Digital Photography Handbookby Doug Harman
In the last few years digital cameras and "digital darkrooms" in the form of computers and image manipulation software have revolutionized modern photography. Truly professional results are tantalizingly within reach of all--and The Digital Photography Handbook shows you how to combine photographic flair with digital expertise to achieve them.
Part one looks at the cameras, the lenses and other hardware accessories, explains the technology behind them and helps you choose exactly what you need. Part two explores the art of photography itself, from composing a shot to considerations such as depth of field, focus or exposure. It also examines a series of themes such as landscapes, weddings and holidays providing tips and ideas for how to photograph them. Part three moves into the "digital darkroom." Here, expert instruction will give you the confidence to correct common problems and get the most out of your images, while a series of masterclasses focuses on professional image manipulation techniques and artistic effects, breaking them down into step-by-step stages for you to follow. Finally, part four looks at printing your photographs--whether to paper or on to the web. For those interested in taking their photography a little further, it explores building a portfolio and offers advice on copyright and selling your pictures.
In this new, updated edition Doug Harrman includes the very latest developments in digital technology, equipping you with everything you need to become an accomplished 21st-century photographer.
