An excellent Kindle guide to photography basics is free again for today and I JUST saw that it was, because I was looking for it for a friend, for regular price.
I'm repeating the earlier blog details on this, to get this tip off tonight:
A book on the basics of camera settings -- what they mean and how they work together -- is free for a day or so. Generally the free promos are one day to five, the average seeming to be 2 days while some are free for only a few hours. This may have been made free earlier this week but, as mentioned, I just noticed it.
This is a guide to 'mastering' the concepts of aperture, shutter speed, ISO and exposure, written by AI Judge, whose Kindle books on photography basics get high ratings for clarity. It's not a book for advanced users who already use these controls with a good understanding of them. It's for those who depend on 'auto' mode but would like to experiment with more control over their results when they want.
It's a small book, only 68 pages, but I've downloaded it and it's very well organized, very clearly written and should be a boon for anyone who would like to try a bit more than 'auto' mode on their cameras and it will help in understanding why certain combinations of settings may be optimal for this or that situation. Focal Length is explained as well. The Kindle edition of this small guide is generally $5.99 - it's also available in paperback for $12.21.
And of course, the cost of the Kindle edition is $0.00 today. I've no idea if it'll still be a free promo anymore on Thursday. Apologies for not looking earlier.
