Canon's new EOS 50D bridges the gap between the novice and the seasoned pro with a perfect combination of high-speed and quality. For anyone who has upgraded from their point-and-shoot or first DSLR to a Canon 50D and wants to get the best shots possible but isn't sure what to do next.
There's the manual of course, as well as competing books, and while they all tell 50D owners, often in 400+ pages, what the camera can do, none of them shows them exactly how to use their camera to create great images!
Canon 50D: From Snapshots to Great Shots has one goal: to teach 50D owners how to make great shots using their Canon camera. It teaches them how to use their 50D to create the type of photographs that inspired them to buy the camera in the first place.
Everything in the book is in service of creating a great image. Starting with the top ten things they need to know about their camera, photographer Jeff Revell then carefully guides them through the Basic modes and into the Advanced modes of the camera.
They'll get practical advice from a pro on which settings to use when, great shooting tips, and even end-of-chapter assignments that will allow 50D owners to immediately put to use all the great info in each chapter.
Jeff Revell has been shooting professionally for more than 25 years, and has a wide range of expertise in everything from landscape to travel to urban photography.
Widely known as the photographer behind the popular Photowalk Pro blog (revellphotography.com/blog), Jeff shares inspirational images, hosts lively discussions, and creates tutorials on digital photography techniques.
