An essential book - a great all-rounder,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Digital SLR Handbook (Paperback)
I recently bought a Nikon D40 after outgrowing a point and shoot and bought this book to try to flatten the learning curve. I found the book really helpful and learnt so many things that make me want to get out and take better shots and this book allows you to do that. In particular, it is great to have the benefit of a professional's experience when it comes to the workflow process and there are many sound ideas and practices in this book regarding taking the shots and ensuring that your workflow is solid and dependable. I also now fully understand the RAW v JPG debate and thanks to the book know when to use each, their respective merits and how to get the best out of RAW images. Incidentally, I have also got so much more out of my copy of Photoshop since reading this book. A great buy.
