Overview

Written by a photographer for photographers, Understanding Digital Photography explains not only how to do something in the world of digital photography but, more importantly, why it should be done! Straightforward, easy-to-understand explanations of critically important digital photography concepts are grounded in traditional photographic processes. This allows novices to gain an appreciation of the historical evolution of digital photography as they gain new skills while permitting experienced photographers to quickly bridge the gap between traditional and digital photographic mediums. Drawing upon insights gleaned from more than twenty (20) years of experience as a successful commercial and fine art photographer, the author places the utmost emphasis on equipping his readers with clear-cut explanations of digital photography techniques plus practical examples of how they apply to real-life situations. It is this no-nonsense approach to demystifying digital photography that makes Understanding Digital Photography a "must" for every student, hobbyist, and professional that wants to harness the power of this exciting technology and open new doors to creativity.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Rather than taking a purely aesthetic or photo-science approach to digital photography, a community college instructor of photography who is president of the Photo Imaging Education Association explains this new technology to photographers (of all levels and computer platforms) from a fellow photographer's perspective. Includes color images, coverage of intellectual property rights, chapter review questions, and a glossary. The CD-ROM contains trial version software, an image gallery, and a list of Web links.

    Great book for learning about digital photography

    This book explains and illustrates topics related to digital photography very well. I would recommend it for photographers and college students. It has a ton of illustrations and walks you through a number of different digital photo projects so it is easy to see how to apply the information in the text.
