With more than a million copies of his 100-plus books in print, David D. Busch is the world's #1 selling author of camera-specific guidebooks, and the originator of popular series like David Busch's Pro Secrets, David Busch's Quick Snap Guides, and David Busch's Guides to Digital SLR Photography.

His twelve hugely successful books for Nikon digital cameras are the top-selling guidebooks for their respective camera models. He has also written the most comprehensive and best-selling guides for many different models from Canon, Sony, Pentax, and other vendors.

Busch's dozens of other books devoted to digital photography include Digital SLR Cameras and Photography for Dummies, David Busch's Digital Infrared Pro Secrets and Mastering Digital SLR Photography. As a roving photojournalist for more than 20 years, he illustrated his books, magazine articles, and newspaper reports with award-winning images. Busch has operated his own commercial studio, suffocated in formal dress while shooting weddings-for-hire, and shot sports for a daily newspaper and upstate New York college.

The graduate of Kent State University in Ohio operated his own photo studio and was a principal in one of the largest public relations firms based in San Diego, California, working on press conferences, press kits, media tours, and sponsored photo trade magazine articles for clients including Eastman Kodak Company and Hewlett-Packard. Busch has published more than 2000 photography articles under his by-line in more than 100 different publications. His photos have appeared on the covers of magazines, and in both print and television advertising.

Busch has become one of the leading photojournalist/authors worldwide. He has had as many as five books appear simultaneously in the Top 25 Digital Photography Books, and when Michael Carr of named the top five digital photography books for beginners, the #1 and #2 choices were his Digital Photography All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies and Mastering Digital Photography.

Product Description

From the Author

Works with PageMaker 6.5 Plus, too!
Although I don't cover the clip art and other minor additions to PageMaker 6.5 in the new Plus version, everything else in this book works great as a tool for teaching you to use this pervasive DTP tool.

What a great book! 12 Oct. 2000
By William Petersen - Published on
Format: Paperback
Despite what beginning DTP workers might think, you can't write, edit, and lay out any sort of book in less than a week, and you can't become an expert in less than 90 minutes. However, if you're willing to invest the time to learn how to do things right, this book will teach you everything you need to know. I'm using it both in my high school classes and in some courses I teach at our community college, and find that my students like the writing style, learn from the examples, and finish with a solid grounding in PageMaker techniques. Although Adobe doesn't seem to be promoting this program any more, there are lots of us who still find it useful, and I'm glad there are good books like this one available to teach PageMaker's fundamentals.
