Our book review of Kodak Guide to Digital Photography in Paperback by Rob Sheppard and published by Lark
Title: Kodak Guide to Digital Photography
Author: Rob Sheppard
Dimensions: 368 Pages, 22.9 x 15.2 x 2.5 cm
If youre just starting out in photography, theres a good chance that youll be in the market for a comprehensive guide from the basics onward, much like the Kodak Guide to Digital Photography.
The book manages to shoehorn a great deal of information on nearly every aspect of digital photography from a capture perspective, and even musters a short section on the digital darkroom for good measure. However, the scale of subject matter on display is one of the few redeeming factors of the book.
The tone of the writing assumes the reader has not only no understanding of photography, but is also suffering from psychological barriers to taking photographs, devoting the best part of three pages to positive mental reinforcement! Kodak Guide to Digital Photography has its uses, but is by no means a must purchase.
