This book helped explain many of the digital photography basics that I did not understand. I might add that it explains things in an easy to understand and to the point way.
I feel this book provided me with plenty of useful information to get going in the right direction.
All in all some good basic tips, logically laid out & easy to read. Having photographs to show the effects of different settings was lost on me (I have an older Kindle) as everything kind of looks the same in B&W. This was the only reason it got 4 stars, not five, but on a newer Kindle I'm sure they're fine.
Digital Photography For Absolute Beginners. Quick Guide to Getting Started is a calming voice that tells you not to worry about all the buttons and flashing stuff. Digital Photography For Absolute Beginners. Quick Guide to Getting Started... teaches you first how to take some pretty basic pictures that look good if you follow the directions. Digital Photography For Absolute Beginners. Quick Guide to Getting Started... builds on concepts you learn but also encourages new photographers to take risks and try new things using their DSLR's. Digital Photography For Absolute Beginners. Quick Guide to Getting Started... says often that the only and best way to become good at taking great pictures is by taking lots of crappy pictures and learning from each mistake until you get it right more and more often.
Digital Photography For Absolute Beginners. Quick Guide to Getting Started... does not smack you with a ton of knowledge it introduces you to photography as a fun and maybe profitable past time.
The biggest tell-tale that this book isn't worth your time: Not one photo in the book is credited to the author. They are all used under the creative commons license.
1) Only promotes DSLR cameras. If you're telling beginners not to spend more than necessary, you don't start them off with DSLR cameras. Should have suggested semi-pro, non-changable lens cameras that allow you to learn with program, shutter priority and aperture priority settings.
2)Editing software: Listed Photoshop CS6 without ever mentioning photoshop elements. Elements is only photo editing software, whereas CS6 is much more complex software used for design, painting, and photography.
There are many free versions of photo editing software available. Most cameras come with an editing software. Beginners should start with the software that comes with their camera, and sample more complex programs as they develop shooting skills.

This did not contain much that I didn't know. If you've used a cell phone camera before, you likely know 90% of this information. Also, there are typos in it.Published on July 17, 2014 by caseofhousekey
