Description

Written by a photographer for photographers, Understanding Digital Photography explains not only how to do something in the world of digital photography but, more importantly, why it should be done! Straightforward, easy-to-understand explanations of critically important digital photography concepts are grounded in traditional photographic processes. This allows novices to gain an appreciation of the historical evolution of digital photography as they gain new skills while permitting experienced photographers to quickly bridge the gap between traditional and digital photographic mediums. Drawing upon insights gleaned from more than twenty (20) years of experience as a successful commercial and fine art photographer, the author places the utmost emphasis on equipping his readers with clear-cut explanations of digital photography techniques plus practical examples of how they apply to real-life situations. It is this no-nonsense approach to demystifying digital photography that makes Understanding Digital Photography a "must" for every student, hobbyist, and professional that wants to harness the power of this exciting technology and open new doors to creativity.show more
