Overview

George Schaub has taught digital photography to hundreds of people in workshops and courses across the country. All of his students have had one thing in common: They wanted to get the best images from their digital cameras. Now, in Hands-On Digital Photography, Schaub presents everything he teaches and everything he has learned in his fifteen years of teaching. Image processing software is great...but Schaub's practical, project-based approach focuses on the camera and getting the best shot possible every time, so beginning to intermediate photographers can spend more time capturing the shot and less time manipulating it. In easy-to-follow projects, the author discusses how digital photography allows greater creativity; file formats and how they affect post-exposure processing; how to choose resolution and compression ratios; exposures for the best digital images; camera menus; RAW file format; in-camera exposure adjustments; in-camera contrast adjustments; and much more. Now it's easy for photographers to get the most from their digital cameras and to make every shot a great shot!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Editorial director of Shutterbugand eDigitalPhotomagazines, Schaub focuses on knowing the camera so well that one gets the best possible photo every time. Though aimed at the beginning to intermediate student, this book is most useful for advanced photographers. The projects and exercises are not subject based but function based, with the text divided into sections titled "Understanding the Digital Image," "In-Camera Controls," and "Software Controls." Beginning photographers will be better served by Tom Ang's How To Photograph Absolutely Everything(reviewed on p. 90).
