Book Description

1 Nov 2006
Digital imaging is no longer the province of the enthusiast or dedicated amateur. By end 2004, according to market estimates, the installed base of digital cameras worldwide reached over 200 million. Moreover, millions of people now make use of digital cameras built into mobile phones, producing countless images each year. "Complete Digital Photography" caters to a need not met by existing books, addressing the general public or lay person who simply wants to do a few basic things with their digital images. They do not expect to become skilled photographers, they do not aspire to semi-professional status, they do not want to work hard. They want to have fun, want to learn how to use their 'toys' only well enough to create satisfying images to give to friends. But they may well be bitten by the nature of the medium and wish to go a little further. "Complete Digital Photography" aims to inspire such readers and to provide hints and encouragement, without going into too much off-putting detail.

4.0 out of 5 stars Digital photography Tom Ang 22 Oct 2010
Visually this is a very pleasing book to look at. It mainly covers the process of image manipulation rather than pure photography, there is a small chapter which covers the actual taking of pictures. As most books do, it uses Photoshop to manipulate the images.

If you are looking for a book that will get you started on the best ways to take photographs it's not one I would recommend but it is full of useful tips on how to improve your images once you have taken them and for that I would recommend it. As with many books on this subject, you need a basic understanding of what they are talking about to make sense of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Complete Digital Photography Book 1 Aug 2006
By Thomas Seccombe - Published on Amazon.com
This is an excellent beginning and intermediate offering that uses actual photographs to demonstrate the effects of choosing various settings with digital photography. I would give it five stars if it included some additional charts or text information for exposure times and special photography conditions; weather effects night-time astro-photographic applications. It really is an excellent book though and I liked his comment, "the idea is not to get the camera to take a picture but to make the camera take the picture you want." Very good.
3.0 out of 5 stars Very Basic Intro to Digital Photography 13 Sep 2009
By Tbone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was hoping for a little more detail and insight into digital photography; this is a very basic guide. One of my complaints is that in a field that quickly changes, why people are still selling books that are this dated? Much of the info and the cameras examples given are a few years old and better guides/introductions to the field are now available. I am not saying this book sucks, or is a complete waste of time, since some of the information is good and useful. All I'm saying is books like this should not be sold as if it is the latest guide on the subject matter. Be more forthcoming on how old the material is. I blame the seller and not the author. This is an "OK" title at best and I would recommend a different title or a revised edition if available.
4.0 out of 5 stars really nice book 12 April 2008
By C. Hopkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really like the content of this book, easy to read and understand what is being conveyed. I looked at alot in this category at the library and bookstores before making my purchase. This one and "101 Great Things To Do With Your Digital Camera", Simon Johnson were by far the best. I looked at alot of books before I ordered. Both have great camera info and a nice section on editing tips. I use both and have been very happy with the purchase.
