Phototips – Getting it Right in Camera by Greg du Toit Photography has probably never been more popular that it is in this modern age. As a result there exists a plethora of articles and information on the subject, but an unfortunate byproduct of this is that there now exists a great amount of confusing white noise surrounding the subject – filled not only with copious amounts of jargon, but differing opinions too. “Getting it Right in Camera” is a book that cancels out this white noise, one which simplifies your camera together with all its buttons and functions (not to mention its dauntingly thick and badly written manual). By unpacking, in layman’s terms, the key camera settings and principles, this book explains not just how to set your camera but more importantly how to apply the various settings so that you capture breathtaking photographs capable of telling their own story. Included is a feast of photography from internationally acclaimed wildlife photographer Greg du Toit who also holds the title of Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2013. Each photograph has been included to inspire you along on your own creative journey and each serves as an example of how your camera settings can be harnessed and applied in the field, to capture dynamic award winning imagery. Practical tips and insights are given generously making this a book for every kind of nature photographer whether a beginner or a semi-professional.
