Photographer. Not just anyone with a camera.
For this, for instance, taken during a recent baby shower…:
…you need this…:
…and a lot of time. Just loading and unloading all that gear and setting up takes an hour or more.
And that is why photographers charge a fee for their work, and that fee covers all that work plus the post processing. Your nephew with a camera can click, but he can’t give you the quality images that you get when you do it properly.
…or you zoom in and out, using a wide angle lens, while you take the picture at a slow shutter speed, like 1/15th second. And you get:
Two baby shower shoots in a week: yesterday was the second. Lots of event photos, but also a few more formal shots, like this:
Taken outside with a flash on camera: 1/200, f/2.8, ISO 800. Why? Because:
- 1/200 is needed for sharp, no motion-blur images;
- f/2.8 to get the blurred background
- So, 800 ISO to get the right exposure.
That’s how it works!
Those of you who shoot in automatic modes: try manual instead. The first shot may take longer to set, but after that the consistency you get is amazing. You are in charge.

Six of the seven books (Picture)
Reminder: these are real books, at least 100 pages each, with all the practical and theoretical information you need to become a good photographer. They are intended both for beginners and for advanced users: everyone will find useful information in them, and as an engineer who thinks that things should be simple, I know how to explain complicated concepts.
Designed to look great on an iPad or large phone, and you can even print them (there’s a README included that gives you permission, so copy shops will do it).
The books add up to C$189 (plus tax if you’re Canadian), or $109 plus tax if you buy them all at once.
But here’s the news. This week, use discount code AugustValueDeal upon checkout, and you get all seven books for $50 (plus HST).
So click now and enjoy hours of reading pleasure—and become a better photographer at the same time.
