Does what it says on the cover!!
on 1 August 2010
Having recently purchased a Nikon DSLR D3000, and wanting to get more from it than just using automatic modes, I set about to find a good book for complete DSLR beginners.
I found this book to be written in easy to understand language, jargon is broken down so you can understand what it all means and gently pushes you along to want to take 'creative control' and just mess about with the settings, but understand the settings so you can begin to create the look you want.
If you really are a complete beginner and have moved up from your point and click automatic to the world of DSLR, then I would recommend this book to you. If you already have a good idea what the settings are and know about fstops etc, then it might be a bit too basic and no doubt other publications that go into more technical details will be more appropriate.
