    Good General Reference

    I bought The Joy of Digital Photography because I thought it might give me some ideas and tips and would provide a point of reference as to what an experienced,competent, and artistic photographer might teach me.

    I found the book stimulating, interesting, and useful in evaluating my own competence and experience. The book is full of great images and useful general discussion, all of which were helpful to me.

    If I had to complain about anything, I would say that too many of the photos were not discussed or analyzed by the author and so that many points that could have been made were lost.

    But, the bottom line is that the book caused me to think about my own work, broadened my horizons, and led me to many things to explore so that reading and reflecting on the book was a positive experience.

    A reviewer

    The first time I sat down to read this book, I could only sit still for a few pages before grabbing my camera and heading out to take pictures. The simple discussions of every concept relating to photography will help anyone take better pictures. I've read the book cover to cover twice and plan to do so again. Anytime someone I know buys a digital camera, this is my gift to them. The Joy of Digital Photography is simply one of the best books you could buy on the subject

    digital made easy

    Being new to digital photography, I wanted a book that not only gave me useful knowledge of photography, but how to use the modes, lighting, etc. on my digital camera. This book is an easy, but informative read. The pictures are outstanding and helpful. I now understand my camera and the basics of taking a good picture under any circumstance. This book has been a joy to read and I would highly recommend it to those learning digital photography. I now take colorful and sharp pictures, whether in sun, shade or indoors.

    Outstanding Is An Understatement

    With great verve and humor, Jeff Wignall has created a masterpiece. No more do we have to endure painfully dull and difficult guides that focus only on the technicalities of digital photography. From cover to cover, Jeff not only enlightens and educates but entertains with true-to-life anecdotes. This book should be in every photography enthusiast's library. A joy indeed.

    Readable!

    I read this book from cover to cover because I was having so much fun. 'Joy' is packed with great information about digital photography and is so enjoyable to read that you can start at page one and read it straight through as if it were a novel. The bonus for me was that I learned a lot of digital photo tips along the way. Truly a joyful experience!

    Great gift book at a great price

    Anybody in your family have a digital camera? Then check out this 300-page hardcover book filled with good looking color pictures for under $25. The pictures look great. The writing is clear, entertaining, and actually helpful. Best of all the price can't be beat.

    At last --Digital Photography Made Fun and Easy!

    It's been a long time since I've had so much fun reading a how-to book. Jeff Wignall's love for photography and his passion for explaining digital photography to we amateurs leaps off every page. The photos, which are gorgeous and intriguing, cover a wide enough range of subject matter to apply to anyone with a camera. Wignall has a special gift for bringing intimidating technical matters down to earth. His writing is crystal clear and casual, as if he were talking to us in a sidewalk cafe. Anyone who's been taking pictures the old way has no more excuse to avoid digital. In a colorful step-by-step approach with personality and humor, Wignall guides us through all the stages of mastering digital photography. He reveals juicy trade secrets of the pros, and explains basic camera theory. This one-book classroom in the art of taking great pictures is clearly destined to become a classic.
