More About the Author
Curious by light striking his lens (direct and bold or soft and willowy) and the sounds (especially of the shutter opening and closing), he struck a relationship first with film and then, like so many, with the digital camera's sensor.
Bamberg also has sold his photographs in many Southern California stores and galleries. His books, "Digital Art Photography for Dummies" and three books in the "Quick and Easy Secrets" photography book series describes the process from taking the picture to printing and framing it.
In his book, "New Image Frontiers--Defining the Future of Photography," Bamberg interviewed top world engineers, photographers and gallery owners seeking to find answers to sensor research, new camera models (including the new mirrorless line manufactured by a number of companies), and sought an answer the proverbial question: "How does a photographer get his work into a gallery?"
Currently, two new state-of-the-art books--Beginning HDR Photography and Photography Applications to Cloud Computing have been released by Thomson Learning.
Aside from his writing about f-stops, shutter speeds, and the fabulous job the digital camera manufacturers have done that permit photographers to take almost noiseless pictures in the dark at high ISO speeds, Matt teaches photography at UCR and writing at the the University of Phoenix.

Once again photographer/teacher Matthew Bamberg shares his expertise as he has in his other books. In a very user friendly way he takes the reader/digital photographer by the hand and provides visual examples of all the instructions anyone would need about how to deal with the digital camera image. This is a not only a fine 'how to' book: this is sophisticated guide to finding the extensive possibilities inherent in those little palm size cameras - with a disc instead of a roll of film and a manual for instantly visualizing and altering the results of an outing instead of waiting for an exposed roll to be returned. He provides step by step instructions that leave no stone unturned. Read this book, keep it by the computer, and your needs for greeting cards, scrapbooks and family memento albums will be satisfied. Well worth adding to the desk library! Grady Harp, October 09
Chapter 1 is a primer on what most other digital photography books cover; basic editing, backing up, sorting, sharing, etc.
Chapter 2 talks about sharing. Matthew has mentioned a variety of websites that can be used to share your photos. We have all heard of Flickr, Shutterfly, and Photobucket, but nobody ever talks about Facebook and MySpace being used for photo sharing, until now. There are, of course, many more sites mentioned in this chapter.
Chapter 3 discusses sharing photos with family and friends, discussing photos at meet-up events, and creating photo-related websites.
Chapter 4 is all about making prints from your photos, which is something that the digital era has somehow made people forget that you can still get prints on paper. I'm partially guilty of this trend, too, by the way.
Chapter 5 tells you about scrap booking. My fiancee would love this! Believe it or not, but there are free digital scrap booking solutions out there as well. This chapter discusses them in detail.
Chapter 6 is my favorite. If you ever considered creating a photo blog, this chapter is for you! Blogger, WordPress, and other popular platforms are discussed and compared.Read more ›
I'm really impressed by the 101 Quick and Easy Secrets book. This book walks you through the entire process, from copying the photos off of the camera to editing to posting them, and even trying to make a bit of money off of your photos. Something like this I could easily give to my mom along with a camera and I feel comfortable that she could use this book as a good guide. I don't want to say that the book is dumbed down by any means, but it is rather simple, which is both a strength and a weakness.
The book does have timely information about the cost of online services (photo hosting sites, attachment limits of email programs, etc) that is helpful but could be outdated soon. But it does help give ideas of where to start. Sadly, it missed out my personal recommendation for photo hosting, Fotki.
What I really liked is the advice on photo printers - we all seem to lust after them, but the cost of the consumables and the relative ease of getting prints makes them a questionable purchase. Again, Bamberg does a good job in explaining this in simplistic terms without being condescending.
There is no perfect introduction to digital photography book, however, this book will give you a good framework in which to get started in developing your own workflow and to lead you to other books, like the ...Read more ›
