Customer Review

on 5 November 2005
For the beginner to the world of digital cameras, this is an excellent introductory book. It won't teach you how to become a professional photographer - but for the keen amateur, it'll show you how to get the best from the camera.
Nice, simple explanations, with clear diagrams of: why shutter speed makes a difference; what an Aperture is; and so on. The example shots are more 'my kids in the yard' than 'snows over Kathmandu'. But then, that's the kind of shots most of us are going to take, so it makes sense in this context.
It is very useful to have a book which covers editing images using PaintShopPro, which I suspect is much more commonly used among amateur photographers that the PhotoShop that other books assume you have. I think I will be referring to this section of the book more than any other.
The absence of colour illustration seems odd in a book about photography, though the black-and-white examples are clear enough to show what is being explained.
(I have the 2001 edition of this book, the later reprint may vary.)
