About the multi-touch book.

EDITOR’s CHOICE AWARD & MOST INNOVATIVE APP AWARD 2014 (runner up)…read more under the review section.

‘Shaun Hines has put lots of care, time, and creativity into creating the book, and you’ll even want to pick it up over and over again not only for the information inside, but also just to see the beautiful illustrations…

…and if you’re going to recommend any book to a person still learning, hands down this is the one’. Chris Gampat, The Phoblographer.


‘The ebook is well designed and is a refreshing yet retro take on learning the camera basics.’ ephotozine.

Would you like to take full control of your camera?

Have automatic settings let you down when it’s counted most?

Are you about to embark on a special trip, attend an important social event or maybe you’ve been asked to carry out a little photography for work or a school project & you’re not convinced that ‘Auto’ is going to cut it?


As a photography tutor I’m aware of how complicated the subject can be. ‘Unravelling the Mysteries of the Little Black Box’ has been designed to look as unlike a camera manual as possible but a camera manual it is & it’s packed with all the information you need to switch from ‘Auto’ & take back control of your creativity.  A free sample of the book can be downloaded here.


‘This really is a well thought out book for beginner photographers. It’s only 98 pages, so its short enough that you can get through it in a weekend, at a reasonable pace. If you have someone in your life that has an interest in photography, but doesn’t know where to start, this would be perfect.’ iphonephotog, David Pasillas.
