New to digital, new to photography? Confused by digital terms or the basic operations of your new digital SLR? Don't know what metering is, exposure compensation or one end of the aperture range from the other? Well, here's the book for you.

Digital Photography Essentials is an intense, introduction to digital technology, the main photographic concepts and picture control. It is designed for anyone who is new to digital from film or new to digital at all. It explains what the hardware is, how it works and then what the main photographic operations are and how you can use them. The book is illustrated with photographs showing these principles in action. This is a short and specific book which is 10,000 words long and also has a 2000 word additional glossary of technical terms, explaining what they mean. It is an introduction, a primer for the subject of digital photography. I will be publishing specific titles for numerous genres in the coming months. Here's the contents list:
