5.0 out of 5 stars A Must have for digital beginners 6 Nov 2007
By J. Oman
i am an absolute beginner and just purchased my new camera with loads of new features. i looked at other books but they seems to have a large section on choosing my camera, which is useless to me at this stage. when this book arrived i opened it to just flick through, but soon found myself taking the camera out, looking at it from all angles and doing the exercises with focus and light! very easy instructions on how to take pictures using different techniques to achieve certain shot style and all supported by pictures. there are pictures of what a good shot is and what a bad shot is, for each feature - which i found helpful because i could really see the difference and was aware of how much i could achieve with a little practice. the book covers all the features i wanted to know and more, so i can confidently say it saved me money on joining a digital photography class! get it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful, easy to read and packed with tips 26 Dec 2008
My recent camera purchase was a Lumix FZ50 and this book fits the bill exactly if you are starting to look at more serious aspects of photography. Explanations are plenty and very simple to digest and with chapters on specific photo subjects you can't go wrong. Great book.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent overview for beginning digital photographers 12 Mar 2007
By Jeremy Hall - Published on
As a semi-professional photographer I am often asked for camera and photography advice which I gladly provide. What I am more at a loss for is what you get is the best resource for someone trying to learn a little bit more of their own. This book is a great solution, for which I am keeping a copy around simply to loan out to those in this situation.

40 Digital Photography Technique is designed for the beginner and maturing intermediate photographer and does an excellent job covering everything from the basics of how to use your camera, to composition, how to shoot in various lighting situations, macro photography and much more. Though it does not go into great depth in any one of these subject areas, it is a great overview and touches on a lot of areas that new photographers may not think of. It attempts to be a beginner's guide and provide ideas and how to use on a wide variety of areas pertaining to photography, and it does a great job.

I highly recommend this title to anyone who has picked up a new digital camera or may have one laying around that they have not gotten as much use of as they thought they might have won about it. Your camera along with this book may become a new hobby and passion that you never knew you had within you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good entry level book 25 Aug 2008
By Marti - Published on

I purchased 8 books on photography after I completed a photography course.
This book was one of them. It covers many of the things I already learned in my course but gave some specific f-stops that my course instructor never told us.
My teacher felt we would learn more by taking the shots ourselves.
I disagreed.
I felt this book gave practical advice on how to set your f-stop to achieve the desired photo.
It is a book for the beginner and easily read.
There are lots of photos but I would have liked them to be a bit larger.
For anyone who did not take a photo course or has not figured out how to play around with your f-stops to get the desired shot, this is a handy book to read.
It also briefly touches upon diffusing the flash, exposure settings and other topics every photographer needs to know about, but in a general way.
Definitely not the book for intermediate or advanced photographers, but recommended for the beginner.

By Amazon Customer - Published on

4.0 out of 5 stars Great quick reference photo guide, although it needs updating 24 Feb 2014
By uktravailer - Published on
This is a super reference guide for beginners and intermediate photographers, as well as those who want to photograph something new. It includes chapters on basics of taking photos, equipment (dated), how to photograph people, landscapes and other objects. There is also a chapter on uploading photos to your PC and very basic processing.
Written in 2007, this book is in dire need of an update as technology has moved on so rapidly, but the basic chapters on composition and techniques will always hold true so it is worth it for this as a quick reference.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reseller 10 Dec 2012

I was a little concerned about buying this book with a description of other than "used", but this reseller said the copy was "in excellent, unworn condition. Unmarked text" and the price for a "new" copy was ridiculous (in my opinion) at between $78.00 and $148.00, so I decided to take a chance at $8.03 plus $3.99 shipping. I was expecting a slightly worn copy to come in the mail. Boy, was I surprised when the book arrived and I opened the package. If this copy isn't brand new, it must have sitting on some shelf in a retail store and been overlooked because there isn't a mark on it and the spine and pages shows no signs of it ever having been handled at all. This reseller is definitely true to his/her word. Thank you ever so much for your honesty and fair pricing. As to the book itself (content that is), I read it a couple of years ago when I took my first photography class and, since then, have realized how well put together it is. It is succinct and straightforward. It gives little nuggets of wisdom in plain English and is something I will revisit to refresh my memory on the basics, which I occasionally forget, as I'm advancing into the more advanced concepts.
