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.
