Beginners will want to learn the basics of digital photography with books like Tom Ang's How To Photograph Absolutely Everything. But to take advantage of the enormous artistic capabilities of the medium-i.e., to learn how to bend all the rules-this Kodak book is ideal. What was once done with difficulty-manipulating light, color, contrast motion, focus, and composition-can now be done with relative ease at the scene, inside the camera, and on the computer screen. Meehan, author of 25 books on photographic techniques, offers a brilliant, inspiring guide for amateurs and professionals on creating these effects through, e.g., infrared photography, filters, different lenses, and imaging software.
