Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Thanks to the revolution in digital technology, photography is enjoying unprecedented popularity. This in-depth course is loaded with valuable information and tips from a prolific writer, technology expert, and passionate digital photographer. Gulbins emphasizes the photographic workflow, from inspiration, to capture, to print and storage. Readers will find detailed coverage of camera technology, camera and computer choice, image formats, composition, and a long list of genres, from animal and landscape photography, to portrait and macro photography. The book centers on image editing (though not in Photoshop), RAW file formats, and printing, ending with information on tools for capturing images and archiving photos, a glossary, and an excellent section on literature and Internet sources. Recommended for serious photographers. For a more light-hearted yet surprisingly comprehensive volume on SLR digital photography, many public libraries will want the second edition of David D. Busch's Digital SLR Cameras & Photography for Dummies.
