Im a complete beginner to Digital Camera's and for me this book is just great. I like the way everything is explained in a nice and easy way. it may not be too everyones liking, but for me its as though Jason was there as I read ( like in a classroom ) along with my camera. My Nikon D300 is more of a friend to me now rather than something that seemed so complicated, that I was beginning to wonder if I could take photo's without using auto. Yes the book is printed in black and white, as are diagrams etc. But, you know what,I am shooting with more confidence, and my photo's look a lot better, sharper, more composed. Thank you Jason.
