There are seven chapters, a glossary, and a list of useful contacts. The book is well laid out with numerous example photographs, sidebars and captions. A reader is not overwhelmed by a sea of endless, uninterrupted text.
The first three chapters deal with camera types, lenses and essential accessories. I especially like the fourth chapter which explains camera basics and how to use all that your SLR has to offer. I can't read enough about aperture myself.
In the fifth chapter the reader learns about post processing using Photoshop or Photoshop Essentials. For someone like me who's just getting his feet wet with Elements, this chapter couldn't be handier. The tutorials are easy to follow with many helpful visuals.
Inspirational Photography in chapter 6 is for those who are ready to use their newfound knowledge with things like texture, self portraits, multiple exposure, flash, dodge and burn, and many other topics.
The last chapter deals with RAW imaging, what it is and what to do with thise RAW files once you've captured them. Again for someone who's unfamiliar with RAW, this chapter can be a just what the doctor ordered.
If I were to buy one photography book to keep on my shelf for ready reference and review, this would be it. The advanced photographer won't find it as useful.
It was written by an English author, based on some of the spelling (like colour) but thus far (and I've read about half of it) this hasn't been an issue.
Excellent!!! This whole Amazon transaction could not have been better!
This book also talks about the relationship between aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. There are lots of pictures to illustrate the effects of changing the aperture, shutter speed, or ISO. If you're a visual learner like me, you'll love this book. I highly recommend it to beginners and even advanced photographers who like to learn a few new tricks since there is a chapter on interesting photography projects.
2/3 of the book talks about Photoshop to enhance your image.
If you just started learning photography, this is the book you need. In fact, I will buy it someday.
