The camera manual was helpful to a point, especially in explaining which button and dial does what, but got too complicated in explaining what happens when you push or rotate said buttons and dials, and how it affects your photograph.
Within a page or few, the light clicked on about underexposed and overexposed images, fast and slow shutter speeds, depth of field, and ISO. I am now practicing shooting in Aperture mode (A), which is a huge step up from Auto, and although I'm not quite ready for Manual mode (M), I can see it in my future.
Written in simple conversational language with practical scenarios, this guide spends a lot of time on exposure, but also incorporates everything from holding the camera properly, to shooting landscapes, sunsets, moving subjects, RAW files, portraits, night scenes, star trails and HDR. It even gives tips on buying cameras, lenses, equipment and software.
The only thing missing in this Kindle version are some of the examples and illustrations to go with the concepts covered. Also recommended is a visit to the author's website ImprovePhotography.com where you can get daily tips with full colour examples.

2. The book describes in human terms the terminology so you slowly can get into the scene
3. While reading the book even if you don't own a DSLR camera, you can still learn what you like in a camera in order to better buy a camera in the future.
4. The book explains to you how to buy a camera and the lens to match
So that about 4 things I really liked about this book :), I must say that since I started reading the book I begin discovering the mistakes I make while taking a photo, and as it appears those were critical to the results of my camera.
The book was very helpful also in teaching me new techniques and I feel that now I can take a decent picture at any given scenario, and in some scenarios an awesome photo.
The book doesn't cover photography from A to Z but it certainly cover it from A to F, the rest is more advanced books or just plain old self tutoring.
If your interested in getting into photography - I highly recommend this book.
If I learned at least one thing from the book that would improve my ability to get the exposure I want, then this book would have been good. But I learned a lot more--it mostly filled the holes in my knowledge and helped me to think of the concepts in ways that were much more accessible and useful. Yay! I really enjoyed it and read in it one sitting. Thank you!!!! Also, pretty convenient to have it in my kindle app so I can go back to highlighted parts during pre-shoot.
I will definitely reread this book a few times because I'm sure I'll read it different every few months as I improve.
If anything, if you feel bummed out about your shots, the author touches on many different techniques that may just breathe new life into your photography. :) Not just for beginners.
