Making Beautiful Photography: A Guide for the Novice and the Enthusiast is a how-to book by Jason Greiner and can be found on Kindle here: https://www.amazon.com/Making-Beautiful-Photography-Novice-Enthusiast-ebook/dp/B01DS7RGNA/ (NOTE: I do not receive any royalties or kickback from the sale of this book)
As a how-to book Making Beautiful Photography is aimed at the beginner and the early-amateur. Jason goes over the basic lingo of photography, explaining camera settings and basic concepts in a simple and easy to follow manner. Each step and setting is illustrated with original photos.
The photos add a lot to the book, making the material easier for the visual learning, and making it feel less like a text book and more like an informal and friendly guide book. His tone is helpful and experienced without sounding condescending or arrogant.
The book was fairly short, even with the photographs but it covers a lot including lighting and composition. I gave this book 4 stars.
