The Barnes & Noble Review
Digital SLRs combine film-free digital convenience with SLR flexibility. Pros love ’em. And, with recent price drops, plenty of other folks are buying DSLRs, too. If you’re among them, Kevin Ames has written the perfect book for you.

Ames begins by thoroughly demystifying the technology, both the “digital” and “SLR” parts. You’ll learn how these cameras work, then get comfortable with controlling exposures, using light meters, working with lenses, dealing with stray dust. Since your DSLR might be heavier than you expected, there’s a full chapter on holding it, and choosing the right tripod.

Ames thoroughly covers image formats (JPEG v. RAW); archiving, and proofing. Next, he turns to editing photos with Photoshop CS2, and managing them with Adobe Bridge. From color correction to layer masks, you’ll find easy, step-by-step techniques, along with all the full-color examples you could ever ask for. Bill Camarda, from the March 2006 Read Only
