Now Reading: Digital Photography Masterclass

Photo Credit: Amazon)

Freshly unwrapped as an Xmas present yesterday, I now have new photography book in my library. Digital Photography Masterclass, by Tom Ang, is over 350 pages of photography lessons, tutorials, and self-paced assignments that looks to be another great resource for me as I continue to push myself further to take better photographs. After thumbing through it a little bit after dinner last night, I liked the way the different chapters and subjects were layed out, and there were a lot (albeit somewhat small) examples of different variations and combinations with the concepts covered in each chapter.

There were only a handful of customer reviews at Amazon, but the majority of responses seemed positive. For the real test, though, I need to carve out some time to sit down, read through it, and get some practice in. My next trip to Maui is coming up fast, and while this looks like a great book, it’s a little too heavy to pack and bring with me. That doesn’t leave a lot of time, and while I’m not going to learn everything the book has to offer in just 6 weeks time, I’d like to have at least a few subjects well rehearsed by then.
Another Option
I also received a pair of gifts cards to Barnes and Noble and Borders, and while reading up on Digital Photography Masterclass on Amazon, I also stumbled across Scott Kelby’s The Digital Photography Book, Volume 2. That one seems like a big seller and very popular on Amazon. I became a fan of Kelby’s books when I picked up his 7-Point System for Photoshop book. I’ll have to stop by the bookstore and browse through it, and then I’ll have to decide how I want to get prepared for my next trip to Maui.
If you have read either one of these books, let me know what you think. Also, if you have other recommendations, those are welcome as well.
