About the Author

Matthew Bamberg began his career in the arts as a graduate student at San Francisco State University in 1992. He completed his Master's in Creative Arts in 1997. His catalog of photographs consists of thousands of images from his travels in Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Argentina, Uruguay, Canada, Morocco, Russia, the Baltic states and countries throughout Europe. In 1999, Bamberg began photographing mid-century architecture and signage. His prints began selling locally and, later, all over Southern California. In 2005, Bamberg's book Digital Art Photography for Dummies was published. In 2008 Bamberg authored many books for Thomson Learning. His book The 50 Greatest Photo Opportunities in San Francisco, published in 2008, is still popular today. In 2009, his three books from the series 101 Quick and Easy Photography Secrets were published. In 2010, Bamberg authored New Image Frontiers--Defining the Future of Photography. In 2011, he authored Beginning HDR Photography and Photography Applications for Cloud Computing.

More About the Author

As a freelance writer Matthew Bamberg is currently working on articles for "Photography Monthly" and "Shutterbug." He also has photographed and written for the "Desert Sun," "Palm Springs Life" and the "Riverside Press-Enterprise."

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.

This book is designed to offer beginner to intermediate photo-hobbyists ideas for using their growing collection of digital photos.

It's that way with every topic - he doesn't skim the surface of a subject, he dives deep into the details.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book to see 101 things that I could do with my digital photos. There is some good information in here, especially regarding stock photography. However, a lot of this information is very basic and not original by any means. I would say that I liked about 20 out of the 101 "secrets" and pretty much already knew the rest of the "secrets". I'm happy I bought this book just for the stock photography chapter, even though I'm sure I could have found the information online. Overall, it was a good purchase, though you can probably find all the information you need (and a lot more) on the web.

Format: Paperback
Remember threading film into a camera, using a variety of lenses and filters, memorizing settings and adjustments to take photos with just the right kind of film, then waiting until the roll of film was developed to see how many, if any, photographs were successful? Though professional photographers doubtless continue this craft, the throngs of 'memory keepers' have submitted to the current state of the art image capturing processes of the digital camera, whether those images are from a sophisticated cell phone or a digital camera. Bu then another problem arises - what to do with all the 'pictures' loaded into the computer, e.g. how to save them, alter them, catalogue them, use them artistically, send them to friends, or enter the realm of professionalism by submitting them in the proper way for competitions or publications?

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

As a freelance photographer, I'm always reading up on the latest trends, both online and in print. For the first time that I am aware of, someone has actually broken free of the trend of explaining how to edit and take photos, and instead has compiled a book on what to do with your photos once you have created them, and moreover, what your photos can do for you in terms of promotion, getting paid for your photos, and best of all, how to use your photos to gain experience and networking with other photographers.

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.

I've probably read over a hundred photography books, from theory to technique to post-processing. So when I try to explain what it is I think I know about photography to people who take photos and yet don't do anything with them, it's hard to have a good framework to build off of.

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
