Digital technology has revitalized the interest in one of the most fascinating creative hobbies: photography. This "ground up" guide to digital photography will help the novice photographer get started with a firm foundation in understanding the principals and techniques of modern photography. It will also guide the more experienced photographer through the transition from analog to digital photography.
Whereas most other books on digital photography focus on image editing in Photoshop, this book deals with the photographic workflow from capture to print and storage.
In this book the reader will learn:
How imaging occurs in digital cameras
What to look for when buying a new camera
An understanding of composition
Digital shooting techniques
Image editing, printing, and presentation
How to archive and organize photographic images
This is not a book that explains which button to push, but it is what the title promises: an in-depth course loaded with valuable information and tips. Juergen's goal is to share his own experience as a photographer, and to pass on the knowledge that will make photography an enjoyable and rewarding endeavor.
