More About the Author

Mark Burton is a photographer and writer from London, UK. He is passionate about telling stories with photographs and his work has taken him across Europe, Africa and the USA.

The photographs that are most important to Mark are the ones of his friends and family - and this is where the spark came for the Gadget Scientist book.

"My friends and family bought new digital cameras," Mark explains, "but they didn't know what all the buttons did, so the photo of their child's first steps came out blurry, or the spectacular sunset from their holiday was too dark. I then realised it was time to write a guide book everyone could understand, so they could capture the memories that are important to them."

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, Concise, Brilliant, What a Great Book 10 Feb 2010
I am really very impressed by this book. My oldest son is a budding young photographer and can always be found playing around with my camera, or pestering me for a go. The difficult part is teaching him how to use it. This book is the most accessible introduction to digital photography that I have ever seen. The pages of the book are uncluttered and simply present the information you need to know in a clear, graphical and highly stylistic fashion. It is not only the technical side that is covered however, there are plenty of great tips on composition, working with people, adapting to different conditions and more. Most of the photographs I take if I'm honest could have been a lot better. My hope is that with this little gem, they certainly will be. If you are looking for a practical and great book on digital photography, look no further that this.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gadget Scientist. 8 Feb 2010
What a fantastic little book! I recently bought a "point and shoot" digital camera for my Mum as she had wanted to start getting out more and to start recording what she saw. She had mixed success initially as the camera was a little too complicated and she kept asking how to do this and that with it. I had no clue, so bought this superb book for her recently and what a transformation! It is so concise and easy to use as well as being the perfect size for a coat pocket or handbag. The entire book contents is really well laid out, clear and logical. Unlike all the books that are supplied with cameras and all of the supposed specialist help books which just tend to be overblown an overly complicated this book gets straight to the issue you want to work on and gives you great solutions. It covers all aspects of photography from lighting to composition and beyond. Whatever your level of experience with a camera there is always more you can learn and this book really is the best I have seen. It has proven to be the perfect compliment to a great little camera. On behalf of my Mum, thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Gem of A Book! 27 Mar 2010
My husband won't let me steal his copy!

This little gem of a book makes clear in graphic detail many a photographic skill that's previously eluded me. Everything is made plain in such a concise, idiot-proof way, I've just ordered my own copy of this clever book.

Increasingly I need pics for publicity purposes, and this book is giving me the confidence to take my own.

Worth every penny!
