Practical Advice You Can Take Anywhere


If you're thinking about investing in a new Canon Rebel camera, you'll definitely want to check out the latest books from O'Reilly's popular Companion series.

Noted photographer Ben Long's "The Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS 1000D Companion" ($24.99) serves as a full-on photography class built specifically around the XS. Ben also authored "The Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi/450D Companion", which is tailored specifically for people who use that camera.

"By the time you're done with this book, you'll not only know how all the XS's controls function, but you'll also know how to recognize a good photo and how to use the XS's controls to represent that subject as a compelling image," writes Ben in the preface of "The Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS 1000D Companion." "In other words, you'll be a better photographer, whether you're shooting simple snapshots or aiming for something more."

Handily sized to fit most camera bags or even a pocket, the new book comes packed with Ben's creative tips and technical advice to help you capture stunning pictures anywhere, anytime--including professional-looking images of people, landscapes, action shots, close-ups, night shots, and more.
