Capture the Moment

By Sarah Wilkerson, CEO, Clickin Moms

Are you looking for the perfect gift for that hard-to-buy for person?  Do you have a budding photographer on gift list or even an experienced one who is always looking for tips and tricks?  Look no further than this book.

This book is beautiful, full of amazing pictures.  But, it also includes directions and guidelines to give advice from the amateur to the professional.  Each picture lists the camera used, lens, aperture, shutter speed, and ISO used in taking the picture.  Also with each picture is a tip about how to use light, lines or whatever the chapter is talking about.

There are six chapters: natural light, composition, storytelling, fine art, black and white, and low light.  It gives a reference to explain photography terms so the newbie can figure out what's going on.

I don't have a DSLR camera, but I'm hoping to be able to use some of these tricks anyway with my point and shoot camera and maybe, maybe someday in the future get a big, fancy camera and click away.

Even if you don't like photography, the pictures are fun to look at.  I think it would make a great coffee table book.  I would definitely recommend this book to anyone remotely interested in photography or even to anyone who just likes nice, classy-looking coffee table books, because the book itself is a hard cover beautiful book.

This book was given to me by Blogging for Books for the purpose of reading and writing a review.  All opinions expressed are my own.
