Another example of unevenness is the discussion of exposure and the use of f stop and shutter speeds. He did a good job of explaining the concept but failed to take the next step of explaining to the new photographer what dials to turn or menus to use to get the right f stop and shutter speed. Granted, all digital cameras are a bit different but they still have common features. And if you're putting yourself out as an expert, you should be able to at least point people in the right direction.
I knocked one star off my rating simply because I cannot say it is an "ultimate" guide. It is, however, a good, fast read that would give a novice a reasonably solid foundation, and I do recommend it as a starting point.
I disagree with the reviewer who knocked this book for lacking in specifics. This book is specific in its definitions and generalized when speaking on elements of composition and that, in my opinion, is out of necessity. There are simply too many variables to take into account (ranging from make & model of camera to lighting conditions to type of lenses, etc. ...) for one book to cover and not overwhelm a "beginner".
If you're a beginner or someone needing a quick refresher then I believe this book to be a great choice.
I'm glad I did.
This is a very well organized Beginner's photography guide that takes you from the basics of using a digital camera and all the way to creating and editing professional looking pictures. The information is presented in a very user friendly way, making it easy to understand the material.
I would highly recommend this for someone who is looking for a easy to understand, no frills guide to digial photography.
First up it has a review of the different types of cameras available, what they are good for and their limitations.
Then it goes into the full spectrum and analysis of taking good photos and includes areas such as:
Using light to improve photographs and an understanding of its importance.
Learning to control the aperture speed, differentiating between different types of camera.
Using and controling shutter speed.
& Basic photo editing techniques
It was new to me that using the zoom inside a compact digital camera will reduce the image quality slightly.
There is a lot of info that the book covers and it explains each concept in enough detail to get the point across. The language used is simple and to the point and a number of photos are used to illustrate the authors points.
Overall a very good guide that will greatly benefit people new to the field and also hand over some new tips to more experienced hands.
I was pleased to find that this is a very comprehensive book.
Digital Photography for Beginners talks about everything from choosing the right camera for you, to the most effective ways to use the flash, f-stops, aperture speed and editing the photo.
I really liked the conversational style of the book -- it made it very easy to read and understand and apply. I am glad I picked up a copy of this book; I know that I will refer to it often and I will take better pictures because of it.
I write cookbooks and would love to be able to take pictures of my prepared recipes. My point and shoot pictures are okay, but I picked up great hints to make them better. My lighting has not always been right.
Buy this book for a beginner or for someone who wants an easy to read guide on how to use their camera.
