Kindle Tip: Really Good Photo Basics Kindle book free again for maybe one day -- on 'mastering' basic camera settings

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.

    1. Lourenco, I like that it's small and covers only the essentials but in a clearer way than most. Camera manuals are the least likely to help on basics :-).


NOTE: TO AVOID SPAM being posted instantly, this blog uses the "DELAY" feature.

Am often away much of the day, and postings won't show up right away. Posts done to use referrer-links may never show up.

Usually, am online enough to release comments within a day though, so the hard-to-read match-text tests for commenting won't be needed this way.

Feedback and questions are welcome. Thanks for participating.

Technical Problems?
If you're having problems leaving a Comment, Google's blogger-help asks that you clear the '' cookies on your browser's Tools or Options menu bar and that will fix the Comment-box problems (until they have a permanent fix).

IF that doesn't work either, then UNcheck the "keep me signed in" box -- Google-help says that should allow your comment to post (it's a workaround to a current bug).
Apologies for the problems.

TIP: There's a size limit. If longer than 3500 characters or so, in a text editor, make two posts out of it.
