5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of Useful Information August 30, 2012
By Jeffrey
I bought this book to help me improve on my picture taking skills. Like many people, I have been taking pictures for many years, yet I consider myself to be still stuck in the beginner stages of photography.
This book helped explain many of the digital photography basics that I did not understand. I might add that it explains things in an easy to understand and to the point way.
I feel this book provided me with plenty of useful information to get going in the right direction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book Short on Content September 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
This book is a great book for the person who is an ABSOLUTE beginner to dSLR or to digital cameras as a whole. Would have loved to have seen more content than what the book had but what was there was written well and would recommend this book to anyone who wants to start with digital photography.

4.0 out of 5 stars For my wife, to start December 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
I've been helping my wife with her new dslr camera, but I also downloaded a few books to help her understand basic fundamental concepts. As the title says, it's for beginners! If you already know what aperture means and how you can use it, it's not for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars True to it's Title & Promise September 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
Yes, it's called Digital Photography for Absolute Beginners, and this book delivers on it's promise. It is basic information, but actually has some very sound suggestions that even a more experienced photographer will see value in. I'm probably a bit more experienced than an "absolute beginner", but even I wished I'd read a book like this before investing in a B&W filter for example, as I've always struggled with digital photography software, and I had no idea most software would accomplish the same effect as that expensive filter does.

All in all some good basic tips, logically laid out & easy to read. Having photographs to show the effects of different settings was lost on me (I have an older Kindle) as everything kind of looks the same in B&W. This was the only reason it got 4 stars, not five, but on a newer Kindle I'm sure they're fine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just okay August 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
The book did give basics but I was expecting more of a how to. It really doesn't explain the settings as I would have liked. If you are looking for a book to direct you in equipment this is fine.

1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of money
I knew it was a very short book but thought I'd try thinking it would at least explain the language of DSL photography, I was wrong. It was a waste of money and my time.

4.0 out of 5 stars For first time photographer
This book is for baby new photographer. It provides a basic view of what photograph is. There is no technical view of what settings do. It is a simple introduction.

Not really the information that I was looking for. I was looking for a more detailed photography book and instructions on different camera settings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Beginners--right in the title
This brief book (pamphlet, really) is super basic. If you know the least bit about cameras, this isn't for you. If you've been living under a rock, this might be useful to you.
