Excellent guide for a beginning photographer March 21, 2011
by
This was a required text for a beginner's digital photography class. This textbook is well written and clear. It is very complete and good for a fairly early starter in digital photography. The author takes you from soup to nuts, with some very tasty and filling side dishes along the way. He explains the differences between film and digital photography and gives a lot of good advice about choosing cameras, etc. Highly recommended.
