    A real must for digital photography!

    A well written and illustrated book on photography in general as well as digital photography. This book clearly explains the hows and whys of the features of your camera. If you wonder why the "Auto" setting only works part of the time and how to make the camera take the great pictures that you really want, this is the book for you. Don't let the title fool you. Anyone that wants to take better photos will find this book a helpful resource you will want to keep handy.

    for more than dummies

    Easy to read and understand, wonderful images, examples, and practicum, and room to grow are just a few of the things that came to mind as I looked at this book. I see simple things that can immediately help my photographic creativity, and lots of stuff to experiment with and grow into as I find myself at a plateau in some phase of my photography. I would (and have already) recommend this book to persons at any stage of a photo hobby or even a more serious person looking to possibly create a career. I can't wait to try to capture images similar to those displayed in the book. Thanks for the lessons.
