Library Journal Review

This handy, affordable little guide introduces both amateur and professional photographers to the full range of creative possibilities of digital photography. Ang here begins with an overview of equipment and software, as well as setting up an ideal workroom. He next turns to the making of digital photographs, including zooms, electronic flash, composition, and color balances. Separate chapters are devoted to scanning, including resolution, file formats, and color management; image manipulation, including cropping, burning and dodging, and color balance; and, finally, troubleshooting the myriad problems of digital imaging. This final chapter also includes a very useful glossary and lists of manufacturers, web resources, and software sources. Thorough, well organized, clearly written, and appropriately illustrated with many helpful photographs, this is one of the very best introductions to this new exciting field. Highly recommended, especially for general collections for amateur photographers that don't already have Ang's Digital Photographer's Handbook, just out last year from DK. (c) Copyright 2010.
