Take Control of Your Camera... but Only When You Have To

When you first buy a camera it's great to just shoot away, taking advantage of all the sophisticated automatic features of 'full auto' mode. Real photographers are able to take better photos because they understand what their cameras's auto mode is doing, and when to over-rule it and let creativity reign. This book will make you a real photographer.

Simple

Photography Beyond Auto is an easily accessible guide which will set you free.

Concise

Unlike other books, Photography Beyond Auto does not attempt to explain every switch, dial and button on your camera, or explore precisely where each pixel comes from. It concentrates on the key creative controls, including exposure, focus and colour; essential skills that'll enable you to take the sensational pictures that Auto mode simply can't.

Time-saving

Auto mode does a good job a lot of the time, so Photography Beyond Auto will help you understand, in easy-to-understand terms, why camera auto makes the decisions it does, and whether they will help or hinder your creative vision.

Inspiring

Filled with creative examples that'll make you want to get shooting straight away.
