Customer Reviews

Get the Kindle version

 on 11 June 2014
By Owen Tuckett
Packed full of tips and techniques not only is the Kindle version excellent value but you can take full advantage of the links to online video tutorials and more. Tony Northrup has quite an engaging style as does his wife Chelsea whose video tutorial on posing for portraits is excellent. Thee are nice touches of humour and I like the way the authors say they they are still learning too. There are quizzes to check your learning and practice exercises. There is something for most levels of photographer and this is a resource that I can see me returning to time and time again. Thoroughly recommended.

Tony Northrup’s Dslr Book: How to Create stunning digital photography

 on 27 March 2015
By John Preston
Wow I cannot recommend Tony Northrup’s books highly enough. I have this one plus his one on adobe lightroom 5. Not only are they excellent they allow you to join his facebook page as well as his private stunning digital photography community. Apart from all the knowledge and learning in the books you can get advice and help on gear, your own photos (you can choose how gentle it is) and help others as well as chat. For example I posted a question about lenses and in 30mins I had 20 helpful suggestions from other photographers. The books come with QR links (or web address links) to a host of videos that back up the tutorials in the book which are very helpful and Tony and his wife Chelsea are just so friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Honestly you buy a book (or a few) and you become part of a community – I think it is fantastic and am so pleased I bought them. You get discount if you want to buy webspace to show off your photos and Tony even shows you how to set one up. I am positive if you buy these books you wont be disappointed. Chelsea makes a massive contibution too so you get 2 experts opinions for the price of one!

Solid foundation, nothing more.

It is a really decent book, but it’s seriously shallow. Barely scratches the surface and really skips over a couple of fundamental areas. It should be really listed as a beginners book.

I love love love it

I love this book. I had a sudden urge to study photography and out of blue bought a very expensive camera. upon looking up how to use it I came across Tony Northup and his presentation style has captivated me so much I bought this book. What a bargain! It explains everything so well, teaches how to make a picture (and not just take one) but not over the top details. I find this book very informative, engaging style, just the right amount of information delivered perfectly. it opened my eyes and fell in love with this subject. I can see this book giving still a lot of information to more advanced people as well. I love how there is a consistency in the style of videos, by watching them you grow to know Tony and Chelsea. They are passionate about the subject and it really show. well impressed

Not just a book, it’s a whole learning experience.

Had the Kindle version of this book, and I think it’s worth every penny and more. Not only does one get a real good learning experience from the book but there are many links to videos made by the authors, and they are so good, not the most polished videos but that is where they win for me, they feel like they are friends and really want to help. I am trying to relearn photography after illnesses have affected my memory and I am like a newbie, this has been the only way I’ve been able to take the information onboard. I highly recommend this book.

… very natural presenter and gets into a lot of good detail in an easy to access way

I have watched a few of Tony’s You Tube videos he is a very natural presenter and gets into a lot of good detail in an easy to access way.

I have been taking photos for many years using point and shoot, and bridge cameras, having recently upgraded to my very first DSLR I thought it was worth the time and effort to learn how to control my new camera. So having seen may of Tony’s videos on YouTube and the many attached adverts for his book (and having learnt a lot but in a very disjointed way) I decided to take the leap and buy the book.

A no-brainer for photography enthusiasts and beginners alike.

I came across Tony and Chelsea’s YouTube channel only recently. I was blow away by his technical expertise and his understanding, at a scientific level, of the various technical areas within photography. I am by no means new to photography – having been involved in wedding/portrait photography for more years than I care to remember before my retirement.

The perfect guide to all aspects of DSLR photography.

I have just started out in DSLR photography, having decided that, although my phone is convenient for quick “snaps”, I needed to go further in producing photographs that I would be proud to look back on in years to come; and this book is a ” must have”. Tony Northrup has an inimitable way of explaining different aspects of photography in a simple and concise way without being condescending to the beginner. Every situation you are likely to find yourself in is covered and is accompanied by links to hours of free, downloadable video. There is a very comprehensive list of content, enabling you to quickly find expert guidance and tips on day and night time photography, from weddings and sunsets to photographing fireworks and the night sky. If you are more advanced in your photography, it covers advice on how to use computer software to enhance your images and produce professional results. All this for such an extremely low price, I don’t think I will ever need to buy another digital photography guide! Brilliant!
