A Good Book for Novice Photographers
Reviewed in the United States on February 14, 2015
I recently purchased a new digital camera and got this book as a guide to help me understand the intricacies of using my new camera. This book does an excellent job of introducing you to the world of digital cameras. Beginning with the first chapter where Miotke, introduces you to the various modes on digital cameras, the book is easy to understand and follow. I especially liked his chapter on "Twenty Popular Photo Assignments" and have been following each of the assignments, not only to get to know my camera, but also to improve my skills. All of these assignments are completed using your digital cameras basic settings. No need to deal with aperture, shutter speed, etc. Although the book also includes two chapters on those very subjects if you want to get more advanced in your photography. For the time being I am happy just learning how to take better photos with my cameras automatic settings. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn how to take better photos with a digital camera.
