Do you know that as a Malaysian, you cannot cash out your money from Paypal? That was what happened to me few weeks back. I got some money from some friends around the globe in my Paypal account. As I notice that I could not cash out the money, I use it to buy a book from Barnes & Noble. Luckily, B&N accept Paypal. I have another account from Amazon, but they did not accept Paypal as one of the payment processor.
I bought a book called “The Digital Photography Book” by Scott Kelby. It’s a book for beginner photographer who would like to improve their photography technique. The book is very brilliant, as it is written specifically for people like me who want to know the good technique of photography.
With nearly 200 of the most closely guarded photographic “tricks of the trade”, this book gets you shooting dramatically better looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos every time.
Each page covers a single concept that makes your photography better. Every time you turn the page, you’ll learn another pro setting, tool, or trick to transform your work from snapshots into gallery prints. If you are tired of taking shots that look “okay”, and if you’re tired of looking in photography magazines and thinking, “Why don’t my shots look like that?” then this is the book for you.
Good news for Malaysian. B&N ships to Malaysia, but it took about 6 weeks to arrive at your doorsteps. And, it’s about RM106 (including the shipment).
My verdict: 5/5…
Really good book for amateur photographer. Idiot proof. No alien technical photography jargon.
