Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Freeman, an experienced professional photographer and the author of several photo books, has provided an outstanding manual for the digital single-lens reflex camera. For decades, the 35mm SLR film camera has been the cornerstone of serious photographers' equipment, but it has quickly been eclipsed by the digital version. Freeman, in fact, makes a convincing case for the digital SLR's superiority over the film version, especially in low light. This is a technically comprehensive yet user-friendly book, with richly illustrated chapters on shooting landscapes, nature, people, architecture, and still lifes. Unlike David D. Busch's Mastering Digital SLR Photography, Freeman's work delves into post-production processes, such as the Photoshop patch, clone, and brush tools. Highly recommended.
