2.0 out of 5 stars too simplistic, September 15, 2009

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Digital Photography Book, Part 3 (Paperback)
I passed on the first two volumes, as good as they might have been, because I considered them too basic, but figured I would give the 3rd book a chance. Well, it too is pretty darn simplistic; and I returned my copy.

Very light reading, considering this is the 3rd in the series, and many items could be learned by simply reading the manual that came with your camera; like how to power down your flash via the flash exposure comp button. How about the page devoted to carrying a back-up flash on a pro shoot. Really?

I like Scott's software books, his blog, and these books may be great for the beginner but if you have at least some experience I suggest saving your money. Take a look at the books by Kirk Tuck for starters.
