Overview


Currently with no other book on digital SLR photography, photo enthusiasts have had to rely on books that concentrate only on aspects of the technology that are peripherally related to picture-taking. This book uniquely concentrates on creative techniques for the digital SLR photographer. Photography with Digital SLR and "SLR-like" cameras isn't exactly like conventional film SLR photography; nor is it exactly like digital photography with non-SLR cameras. DSLRs have special advantages, special features, and special problems that need to be addressed and embraced. In addition, users of these cameras tend to expect more from their photography and crave the kind of information that will let them wring every ounce of creativity out of their equipment. Anyone who has a Windows PC or Macintosh and a digital SLR camera will find advanced techniques in this book. Readers will cover various aspects of DSLRs including: why DSLRs work best for creative posing for group and individual portraits, using DSLRs to capture close-up scenes on the desktop using the digital camera's special capabilities, how to get great travel photos with a DSLR, and how to archive them when far from a computer.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Unlike other digital cameras, the digital single-lens reflex (SLR) offers interchangeable lenses, upgrades and add-ons, increased battery capacity, and no annoying shutter lag-advantages offset by their additional bulk and price. Longtime photojournalist Busch, who has authored dozens of photo books, intends this work for serious digital photographers and those needing to make quality photos for business purposes. In it, he explores the best lenses for any situation, inventive exposure techniques, and methods of infrared, time-lapse, and night photography. This is the best book available for digital SLR. For one on general digital-camera work, see the revised edition of Tom Ang's Advanced Digital Photography: Techniques & Tips for Creating Professional Quality Images.

Even if you are using a point & shoot camera and looking into purchasing a DSLR...I would highly recommend this book if you are on the fence about buying a DSLR or are planning on buying one. Even if you won one I would highly recommend it!
