Understanding DSLR Lenses: An Illustrated Guidebook (Finely Focused Photography Books 3)

by Al Judge

This is the third book of the Finely Focused Photography Books Series by Al Judge.

Finely Focused Photography Books is a new series of books from Al Judge for people who prefer to study photography one topic at a time.

Each Book of the Series draws upon Al’s longer and more comprehensive books for content. Like all of Al Judge’s books these books contain numerous photos and illustrations to help facilitate clear and concise communication.

Understanding DSLR Lenses will painlessly provide help and insight into the often confusing and intimidating world of DSLR Camera Lenses. The ability to change lenses is one of the greatest strengths of the DSLR camera but Lens Selection requires some insight. If you get serious about photography, you will spend much more money on Lenses than Cameras. The good news is that Lenses retain their value over decades and can often be used on with each new camera release. Some Lenses designed for film cameras can still be used on their digital counterparts. A wise Lens purchase will dramatically improve the quality of your images.

Digital Cameras don’t have to be intimidating. The underlying principles are surprisingly simple but rarely presented in layman’s terms. Like any other area of specialization, photography has its own language. Fortunately, you only need to understand a few of terms and concepts to get started.

This guide to PHOTOGRAPHY BASICS builds a solid foundation of photographic knowledge with easy-to-follow discussions of everything that you need to know in order to get started with confidence. Every photographic term used in the book is clearly defined and thoroughly explained. All terms are also highlighted by using BOLD CAPS so that you can easily find them again to refresh your memory.

This Photographic Guide will take the mystery out of digital cameras, camera choices, and Photographic Jargon.

This book is filled with charts, illustrations and photos that take the discussion to new levels. You will not only understand the terminology and techniques discussed, but you will have a much better understanding of how your camera works and what is actually happening when you make adjustments. The charts and photos should help you to retain what you learn and put it to good use immediately.

Although this book provides a fast-track approach to achieving photographic competence it does not rely on previous knowledge.

This book will:

  • Save you a great deal of time and effort.
  • Help you take better pictures and know why they are better.
  • Present the details and language of digital photography without intimidation or confusing terminology – all terms are clearly defined and explained.
  • You may also be interested in Al’s other books.

Vivaldi’s Girls

by D.P. Rosano

Antonio Vivaldi’s music has mesmerized audiences for overthree hundred years. Another reputation that is far less reported than hismusical genius was the impressive figure that he cut in Venetian society and forthe females who pursued him.
 

The young red-haired prodigy could make women swoon withthe sweeping grandeur of his violin performances – even more so after he tradedin his priest’s robes for the dashing attire of a rich and notorious celebrity.Through the words of his lifelong friend, Domenico Trapensi, Vivaldi’s Girls tells the story ofVivaldi’s time as a music teacher for young girls at Venice’s Conservatorio, of those who fell formore than just his violin lessons, and of his romancing of other girls on theroad to the Italian cities in his time.

Praise from readers:
“Told with a flair for the arts and the flourishes of Italy, Vivaldi’s Girls may share a new dimension of the master, but in D.P.’s eloquent writing the fullness of his life – both in the passion for music and for women – we are still in awe of this superb Baroque composer. Kudos!” – Grady Harp, Amazon Top 50 Reviewer
“I found this story to be a fun read with a great storyline and a rich history of this time frame. Good read for anyone who is a fan of historical times and great music or a love for old Italy.” – Jimmy Ray, Amazon Review



A Little Bit of Arizona: Volume 25

by Paul Moore

This is a photography book; it does not explain or attempt to teach you about photography, in Arizona or anywhere else. One of the greatest pleasures about photography is experimenting to see if the image you capture resembles the image you had in your mind when you took it.
This book is small; it is intended to be small. It is an attempt to bring the cost of photography books down to as low as they can go without sacrificing digital quality of the images within. This is the twenty fifth volume in a series, length or number unknown at the moment. However, when the series becomes sufficiently voluminous, they will be combined into a larger, and unfortunately more expensive, volume.
This volume contains about 40 images. Future volumes may contain a few more or a few less depending upon final digital size. I sincerely hope you enjoy the images within.
