanations, Beyond Auto Mode teaches dSLR owners how to take full advantage of the features their sophisticated camera offers. After thoroughly explaining shutter speed, aperture, depth of field, ISO, and basic composition, Bebb offers direction on what each camera mode does and when it should be used. Readers gain the confidence to use the entire feature set. Beyond Auto Mode fully explains how to:
- Master the exposure triangle: ISO, aperture and shutter speed
- Experiment with each setting and learn what they do
- Practice with semi-automatic modes
- See how different types of light affect an image
- Understand exactly what the user controls and what the camera controls
- Explore settings for portraits, landscapes and other common shots
- Create the perfect image in the camera, instead of fixing a mediocre image with Photoshop
For any photographer that wants to get the most out of their dSLR, Beyond Auto Mode: A Guide to Taking Control of Your Photography provides the tools needed to move out of the comfort zone to gain control and take full advantage of everything a dSLR offers. The book is now available for purchase online and at retailers nationwide in both print and all e-book formats. For a list of retailers, visit http://www.wiley.com/buy/9781118172872.
