The Key to Taking Pictures Like a Professional Photographer, a Book Review

So many people are interested in learning how to better use their cameras.  It's not just for photographers anymore! But when your starting out it's hard to find an understandable, detailed, beginner's guide.  Lucky for us some of the pros have started to share their knowledge through their own e-books and Katie Evans wrote one I love so much I had to share it with you! The Key to Taking Pictures Like a Professional Photographer-



Katie has a way of explaining all the information in ways that works for everyone no matter what your learning style.  Personally I'm a visual learner, so all of the images that show me clearly what she's explaining with her words really helped me understand what she's saying and retain that knowledge.  She will empower you with her encouragement while giving you the tools you need to understand your camera and take beautiful images!





This book has 72 pages of easy to understand explanations giving you everything you need to get that camera off auto.  Learn everything from what ISO, Aperture, and Shutter speed mean (and how to use them) to choosing the right camera and lenses for your needs, to how to find light and edit your images.  It's a start to finish guide that will walk you through everything you need to know, all the while keeping you entertained with beautiful images. 



You guys know I've been learning to use my camera this year, so by the time I got this book I wondered if it would be TOO basic.  Worry not!  Even if your past the point of needing to learn your camera's settings, if your not a pro, there is SOMETHING in this book for you to learn.  I highly recommend it!
