The Digital Photography Handbook has been a best seller in the UK, and this version is now fully updated to include the latest developments in digital technology.
This book is the perfect accompaniment for any photographer looking to learn more about photography as a whole. It starts from the very beginning, looking at digital cameras and their features before looking at different types of camera available to help you choose what is right for you.
The book then provides a guide to simple usage of digital cameras. Care and maintenance is covered, along with a guide to changing lenses correctly. Also provided is a guide to computers and computer software, printers and scanners, to help you choose the best equipment for what you want to do.
It then progresses to look at all the extra features you will need to use to get the best results from your camera, like tripods, monopods and remote releases, and extra flashes to take your photography to the next level.
There is then a large section of techniques and tips for using your digital camera, from correct composition of images to photographic ideas and overcoming common problems such as red eye.
The book also covers editing software in some depth, talking you through all the basic techniques for editing images and then manipulating them to create artwork.
This book truly covers everything, even going into copyright and how you can protect your images. If you are looking at getting into digital photography but don't know where to start, then this is the book for you.
