The Photographer's DSLR Pocketbook: The Essential Guide to Getting the Most from your Camera

The Photographer's DSLR Pocketbook: The Essential Guide to Getting the Most from your Camera

by Michael Freeman (Author)


Even standard digital SLR cameras have manuals running to hundreds of pages; usually, they concentrate on the technical features of the camera, but neglect the crucial fact that great photographers do not just simply know how to navigate menus: they understand how the operation of their camera will help them to take better pictures. The Photographers DSLR Pocketbook , small enough to be taken on the most arduous shoot, gives the reader the benefit of Michael Freemans decades of professional photography and years of experience with digital technology. Opening with the anatomy of a digital SLR, the book then covers settings, exposure, capture and image workflow, clarifying the operations of your camera and allowing you to operate it with speed, confidence and accuracy. Michaels own photography and diagrams illuminate his points perfectly, making this an attractive and informative read.

Author Bio
Michael Freeman, professional photographer and best-selling author, was born in England in 1945, took a Masters in Geography at Brasenose College, Oxford University, and then worked in advertising in London for six years. In 1971 he made the life-changing decision to travel up the Amazon with two secondhand cameras, and when Time-Life used many of the pictures he came back with, he embarked on a full-time photographic career. Since then, working for clients that include all the world's major magazines, most notably the Smithsonian Magazine (for which he has shot more than 40 stories over 30 years), Freeman's reputation as one of the world's leading reportage photographershas been consolidated. Of his many books, which have sold over 4 million copies worldwide, more than 60 titles are on the practice of photography. For this photographic educational work he was awarded the Prix Louis Philippe Clerc by the French Ministry of Culture. Freeman's books on photography have been translated into 27 languages.
