    One very difficult thing to do with a digital camera is taking professional quality photos. This is because getting a clear image can be difficult, and adjusting the light levels may need to be done by hand. This is why it is an exceptionally good idea to use a digital photography guide. A digital photography guide can show a camera owner how to adjust light levels manually, how to reset the focus features on a camera, and how to add filters.

    Anything. It was awful.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Digital Photography Guide?

    Any additional comments?

    Don't even waste your time reading any reviews. This was worthless and out of date and difficult to even listen to.

  • Beer is Proof that God Loves Us: Reaching for the Soul of Beer and Brewing

    Legendary beer expert Charlie Bamforth presents the most compelling social history of beer ever written: where it's come from, and where its headed. From centuries-old cultural values to radical new approaches, craft brewing to globalization, it's an amazing story. Bamforth tells it all with humor, behind-the-scenes insight, and sheer joy!

    Joshua Clark says: "I wanted to like this book, I really did."
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    I was disappointed that this seemed much more about corporate history and about the author (with a nice commercial for the corporation that brews Sierra Nevada) than it was about beer itself, which the title and subtext implies. A brief skim about medical research on alcohol and an even briefer tips about beer itself seemed thrown in to justify the title. I was sorry to waste my money and time on it.

    Keller possesses all the qualities of a professional killer. He's cool, confident, reclusive, icy, and ruthlessly efficient. But this seasoned hit man is also prone to self-doubt as he finds himself caught in the clutches of a mid-life crisis.

    Barbara A. Russell says: "Surprisingly Terrific"
    "a favorite"
    Overall

    This is one of my favorite listens of all times since it came out on tape years ago. I have listened to it at least three times and never grow tired of it. I have been waiting for it to be available on Audible so that I can share the joy with friends. it's not the plot, but the man and his way of evaluating his moral and lifestyle dilemmas that's just terrific. Keller is an interesting lonely guy who just happens to be contract killer. His agent, Dot (Daht) is a hoot. Forster's reading and Chicago accent make a huge contribution. The recent Hit Parade is satisfying, but the author's voice isn't Keller, Forster's clearly is. For the bargain price, get this book and savor it.
