Having only just discovered the real advantage of digital photography I was very pleased to have been recommended this super book. It covered all types of cameras and then fully explains the many ways to deal with you results. A truly helpful reference not to be without and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

When I read the title, I was a little but nervous what to expect as I'm not a big fan of the "Rough Guide" travel series. However, this book is a nice little guide on digital photography which describes various aspects of photography concisely. The book runs through various camera types, composition rules, photo editing software and websites and although none of it is very detailed, it might still give the beginning photographer some new ideas.

This is a really great little book that covers just about every aspect of digital photography you could think of - camera types, lenses, tripods, filters, memory cards, technical terminology, tables summarising settings like shutter speed and aperture pairings, composition tips, genres and influential photographers, processing software, printing, photo hosting sites and apps. True, from the perspective of 2015 some of the software and app recommendations will be out of date, but there's so much useful info in this little volume that I'm not surprised it's still in print unedited. Lots of gorgeous photos to inspire you and illustrate the topic in question, plus quicktips dotted throughout the book in coloured panels.

I was pleased to see that the technical aspects and practical tips (depth of field, freezing motion, using layers, colour balance etc) got at least as much airtime as composition - I think the latter is what makes your photos unique and can only be taught to a certain extent anyway, so why so many books spend pages banging on about the rule of thirds and trying to turn art into science I really don't know. Use this book to educate and inspire yourself - then go out and do your own thing!

If you are new to DSLR and need to get some real life examples of the possibilities, then buy this book, for the price you can't go wrong...

I feel I must write a review as this was so good. For a small book it has loads of info. The section about online sites is particularly good. This beats loads of expensive books and is great for a beginner.
