Beyond Point-and-Shoot by Darrell Young

young-bpas-oreilly

Beyond Point-and-Shoot: Learning to Use a Digital SLR or Interchangeable-Lens Camera is a new book by Darrell Young (Rocky Nook, 140 pages, $30) for those who want to transition from compact cameras and get creative with DSLRs.

Assuming little to no knowledge of photographic terms, techniques, or technology, Beyond Point-And-Shoot is intended to help the photographic newbie to become “real” photographer who is experienced, in-control, and passionate about their craft. Author Darrell Young explores various types of interchangeable-lens cameras, focusing on those with larger imaging sensors, such as digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras.

The book teaches how to apply important photographic principles, such as depth of field, white balance, and metering. With this newfound knowledge you’ll move beyond point-and-shoot and begin taking truly great photographs.

The book will be available this May.
