Take the Journey from Beginner to Portrait Photographer with these 5 Ebook Guides

The 5 e-books in this comprehensive series will guide you from a beginners level all the way to taking slick professional portraits in no time.

Guide No.1

Hands-On Photography Guide for Beginners

The first e-book is designed to quickly get you up to speed with basic photography principles, and provides a platform for you to experiment and refine your techniques. This is not another e-book on photography theory. Instead, Andy provides plenty of hand-holding using easy-to-understand conversational language. Learn to take better pictures in 4 hours with this e-book! We start off with a section of "Photography Exercises" to familiarize you with the basic techniques of photography, using a show-and-tell approach. This breakthrough approach has been proven time and again to be effective in getting beginners to start experimenting intelligently with photography. Andy's approach emphasizes deep understanding, and strives to make photography simple.In the accompanying section called "Analyzing The Shot" Andy takes you through his thought process with the photographs that he has taken, describing how he arrived at the combination of settings used for each shot, and further advice on how you can apply these techniques to your own photographs. Lastly, great care has been taken to design an e-book that is easy to use, elegantly crafted and most importantly effective in teaching you photography. This e-book is horizontally laid-out, which maximizes your screen area for reading (instead of the portrait orientation that many e-books use). Paragraphs are narrower for easier reading, and diagrams/photos are used throughout to illustrate each point.

    I have really enjoyed the books and you have made some things so simple for me to understand. Although we have not met I feel I know much about the way you do your photography, and I am happy to have shared in it.

  4. Sonia Oglesby says:

    Okay, I want all my money back ! Not from you but, everyone else that was suppose to teach me lighting techniques. This is theory and application displayed with illustrations and clear diagrams. Where have you been all these months, while I painstakingly studied, but never quite understood what was going on. Thank God I finally see the light !

  5. Bharat Shetty says:

    I purchased simple SLR eBook set from Andy Lim. I must say one of most simplest eBook to understand the basics and some core elements of using flash, available light and portrait work. I have ready many books and articles , mostly they all take 50 -100 pages and some will cost you a leg or an arm! to make you understand a concept. Andy has taken his years of experience and put every thing in concise and easy to understand eBook, which you should be able to finish in probably an hour or two, you can also use it as a handy reference guide. If you are a beginner or a amateur and need a kick start to take you photography to the next level - invest in the simple SLR eBook, its worth every penny spend.

  6. Andrew Hong says:

  7. Anthony Rogers says:

    Recently I wanted to take some shots of the Twins Towers before leaving KL. Something I have been putting off for two years. I used your Digital Book as up until then I had not been keen to use the manual capabilities of my camera. With the books guidance I took some nice shots. Thanks Mate.. the book is excellent.

  8. Edmund says:

    One word to describe your new ebook. "Wow". As a amateur photographer, i often wonder why i couldn't take nice pics with my DSLR. I found the answer in your ebook. Good Job, Andy and look forward to your other release.
