Teach Yourself Visually - Digital Photography by Chris Bucher / Wiley Publishing, Inc. Helpful illustrations and so much more! From the title you would expect to find a simple overview of the ins & outs of digital photography. This book does not disappoint in that regard. What took me by surprise, however, was just how much useful information is packed into this book. At first glance I thought the colorful clip art meant that the book would be only for beginners, but Teach Yourself Visually - Digital Photography is packed with a wide-range of comprehensive information. Here are just a few of the topics covered: Helpful accessories & equipment Camera Controls and how they function Lighting situations, basic composition and creative effects How to organize your digital photo collection My favorite part of the book was the extensive chapters on enhancing your digital images with post processing. Chris Bucher, uses helpful step-by-step screen shots to walk readers through editing from basic changes to more difficult exercises using Photoshop Elements. This book seems to be an all-around great value for beginners and more experienced photographers alike. Whether you are a hobby photographer or shooting for stock you will find helpful tips in Teach Yourself Visually - Digital Photography.
