The long-awaited Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 has arrived, and it's attracting thousands of folks who are upgrading from point-and-shoot digital cameras for the first time. DSLRs are, of course, a whole different ball of wax. But if you own an Alpha SLR-A100, you don't want to master DSLRs in general: You want to master this one, with this portable, practical book.
Step by step, David Busch covers everything you need to know to get great images with your Alpha -- from using its controls and exposure modes onward. Busch guides you through choosing lenses, controlling exposure, working with flash, reducing vibration, getting better composition, and a whole lot more.
The heart of the book: great techniques for every type of photography you care about: architecture, events, fill flash, filter effects, fireworks, florals, infrared, landscapes, nature, nighttime, products, panoramas, sports, streetlife, sunrises, sunsets, travel, water, weather, you name it.
