Description

The Complete eBook Guide to Digital Photography, Volume 1 Digital photography is confusing. Really, you’re not alone in thinking that it’s not easy to understand all the terms and topics. 

After teaching and writing about photography for decades, author David Schloss started to notice that everyone seems to have the same questions—”What camera should I buy? What’s a good flash? How can I take better photos of my kids? How do I get my photos on Facebook?”

Forget what the camera companies say, everyone has the same questions because digital photography requires you to know all sorts of things before you even start to make good photos. Sure you can “point and shoot” but do you know that you could be getting more out of your images. And you want to be getting better photos. 

This first volume in a three-volume set will walk you through all of the important things you need to know to select, buy and use cameras, lenses, flashes, accessories, computer hardware, computer software and more. Volume 2 will cover the fundamentals of photography and provide clear, easy-to-understand instructions and Volume 3 will show you how to work with your images once you’ve captured them.

This book was conceived, written and designed as an eBook. What’s the difference? Most print books are designed to have sidebars, photos and design elements all over the page. In print they’re attractive additions but when you convert a book to an eBook you’ve got to figure out how to handle all of those different graphical elements. eBooks (at least in their current incarnation) work best when photos and tips come inline with the text and when the design is clean and simple, so that’s what we’ve done here.
So instead of taking a print book and squeezing it into the eBook format (which sometimes ends up with a book that’s hard to read and a bit confusing) we wrote a book for eBook readers. 
Each section explains everything you need to know in clear terms without jargon. When you’re done with this book you’ll know what gear is right for you and you’ll be ready to use it.

    The book covers basic photographic information but is not a how to book. You'll be disappointed if that is what you were looking for. I would have given four stars but the book was obviously not proofed before publishing as there are a quite a few glaring grammatical errors. The last chapter of the book is nothing but an advertisement for Apple products.
  • Great resource for the novice

    What a great eBook. I like how the author integrates HTML links to resources. It's very convenient for referencing more detailed information or looking up products. This work exhibits the kind of attention to eBook production that I wish more authors would take. The core audience for this book are people who are thinking about getting into DSLR photography. It explains the key functions of digital cameras, what to get for the photography you want to do, lenses and how they function, computer recommendations and little bit on software needs. Volumes 2 and 3 are supposed to get into more details about actual photography tips and approaches, and post processing. I hope these get published very soon. While some other reviews have pointed out you can get this information quite easily off the web, this book aggregates it all in an easy to read and understand prose. It's well worth the price when you consider the actual time it would take you to find and vet those sources yourself.

    Having recently upgraded to a digital SLR, I was looking for in introduction to digital photography. This book covered all the basics well, then went deep into lenses and accessories giving me handle on the next steps to take to expand my equipment collection in a way that will give me a broad range of photographic options without breaking the bank.
  • Great stuff.
