When I saw this book I was expecting another one of those books that provides a shallow overview of digital photography written by a highly respected traditional photographer. I was pleasantly surprised. The beginning lived down to my expectations, a typical formulaic intro, but this soon shifts a gear and has some great advice on shoot with a computer and calibration. Then in chapter 2 there are some excellent illustrated pieces on digital image editing with levels, histograms, selection tools explained well along with top advice in working with black & white. Then in chapter 3 we look at techniques, split into categories such as people, landscapes, nature and objects. Here we see some fine examples of how to take and edit pictures to enhance them. Theres a dodgy example of a digital panorama which looks like the author split the picture up to create the individual sections rather than the other way round, but otherwise excellent examples. Overall very well illustrated book with some excellent advice and well worth owning if you are new to digital but advanced users will also find loads of snippets of stuff they dont know. I certainly picked up quite a few ideas.
