You need quite a few skills to master today’s highly-computerised digital cameras – as well as to understand their manuals.
This little pocket book (keep it in your camera bag) is filled with solid, practical advice, and even better, it is written by someone who has been a keen photographer for decades (not a camera technician!)
The book is aimed at those people who want to gain confidence in using their camera, and are keen to progress from always using the “automatic” button. Basic workflow procedures for downloading, culling, filing, editing are outlined. There are plenty of handy hints and practical advice for improving photos in different situations – people, landscapes, nature, night shots… And an appendix explaining those digital facts for re-sizing images,etc. is very useful.
Typical page – Little blue boxes throughout the book allow you to add details from your camera manual into the book, to save having to carry your camera manual with you. – Full of helpful tips to guide you with your digital camera.
