There’s nothing like the site of a FedEx truck pulling into my driveway. Usually it means that I am about to get some really cool new piece of photo gear. But yesterday it was even better because I received my author copies of my latest book, right from the printers. That’s right, my latest title, Canon T2i/550D: From Snapshots to Great Shots is finished printing and should be hitting the warehouses soon. I had a lot of fun writing this book because the T2i is such a great camera. Not only that but the crew at Peachpit did a fantastic job as always with the layout. It really is a great looking book if I do say so myself.
For those of you that have not seen one of my books, they aren’t your normal camera book fare. When I began writing the series (this is number 5 for me) I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t just offering up a re-hash of the owner’s manual. Instead I cover the most important camera features, and then I take it one step further. I tell you how to use them to make better photographs. Your owner’s manual does a good job of describing what a feature might do but it doesn’t necessarily tell you how or when to use it, but I do. So if you are a Canon T2i/550D owner give it a read and see if it is the right book to help take your photography to the next level.
By the way, if you own a Nikon D3000, D5000, Canon 50D, G10/11, 7D or T1i/500D, there’s a Snapshots to Great Shots available for you as well. Just check at your favorite book seller like Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and Borders.
