Shoot to Thrill: A Hard-Boiled Guide to Digital Photography - This is a gutsy down-and-dirty book on how to achieve a certain look in photography. Anyone interested in shooting for a film noir appearance, or perhaps a ring flash look will marvel at this book.

The author, in a detective book style, teaches you how to get this most unique look to your images. In addition, he shows you how to grab breaking news photos as well as HDRI (High Dynamic Range Imaging) shooting.

About the Author: Derek Pellis is a writer, visual artist, and photographer. He's the author of more than 20 books, including Morbid Curiosities, Doktor Bey's Bedside Bug Book, Assassination Rhapsody, and The Little Red Book of Adobe LiveMotion. Novelist Robert Coover calls Pell "...a wordplay master and a parodist of great wit and cunning." Larry McCaffery declared him "the most wickedly funny writer in America." The New York Times Book Review referred to him as "a British misanthrope-humorist" — despite the fact he was born in New York City. He describes himself as "self-uneducated," although he attended The Art Institute of Chicago and The Goodman School of Drama.

Pell worked as a press photographer for United Press International (UPI) for several years. As a freelance photojournalist, his photographs have appeared in many newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times Sunday Magazine, Rolling Stone, Lens Culture, L.A. Weekly, The London Times, New York Magazine, Interview, The Village Voice, American Forests, and Zink.
