5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide for the Beginning Photographer April 28, 2004
By jefkat
This book is a great resource for someone looking to learn more about digital photography. It is especially helpful if you have a camera that is more than just a "point and shoot" and can change your settings manually. The chapters are very well organized by topic and are filled with professional tips for getting the most out of your camera. Everything is explained in language that an inexperienced photographer can understand, and the text is accompanied by many full-color illustrations. While many other books that purport to be overviews of digital photography devote a lot of pages to "post-processing" images with software (like Adobe Photoshop), this book focuses almost entirely on the art of composing and taking good pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quit looking. This is THE book for digital photography January 5, 2005
I had spent many hours in the book stores reading and looking over digital photography "How to" books. When I happened on David Huss's book it did not take me very long to realize that this was the book I had been looking for. Easily read. Honest advice. Many "Digital Photography" books devote large sections to photo editing programs. Well how about getting a handle on how to take satisfactory digital pictures first. Only the last two chapters out of a total of 20 chapters are devoted to photo editing. More than enough for the average "point and shoot" person. If you find the manual which was provided with your digital camera daunting and confusing with a very long and steep learning curve, get this book. You will be doing yourself a big favor and you will be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, I have a clue .. .and then some! June 15, 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After reading the manual for my new Panasonic FZ7, I knew I was destined to stay in "simple" mode unless I gave myself a crash course on the basics of digital photography. Note: this was my first digital camera purchase, so the only thing I knew was how to spell f-stop! I spent a Saturday morning in Border's, going thru a host of books, most of which made my head spin. But this one was different, so I raced back to my PC to place the order.


Once settled down in the comfort of my living room, I lost all track of time. Reading this book is like having a shoot-the-breeze conversation with a super-knowledgeable friend. I placed my camera on a tray next to me, opened my manual to one of the last pages to see the full list of "specifications," and by the end of the day, I actually KNEW what the assorted features meant. I now actually comprehend

--- how to manipulate AWB (average white balance),

-- EV (exposure compensation), choose aperture-priority (f-top settings)

-- ... or shutter-priority (speed of picture taking),

-- ISO (keep it at 100, with occasional moves to 200),

-- how to get to and mentally digest the histogram

and every other feature of this high-end camera. Most importantly, I now understand the why! The killa? I'm actually taking darn good pics now with the MANUAL feature!!


Color pictures appear on just about every page, with the associated text pinpointing which feature caused the result. Many are good vs bad pics, along with thorough explanations related to each. You won't find the cryptic details directly under every picture itself (i.e., ISO, f-stop and speed-- that style is used in "The Birdwatcher's Guide to Digital Photography," which only **NOW** makes sense to me)); that info is GENTLY provided in such a fashion that you grasp it, FULLY, prior to moving on to the next chapter. That would be sufficient, but the author also provides countless "Pro Tips," providing guidance for trickier lighting/exposure situations and the like.


Bottom-line: this budding birdwatcher finds this book to be a sho-nuff keeper! I've even purchased a tripod, thanks to the tips presented in this text re what to look for re that purchase. I now know to toss the occasional over-exposed pic which can't be saved via computer editing, but to keep the underexposed guys. And, when I point my camera at the birdfeeders in my backyard (through the patio door glass) and see a funky histogram reading, I now know precisely what trick to employ to get the focus needed. I've gone from deleting most pics to being able to keep the vast majority, thanks exclusively to this book. Simply stated, this book delivers, in a stlye destined to be retained. I highly recommend it, as it's proven priceless to me.
