Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
It's this simple: Photopedia brings together all the information you need to take outstanding digital photos, no matter what camera (or level of experience) you have.

Michael Miller answers all the questions other folks assume you already know the answers to. (What's the best way to hold a point-and-shoot when you're using an LCD viewfinder? When should you turn off the flash?) But he also shares pro-quality insights into everything from composition to focus to lighting. There's a full chapter on portraiture (which just might save you a trip to the professional studio next holiday season). There's another on candids, and one on travel/vacation photography (everything from packing properly to deleting unwanted strangers from your shots).

It's all presented in the simplest possible English, with loads of full-color examples. (We've seen plenty of great digital photography books by now: Miller's stands out by being a really easy and pleasurable read.) Bill Camarda, from the February 2008 Read Only
