The Beginner's Guide to Digital Photography

The Beginner's Guide to Digital Photography

by TimDaly (Author)


This basic, introductory book is aimed at the newcomer to digital photography who wants to know how to select the best option from the wide range of digital cameras currently on the market and how to use a home computer (PC or Mac) and one of the bundled software packages supplied by computer manufactures to improve or enhance holiday snapshots, children's portraits and other subjects that commonly find their way into the family photograph album. It assumes absolutely no prior knowledge of either digital photography or computers and is ideal for the casual, amateur photographer who wants to take advantage of the new, digital technology to achieve simple special effects such as cut outs, mixing, merging and creating photographic collages or simply to improve the quality of a under- or over-exposed picture. Unlike other books on the subject, The Beginner's Guide to Digital Photography: * Uses common snapshot subjects to illustrate image manipulation techniques * Demonstrates the use of bundled software products rather than expensive, specialist packages such as Photoshop * Is equally useful to PC and MacIntosh users * Assumes no prior knowledge of either photography or computers
