Digital Photography for Dummies Book Review

by Enche Tjin on October 9, 2009

digitalphotographyfordummiesThis book has almost all technical aspects of digital photography explained in plain language. It is almost like a bible. In the end of the book (if you read it cover to cover) I am sure you will familiar with most of digital photography jargon such as image resolution, ISO, JPEG, RAW, TIFF, AF, Aperture, Shutter Speed and so on.

This book is very well structured. It is aimed for people who is completely beginner and looking for a camera to buy. The book highlights pro and cons of each type of camera (compact, DSLR) very well.

Then, it expands more about how to adjust camera settings appropriately for the condition with examples. It also discuss about editing and printing. The book use Photoshop Elements photo editing software.

For me, the book is too technical. Sample pictures are technically good, but not inspiring. It is not a book to teach you how to take awesome picture, but it is good book to start especially if you don’t have a clue at all about technical aspect of digital photography.
