5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent beginner's photography guide June 7, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked up this book for my 14 year old who is very interested in photography.
I'm glad I did.

This is a very well organized Beginner's photography guide that takes you from the basics of using a digital camera and all the way to creating and editing professional looking pictures. The information is presented in a very user friendly way, making it easy to understand the material.

I would highly recommend this for someone who is looking for a easy to understand, no frills guide to digial photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bevy of tips for the aspiring photographer June 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good overview book for any person that is looking to improve their photography skills and doesn't know too much about the field. Although more experienced hands may also find a number of new tips that they previously did not know.

First up it has a review of the different types of cameras available, what they are good for and their limitations.

Then it goes into the full spectrum and analysis of taking good photos and includes areas such as:

Using light to improve photographs and an understanding of its importance.

Learning to control the aperture speed, differentiating between different types of camera.

Using and controling shutter speed.

Using Flash.

& Basic photo editing techniques

It was new to me that using the zoom inside a compact digital camera will reduce the image quality slightly.

There is a lot of info that the book covers and it explains each concept in enough detail to get the point across. The language used is simple and to the point and a number of photos are used to illustrate the authors points.

Overall a very good guide that will greatly benefit people new to the field and also hand over some new tips to more experienced hands.

2.0 out of 5 stars Uneven book with some good tips December 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book includes some good tips on the art of photography including light and composition and the use of flash but I wouldn't recommend it to a beginner, especially one who is trying to decide what kind of digital camera to buy, or even one who has just bought a camera and is trying to figure out how to use it. I got the sense that the author understands how to take good photographs but doesn't really know much about different kinds of digital cameras. For example, he differentiates between SLRs that are digital and Digital DSLRs. I've not seen anyone else make this distinction and his explanation was so sketchy it left me scratching my head as to what he was trying to say.

Another example of unevenness is the discussion of exposure and the use of f stop and shutter speeds. He did a good job of explaining the concept but failed to take the next step of explaining to the new photographer what dials to turn or menus to use to get the right f stop and shutter speed. Granted, all digital cameras are a bit different but they still have common features. And if you're putting yourself out as an expert, you should be able to at least point people in the right direction.

I like to take photographs and has been using my very cheap digital camera to take pictures. But the guides that I found on the internet are very expensive and most of them are mainly for the professional photographers. As my kids are young, I like to capture their growing years and digitized it for memories down the years. Also, I am very confused on the what are the lenses to use, how to maintain your digital camera, and how to choose a good and value-for-money digital camera. Thank goodness, I stumbled upon this book on Amazon and without delay, I bought it and starting reading. Although the book does not have a click-able table of contents, I still enjoy reading and applying what it is taught there. I hope the author can update the book. Overall, the book has great information for the beginners learning about digital photography. A great book. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short, sweet and to the point December 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Gave this book a "4 star" rating because I feel it mostly delivered upon the promise made by it's title and it's inexpensive price. "Digital Photography for Beginners" by Darren Rowland covers the basics needed to get a general idea of what goes into taking quality photos.

I knocked one star off my rating simply because I cannot say it is an "ultimate" guide. It is, however, a good, fast read that would give a novice a reasonably solid foundation, and I do recommend it as a starting point.

I disagree with the reviewer who knocked this book for lacking in specifics. This book is specific in its definitions and generalized when speaking on elements of composition and that, in my opinion, is out of necessity. There are simply too many variables to take into account (ranging from make & model of camera to lighting conditions to type of lenses, etc. ...) for one book to cover and not overwhelm a "beginner".

If you're a beginner or someone needing a quick refresher then I believe this book to be a great choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another title to start with December 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|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.
