Scott Kelby, author of The Digital Photography Book, Volume 1, is back with yet another follow-up with an entirely new book that picks up right where he left off with Volume 3. It's even more of that 'Ah ha, so that' s how they do it,' straight-to-the-point, skip-the-techno-jargon stuff students can really use today to make their shots even better.

This book truly has a brilliant premise, and here's how Scott describes it: 'If you and I were out on a shoot and you asked me, 'Hey Scott, I want the light for this portrait to look really soft and flattering. How far back should I put this softbox?' I wouldn't give you a lecture about lighting ratios, or flash modifiers. In real life, I'd just turn to you and say, 'Move it in as close to your subject as you possibly can, without it actually showing up in the shot.' Well, that's what this book is all about: you and I out shooting where I answer questions, give you advice, and share the secrets I've learned, just like I would with a friend--without all the technical explanations and techie photo speak.'

The Digital Photography Book, Volume 4 follows in the footsteps of the wildly successful previous volumes, giving photography students nearly two hundred more closely guarded photographic 'tricks of the trade' to get them shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colourful, more professional-looking photos with their digital camera every time they press the shutter button.
