Format: Paperback
This book is probably most useful if you were more interested in science and the physics... it gives detailed descriptions of things to do with photogrpahy which may bore amatuers. It is useful if you want to give a course on the subject but it didnt help me out at all. If you are looking for techniques then I would recomend Steve Bavisters books that give you illustrations and not too much jargon; enough text for your information....

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for Digital Photography as Advertised 14 May 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book because as the title suggests is also for Digital Photography...but well...that is just pure marketing...It just have ONE page (pg.83) in reference to digital cameras.
I am very disappointed...wish I can return this book...
