Ultimate Exposure

David Nightingale
Authors:
David Nightingale

Exposure is photography's fundamental concept. Master it, and you'll master photography.You don't need a book to take good photos any more; most (but not all) of the time your camera, or your phone, will handle things for you. But if you don't know what it's doing - you don't know how to expose photos - you can't join in the real fun of photography.With this book, though, you'll quickly master the key principles, and grasp a few simple concepts that will open up a world of beautiful sunsets, clever silhouettes, light trails and bokeh - as well as sophisticated techniques like HDR, manual exposure blending, and focus stacking.Armed with this knowledge the digital photos you share will stand head-and-shoulders above the rest, and you'll have no problem using that film camera or used Polaroid you picked up at that garage-sale.

Gardening on a Shoestring: 100 Creative Ideas

Alex Mitchell
Authors:
Alex Mitchell

In our increasingly busy and chaotic world, more and more of us are turning to gardening as a way to create a pleasant space to be in. However, as we continue to tighten our purse strings, the cost can make the pastime a source of further stress rather than one of pleasure. Alex Mitchell's Gardening on a Shoestring is full of inventive ways to achieve the garden you want on a budget, whether you are creating one from scratch or improving what you already have. Packed with money-saving tips, it combines classic gardening skills with simple, creative ideas. Sometimes it's about going back to the old ways of doing things, techniques in danger of being forgotten; other times it's about adapting to the new, saving money on equipment by making your own from inexpensive materials or knowing how to get bargains from nurseries and garden centres. So learn how to prune before you panic buy, grow food for peanuts, create pots for a pittance, propagate plants for nothing and make your own plant feed from weeds - all for next to nothing.
