I enjoy learning things through self-investigation, so I will sometimes pick up a book and discover tips and guidance from the pros.
Well, such as it was when I spotted the photography book, Your Camera Loves You, Learn To Love It Back, by Khara Plicanic. The book cover was so cleverly designed that it lured me into plucking it off the shelf because it didn't look like your traditional photography book.
It looked PLAYFUL. And I like anything to do with being playful.
Honestly folks, this book is a treasure chest of gems for anyone who yearns to learn more about digital photography. Khara starts with the basics, and then gradually moves to slightly more advanced techniques.
And what I especially love about this book is the way Khara explains everything – with ease, simplicity, and a great sense of humor.
She’s an awesome teacher!
After reading the first chapter, I was able to take two of her instructionals (two effects which I have always wanted to learn how to do) and apply them to my photographs. And guess what? It was really easy!
So, thank you, Khara!

Here are some highlights from the book:
-Move beyond the “Auto” mode to take advantage of more of your camera’s features and settings
-Discover how to best use the features of whatever camera you already have – whether it’s a high-performance DSLR or a basic point-and-shoot camera
-Learn from Khara’s fun, friendly voice and techno-babble-free explanations how to easily improve your photos
-Learn how to backup and store your photos for safekeeping
So if you’re looking for a book that will help you better understand your digital camera, I highly recommend, Your Camera Loves You, Learn To Love It Back.
It really gets you excited about trying new things with your camera and photography.
This book is listed under Beginner, but I have a feeling that even those who are much more experienced than I in photography, may find some great pointers.
And happy snapping!
