    Tom and Michele Grimm were way ahead of the pack when they wrote

This beautifully-illustrated handbook is filled with information that every modern photographer--amateur or professional--needs to know, about the ins and outs and ups and downs of shooting and processing digital images. It's all here, from how to choose the right digital camera to editing and improving your images to how to organize and store your output. I've used it more times than I can count, and every other professional photographer I know has used it. Anything you want to know about digital photography, you'll find it here.

    Reviews from Brizmus Blogs Books

    What a cool book! I was so excited to receive this book for review because, as hard as I try, I'm really just a terrible photographer. I'm hoping that, with all of the fantastic tips I've read in this book, all that's about to change. I think this review is best done with tabs!
    - It was very well-organized, meaning that it was incredibly easy to find anything specific one might be looking for.
    - It has lots of helpful illustrations that complement the ideas being written about. It's just a pity more of them couldn't have been in color.
    - It's got tips and ideas for everyone, from the immediate beginner (seriously, even for those that may not even know how to turn on a camera) to the more advanced photographer just looking for a new way of thinking about something.
    - I think it's a fantastic gift idea for those who love taking pictures or even for someone starting off with a digital camera.
    - It's even great for someone thinking about purchasing a digital camera, as it starts off with some great buying strategies.
    - Literally every single thing I could think to look up I found in this all-inclusive book.
    - At the end of the book, there was a glossary of digital photography terms with clear, concise definitions of next to every possible word one might have trouble with.
    - This book serves as a great reference guide. I know I for one will be happy to have it around.
    - My two biggest complaints were the lack of color photos (which I understood, as I know they can get VERY expensive) and that it sometimes felt a little bit TOO elementary.
    So there you have it. I, for one, thought this book was fantab! My night time photographs have already improved thanks to one small tip from this book.

    A GREAT GUIDE TO OUTSTANDING DIGITAL PICTURES

    What are the best ways to shoot, enhance, and share your digital pictures? The answers are found in a brand-new handbook, THE BASIC BOOK OF DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY, which is filled with 400 illustrative photos and lively text. It follows the format of the authors' best-selling classic, The Basic Book of Photography, now in its fifth edition, which has guided earlier generations of film photographers for more than 35 years.
    Whether using a simple point-and-shoot camera or an advanced SLR (single lens reflex) model, the new book takes you through the steps to improve, display, print, and preserve your digital images. Michele & Tom Grimm answer all your questions about the mechanics of digital cameras - including shooting modes, exposure settings, and flash use - so you can become more creative and have pride in all your pictures.
    The authors also explain everything from megapixels to memory cards, image sensors, white balance, ISO, shutter delay, file formats, scene modes, burst rate, face detection, optical zoom, live view, image stabilization and much more. All the terms that are unique to digital photography are defined in an extensive glossary.
    You'll learn how to print your own photos, put together a snazzy slideshow, show off your pictures on the Internet, shoot successfully with a cell phone camera, and back-up favorite images for posterity.
    In addition to guidelines for creative composition, the Grimms give special shooting techniques for making panoramic pictures, photographing fireworks, capturing infrared images, getting great close-up shots, and taking your digital camera underwater.
    Whether you are new to digital photography or have been shooting for several years, you'll discover THE BASIC BOOK OF DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY is the most comprehensive and readable reference for all your photographic pursuits.
