from the Ground UpDigital technology has revitalized the interest in one of the most fascinating creative hobbies: photography. This new book from Rocky Nook -- Digtal Photography from the Ground Up -- will help the novice photographer get started with a firm foundation in understanding the principles and techniques of modern photography. And, the more experienced photographer will be guided through the transition from analog to digital photography.
Whereas most other books on digital photography focus on image editing in Photoshop, this book deals with the photographic workflow, from capture to print and storage.
In this book the reader will learn:
* How imaging occurs in digital cameras
* What to look for when buying a new camera
* An understanding of composition
* Digital shooting techniques
* Image editing, printing, and presentation
* How to archive and organize photographic images
This is not the book that explains which button to push. Rather, it is what the title promises: an in-depth course loaded with valuable information and tips. Juergen�s goal is to share his own experience as a photographer, and to pass on the knowledge that will make photography an enjoyable and rewarding endeavor.
