When Ang first began working professionally as a photographer and picture editor, digital photography was in its infancy. Today, it has removed the expense and inconvenience from picture taking and put the creative capability of a darkroom within reach of anyone with a computer. This author of 17 titles on video and photography has just published two landmarks for this particular time in an ever-changing field. How To Photograph Absolutely Everythingis the most useful and comprehensive book on the subject available for the nonprofessional. Ang begins with the elements of digital photography, from choosing equipment to framing images. Five chapters follow on how to photograph real-life situations and events, e.g., portraits, weddings, and sports events. Artistic expression (working with reflections, color, light, and abstract forms) and practical photography (for auctions, selling a car, and business promotion) round out the volume. Ang's Advanced Digital Photographyrevises a book first issued in 2003. Technically detailed yet clearly written, it's for the serious photographer or professional and remains a rich source for mastering the manipulation of digital images. Both books are highly recommended.
