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 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.

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.

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 Skip it. January 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
No discussion on what makes a good photograph, framing, composition. A little info on DSLR cameras, but nothing to help a beginner decide what features will help them get started. No explanation of what the panning feature is or how to actually use it - just shows a couple of pictures and says experiment.
The biggest tell-tale that this book isn't worth your time: Not one photo in the book is credited to the author. They are all used under the creative commons license.

1) Only promotes DSLR cameras. If you're telling beginners not to spend more than necessary, you don't start them off with DSLR cameras. Should have suggested semi-pro, non-changable lens cameras that allow you to learn with program, shutter priority and aperture priority settings.
2)Editing software: Listed Photoshop CS6 without ever mentioning photoshop elements. Elements is only photo editing software, whereas CS6 is much more complex software used for design, painting, and photography.
There are many free versions of photo editing software available. Most cameras come with an editing software. Beginners should start with the software that comes with their camera, and sample more complex programs as they develop shooting skills.

This did not contain much that I didn't know. If you've used a cell phone camera before, you likely know 90% of this information. Also, there are typos in it.
