The Rebel T6i and Rebel T6i cameras are referred to as sibling devices taken from one DSLR line. In February 2015, Canon USA announced their intention regarding the popular line and promised its release for the end of April in the same year. The T6s, also dubbed 760D, has been considered by reviewers to be Canon’s current model for the Rebel line. The Rebel T6i or 750D, as it is also known, since its release has become known for its low cost appeal to buyers in the market. The devices both come equipped with an autofocus system in the form of a Hybrid CMOS Auto Focus 3. This enables autofocus accuracy and speed while capturing movies or during use of the camera’s live view feature. Also similar between the devices is the ISO sensitivity that ranges from one hundred to twelve thousand eight hundred, there continuous shooting capabilities of approximately five frames per second and a nineteen point auto focus system. The T6s and T6i also come designed with an interactive three inch swivelling display equipped with touchscreen functions and boasting one point zero four million dots. The new members of the Rebel line also share WI-FI and NFC connectivity and 1080p movie recording capabilities at approximately thirty frames per second. The T6s camera differs from the earlier Rebel lines with the innovative LCD panel located to the top of the device, a quick lockable control dial on the back of the camera, a built-in HDR for video shooting, a parallel level guide and a Servo auto focus during an active live view feature. The Servo feature is designed to enable users to monitor video capturing during burst shooting. It is most suited for the advanced photographer and mixes technology with modernity. The Rebel T6i boasts a three inch LCD monitor with ClearView 2 technology that allows for use at varied angles, continuous shooting at high-speeds, system designed for analyzing EOS scenes and innovative creative filters. Despite the differences, both devices offer users the highest quality as is now expected from Canon’s Rebel line buyers. This manual has been designed to widen the pool of knowledge concerning both devices and will seek to educate the populace on the features being offered. It is hoped that at the end of the guide, each user will be adequately outfitted with the requisite knowledge to maximize the enjoyment of the device as intended.

“Boudoir” photographs are intimate images created of a woman in a private (read intimate) space. The term “boudoir,” in translation, means “bedroom,” and images created in the boudoir style—whether they are indeed created in a woman’s boudoir or in a makeshift bedroom within the walls of a photographic studio—are strictly feminine. The subjects may be adorned in fine lingerie, or perhaps may be shown in the act of dressing—or undressing. The images are sensual, flirty, and always beautiful. Clients book boudoir sessions to celebrate their sensuality and femininity. For some, the goal is to document a special phase in life or simply to find a new way to see herself. Other women seek to book a boudoir session with the goal of providing a significant other with a highly personal and perhaps playful gift. Regardless of her motivation, her expectation is that her photographer will be able to amplify her assets, minimize any perceived figure flaws, and create a beautiful, evocative work of art. In order to meet—and exceed—her clients’ expectations, photographers must have a wealth of technical knowledge (just which camera angles, exposure settings, lens selections, and lighting patterns will create the desired look?) and a facility with coaxing form-flattering poses that lengthen legs, whittle waistlines, enhance the bust, and somehow look and feel natural, not contrived. The expression that is elicited must suit the mood of the image, too. And, of course, there are fragile egos at play. Yes, working with a scantily clad subject under the scrutiny of a lens is a tall order. Sadly, each of those concerns can seem magnified when working with the plus-sized boudoir subject. In this book, Tammy Warnock presents a tangible, easy-to-follow recipe for creating va-va-voom images of plus-size clients that celebrate every sexy curve. She introduces readers to 60 real-life subjects and investigates the intricate details of conceptualizing and crafting a sensational plus-size boudoir session. For each session presented for review, readers will learn about the client’s objectives (Why did she book the shoot? What was the mood or feeling or theme she had in mind?). Tammy will share the strategies she used to create rapport with the client, boost her confidence, and ensure a positive, praise- (and referral!) worthy experience. The artistic elements of the shot (backdrops, props, and styling) and corrective posing and lighting strategies are detailed as well, culminating in an inspiring and instructional framework that readers will rely on whenever any boudoir subject calls for services.

Scott Kelby, author of The Digital Photography Book, volume 1 (the world’s best-selling digital photography book of all time), is back with a follow-up to his volume 2 smash best seller, with an entirely new book that picks up right where he left off. It’s even more of that “Ah ha—so that’s how they do it,” straight-to-the-point, skip-the-techno-jargon stuff you can really use today to make your shots even better. This book truly has a brilliant premise, and here’s how Scott describes it: “If you and I were out on a shoot and you asked me, ‘Hey Scott, I want the light for this portrait to look really soft and flattering. How far back should I put this softbox?’ I wouldn’t give you a lecture about lighting ratios, or flash modifiers. In real life, I’d just turn to you and say, ‘Move it in as close to your subject as you possibly can, without it actually showing up in the shot.’ Well, that’s what this book is all about: you and I out shooting where I answer questions, give you advice, and share the secrets I’ve learned, just like I would with a friend—without all the technical explanations and techie photo speak.” Each page covers a single concept on how to make 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’re 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. This isn’t a book of theory—full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. This is a book on which button to push, which setting to use, and when to use it. With nearly 200 more 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.
