My Opinion

My first impression when I opened this on my iPad was ‘wow’ . This is no hastily slapped together pdf, this is a beautiful looking book and would (if it was physical) go perfectly on anyones coffee table.

The pages and images contained in the book were mostly made using the iPhone and various apps and I must say that the whole feel of the book is very professional. A real keeper!

I’ve always been jealous of my friends who seem to have some sort of magic touch when it comes to producing great looking photos but since getting this ebook and following some the nice tips like keeping the shutter button pressed until you get the scene properly framed and then releasing it when all is good or turning on HDR and how to use fancy filters in Instagram I have started to produce some half decent photos.

Here’s a couple of examples that I took after reading the book. (don’t laugh, they’re a million times better than my previous photos from before reading the book!)

Conclusion

Overall, I was really impressed with this book and took a good few mornings reading it on my iPad while I had my morning coffee.

It was great to flick through and pick and choose which things I wanted to learn how to do and get some real inspiration on what I might like to do in the future like add great text to photos and creating montages.

I just wish it had a bit more theory on how to frame a photo and how to position the camera when taking the photos but that’s probably because I’m a coder and I need to see the.exact.steps :)

If you’re a blogger, marketer or business owner then I am pretty sure that you’ll find something in this book that will bring you a sense of value for money.

For less than $10 it’s a no brainer.
