About the Author
As a technical writer Darrell Young's specialty is explaining complex things in everyday language. Before he writes about a camera he first fully reads the user's manual, testing each setting and noting any improvements or differences from previous Nikon cameras. He then takes the camera out into the real world, shooting nature scenics, portraits, events, and action to discover how the camera performs for each style of photography. Next, he tests the camera with various lenses, flash units, and Nikon accessories. Only then does he start writing the book about the camera. His books are based on real-world experience and knowledge.
Living near Great Smoky Mountains National Park has given him a real concern for nature and a strong interest in nature photography.
Darrell loves to write, as you can see in the Resources area of the Nikonians.org community. He joined the community in 2000 and his literary contributions led to an invitation to become the founding member of the Nikonians Writers Guild.
Mastering the Nikon D800 is his eighth book in the Mastering the Nikon DSLR series.
