Why buy a digital camera as remarkable as the Nikon D50 digital SLR if you’re barely going to scratch the surface of what it can do? Get David Busch’s Nikon D50 Digital Field Guide, and use your D50 for all it’s worth.
Small enough to toss in your car or backpack, this book’s packed with step-by-step help (supported by 250 full-color photos). You’ll find excellent primers on everything from composition and lighting to exposures. Busch even thoroughly demystifies lenses. (That’s invaluable for folks moving up from “point-and-shoot.”)
The heart of this book consists of easy-to-use techniques for whatever you’re shooting today: action/sports shots, business photos, candids, kids, landscapes, events, individual or group portraits, online auction images, panoramas, seascapes, still lifes, sunrises/sunsets, even nighttime fireworks. Spend a few minutes with the Field Guide before you start shooting: You’ll be amazed at the results. Bill Camarda, from the December 2005 Read Only
