“Beth has created what might be the best introduction to photography guide I’ve read: Getting Out of Auto. If you have a camera, especially an SLR, and you are shooting in automatic mode (aka “P” for programmed), then this is the book for you.

It is a better reference than anything I’ve found browsing at Barnes & Noble and at $9.99 it is also cheaper than any other introductory book you can find. I keep a copy of the ebook on my iPad just so I can show others.”

– Gary Arndt of Time Magazine’s 2010 Best Blog,

– Brooke Schoenman of

Getting Out Of Auto is over 70 pages long and is comprised of 4 sections. Here’s a little sneak peek at what’s inside:

Section 1:

Section 1 is dedicated to exposure.

It’s 13 pages of double column text that talks in detail about Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. I included example photos for each topic, and I also included examples that show how the three cornerstones of exposure work together to create the perfect photo.

The following screenshot is an example of section 1:

Section 2:

Section 2 talks about the next step in creating your photo – composition!

Example images are shown for each technique to help illustrate the points. I know this is an area that is tough for many people starting out, so this 20 page section describes in detail what goes into creating a stand out composition and delves deep into other creative ways to make your photos sing:

  • The Rule of Thirds  – What it is & how to use it.
  • Beyond the Rule of Thirds – Learn how to break the rules successfully to create unique images.
  • Guiding the viewers eye – It’s the photographer’s  job to guide the viewers eye through the photo. Learn why this vastly unknown trick is so important and how you can use it to improve your photos.
  • It’s all in the details – Learn how to pay attention to small details and give your photos impact that sets them apart from the crowd.
  • Depth of Field – Includes a simple explanation of what depth of field is, how and why you would use a large depth of  field & a small depth of field, how to create different effects with different depths of field, and what types of photos look best with a small or large depth of field.
  • Blur – How to harness & create blur and use it to achieve your own unique images.
  • Putting It All Together – An in-depth example on using Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO together to create images that incorporate depth of field, blur and stopping motion. It elaborates on why you would use one over the other to create the look you want.
  • The Power of the Self Timer – Four unique ways to use your self timer to help you shoot more complex photos – including night photography & street photos.

Section 3:

Get The Shots No One Else Does!

Section 3 is all about light – finding light, seeing light, feeling light and creating light.

This section is 14 pages long and talks about the basics of white balance and metering, but it also goes into detail regarding shooting in different types of light. It includes how to’s for shooting into the sun and capturing great sun flare, shooting silhouettes, and using fill flash. It also includes tips for shooting on grey, overcast and rainy days. Instead of putting your gear away and calling it a day, I discuss several ways to make the most of bad weather and get shots that no one else will. This chapter also discusses becoming a light hunter and how you can use ordinary objects to create the light you need for your image.

Below are two examples of Section 3: 

Section 4:

Section 4 is very popular – this section is all about tricks, cheats and tips!

In this section you’ll learn how about: 

  • The Dreaded Camera Shake – what it is and how to avoid it even without the use of a tripod!
  • RAW?? – Learn the difference between shooting RAW files or JPEG files.
  • Food, Oh Glorious Food!  – Make ’em hungry! Step by step instructions on how to shoot fabulous food photos. Complete with examples for each step and instructions that show how two dull looking Smore’s can become a stand out food shot. All the example photos take place on a back porch, without the use of any special equipment – the type of situation you might run into on your travels or in your own home.
  • HDR (High Dynamic Range) – Simple, blow by blow instructions for creating your own HDR photos from start to finish – even with a Point & Shoot camera!
  • Composition Extras – Take your photos to the next level! Real life examples on how to find great composition in even the most mundane objects.
  • The Power of Cropping – How you can use this simple yet powerful (and often overlooked) compositional tool to improve your photos during the editing process.
  • Cheat Sheets – Heavy hitter tools for your photo toolbox. An exposure cheat sheet you can print and take with you in the field and two cut out composition tools that will put you ahead of the curve.
