Title: The Digital Photography Handbook: An Illustrated Step-by-step Guide
Author: Doug Harman, David Jones
Review: Written by WDC contributor Doug Harman, The Digital Photography Handbook is packed with information on getting the most out of your digital camera. Claiming to provide a ‘complete beginner’s course in digital photography’ it covers all aspects of picture taking, illustrated throughout with colour and black and white photographs. ‘Going Digital’ examines how a camera works and what equipment to use, and ‘Using your Digital Camera’ explains camera features and techniques for photographing different genres.
In the latter half of the book, ‘The Digital Darkroom’ concentrates on correcting your photos using image-editing software, and ‘Output’ examines what you can do with your photos, including printing and creating a website. Covering such a varied breadth of subjects does mean some topics aren’t particularly detailed; however, the jargon-free language helps to ensure that the book provides a taster of what digital photography is about.
With an astonishing £4.99 price point and convenient pocket-sized format, the Digital Photography Handbook is great value for money, making it a worthwhile purchase for anyone new to digital photography.
