The photos in it are beautiful and the instruction provided, easy to follow.
Milwaukee Reader
This is one of the best book to learn about photography, written by a real professional photographer, I will recommend to any amateur or beginner photographer.

Sure there are different ways to see things, but as the first book I read about photography, I really enjoy it.

I love this book. First it brings together the talents of my two photography heros, Jay Dickman and Jay Kinghorn and second it makes you better as both a photographer and in the digital darkroom.
As a returning college student majoring in photography I was leary about taking Adobe photoshop class. I have CS4 on my PC, but had no idea how to fully utilize it until I got this book. Now I'm not only ready to take the photoshop course I can't wait to do so and apply what I've learned in this book. Jay Kinghorn is an Adobe certified photoshop expert and what he shows you is like taking a course. He leaves nothing uncovered in teaching photoshop and I love to use my CS4 now. Jay Kinghorn has some outstanding photos in this book. It's not a wonder that both he and Jay Dickman are Olympus Visionaries.
Jay Dickman teaches you about the camera, how to choose it and use it. Jay is a Pulitzer Prize winnning photographer and he shares his talent with us. My photography has improved 100% and people have noticed thanks to this book. I shoot in RAW something I hadn't tried until I read Perfect Digital Photography. since my courses are still covering JPEG.
Perfect Digital Photography covers it all. It's easy to use and understand. Color photos through out which are not only amazing, but will inspire your photos, I know they did mine.
Add this book to your photography collection, I promise you won't be disappointed.

This wonderful book teaches you in detail everything there is to learn about DIGITAL photography. Digital being the key word here. The first bit of the book focuses more on the functions of the camera and techniques, the second lot goes in depth about using Adobe Photoshop to edit your pictures. Camera techniques are guided to you by National Geographic photographer Jay Dickman. Jay Kinghorn is an Adobe Photoshop Certified Expert, so you are getting instructions from one of the best. This is a world class team! I would recommend this book to any photographer interested in getting a better understanding of their camera, how it works, how to use it, and how to best work in a digital darkroom.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Alex Atterbury on September 4, 2011
Format: Paperback
I've read over dozens of photography books and they have all suffered for the lack of something (detail, digital info, info on composition, etc). The best ones I'd read were over 20 years old, as they at least taught you how to take photos. My disappointment was mostly that I know how to use my camera pretty well, so I end up skipping 90% of the book.

Until this book, that is.

What I wanted (and what this book offers):
(1) Info on composing images based on different scenarios with depth and examples
(2) Guidance on how to improve after I'd grasped the basics
(3) Detailed instructions for practical applicator of advanced editing techniques in Lightroom and Photoshop

Seriously. I've read all the others and this one is just better.

Jay Dickman and Jay Kinghorn are wonderfully talented men. This book is an inspiration and I found, a necessary technical text to have in my, library as a reference. It has taught me post capture skills in photoshop and lightroom and about equipment and accessories for in camera work. It is a book for the serious amateur and those looking for advanced, in camera and post capture technique. Jay Dickman gives wonderful insight into the power of photography and the techniques that help to make it so. His Images are inspiring and make you want to go discover the world and do a better job photographing it! He gives great advice in dealing with people, as well as equipment, technique, some amazing ways to use lighting and how to shoot some zany situations, I was awe struck by his police car shot and how he accomplished it, amazing! you certainly learn how the pros do it! Jay kinghorn gives step by step instruction into post capture, in Lightroom and Photoshop. You will learn about colour management, the art of printing, editing, file types, image resolution, creating great black and whites and much, much more! I found this book informative and inspiring, it's not a book to sit and read from cover to cover in one hit, its an inspiring text book and a must have, for me anyway, as a guide, reference and inspiration!

this is my favorite digital photography book that I have found. I teach digital photography and find this book to be praise-worthy. the two Jay's are genuinely talented photographers, so the images are way above what has been acceptable in textbooks for far too long. the updated digital info is great, in fact I like their LR instructions better than the LightRoom-only book that I purchased. There is a lot of technical information in here, but above that there is an understanding that the technical is there so that you can use the camera. It is a beautiful and motivating book.
Not great for the absolute beginner, better for someone that has some knowledge of photography, or is transferring over from film.

I like this book a lot, but am disappointed that most if not all the examples and detailed explanations are geared toward Mac computers rather than PC's. Since I have a PC, the book isn't as helpful as I had hoped it would be in learning Lightroom 3--which does have a bit of a learning curve!
