Digital Photography Book – Volume 3

A couple months ago I wrote a post on what I thought were three great photography books to read if you were just starting out or wanted to learn some useful techniques. In that post I stated that I was waiting on a particular book, The Digital Photography Book Volume 3 by Scott Kelby. Actually, Volumes 1 and Volume 2 of that series were on my list and Volume 3 follows up where those first two books leave off. I was actually on a pre-order list waiting for my copy, and like all the Scott Kelby books I’ve personally read to date, this one is a great read.

I enjoy reading his books and always find useful tips and quicker ways to do certain things. I like the way he lays out his Digital Photography books, with one tip or technique on each page with a photo that gives a visual description. Scott has an easy to read writing style that I enjoy and I’d definitely recommend this one too. Obviously I’m not alone there, he’s the number one author in the world on these types of books for 4 years running. If you’d like to purchase a copy of any of these books, click on the Amazon link on this site to direct you there.

I personally would recommend reading the first two volumes to help get you up to speed. These books will only run you about $15 bucks each and are nice because even if you have really never picked up a camera, or if you have been shooting for years, you’ll find these books filled with useful information. I still go back to the first two volumes when I need to refresh my memory or to learn how to achieve a certain type of shot. They are all nice books to add to your photography collection, and if you liked the first two, you’re going to enjoy this one too! You can even purchase the whole set with  Volumes 1, 2 and 3  in a boxed set.  Nice huh?
