Présentation de l'éditeur

There are two types of new photographers: those satisfied with their low-cost point-and-shoot cameras, and those more enthusiastic photographers who recognize the limitations of low-cost equipment and want to improve their pictures. No longer satisfied with simple snapshots, the enthusiast moves up to a more complex digital camera-one with interchangeable lenses and manual controls-to satisfy their artistic urge.

Assuming little to no knowledge of photographic terms, techniques, or technology, Beyond Point-And-Shoot is intended to help smooth the transition from photographic newbie to "real" photographer who is experienced, in-control, and passionate about their craft. Author Darrell Young explores various types of interchangeable-lens cameras, focusing on those with larger imaging sensors, such as digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras.

Learn how to get the most out of your camera's automatic and semi-automatic exposure modes, as well as how to move beyond those modes and take full, manual control of your camera. Watch your photography improve as you discover how to apply important photographic principles, such as depth of field, white balance, and metering. With this newfound knowledge you'll move beyond point-and-shoot and begin taking truly great photographs.

Other topics include:

  • Camera types
  • Lenses
  • Aperture, shutter speed, and ISO
  • Metering and shooting controls
  • Lens focal lengths and angles of view
  • The histogram
  • Color spaces
  • Sensors
  • Filters
  • Image file formats
  • Managing digital noise
  • And much more!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For the Beginner and Those Who Think They Know Everything! 21 mai 2012
Par Jeff Ornstein - Publié sur
I have been a photographer for over fifty years and I have taught photography for about fifteen years; take it from me that this is a must read.

Darrell Young writes in a format that is easy to understand and has the ability to take extremely complex concepts and technical issues down to a level that is easy to comprehend and makes it even easier to put them to practical use.

The book is seperated into three areas. The first is equipment, cameras, lenses; and there uses and differences. This should be a first read for any level of photographer. The second area deals with exposure, probably the most important area to get great pictures. The third areas deals with all the other controls on a camera (any camera).

This book will really enhance your knowledge of digital camers and their peripherals. Even though I am a committed, dedicated Canon user, I am looking forward to reading Mr. Young's books on the Nikon camera line.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Enhance your knowledge of photography 18 août 2012

Beyond Point-and-Shoot by Darrell Young is a book that any camera owner who wants to improve their approach to photography should read. Mr. Young has drawn upon his experience as a professional photographer to explain the advantages of a Digital SLR or other interchangeable-lens camera over a simpler point-and-shoot model.
A major advantage of the more advanced type camera is the control available to the user in capturing an image. The book progresses through a virtual menu of camera features. With each feature, the function is explained in terms that a novice can appreciate and understand. As an enhancement to learning, the author includes numerous example photographs that illustrate the current feature. The reader can use these techniques to enhance their own creativity. An excellent point that Mr. Young raises is the cost of shooting digital: it's essentially free so experimenting is the best way to learn.
The print version of the book is printed on a heavy grade paper that enhances the illustrations and gives the impression of an actual photograph.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The right level and content for me 29 décembre 2012

Although, I have a digital SLR Canon Rebel T1i, I'm essentially a "point and shoot" person. For Christmas, my husband bought me a new macro lens and this book. In the days before the New year, I read through this book while practicing with my new lens. I was really surprised how well this book kept my attention and increased my confidence in shooting. Learning the basics of how to interpret the histogram was huge for me. I think this book is great for a anyone who is ready to wade just a bit deeper than "point and shoot" and really piqued my interest to learn more.

My photography "background": I got a film SLR camera about 11 years ago and a digital SLR Canon Rebel T1i about 5 years ago. I used the Sports, Portrait or Landscape modes when needed but that is about it. I'm not a particularly "artsy" person, but I love capturing memories with a camera. I'm a person/event picture taker. I first got into carrying a camera around to get better pictures of my infant kids (I'm so glad I did). Then I got a nice 70-200 telephoto lens as they began playing more and more sports. I have and love making photobooks (which make GREAT coach gifts BTW). As my oldest son gets ready to go into high-school, I would like to be able to contribute pictures to the school yearbook if I can.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unlocking a code. 22 mai 2012
Par C. Robin - Publié sur
After reading the first chapter I have learned more than any other book I've read on the subject.
Darrel Young explains hard to understand concepts with ease. I had never really understood Digital cameras till I read his book and now it's so clear in my mind I can explain it to others. He doesn't assume that you know anything about cameras, digital or otherwise but he doesn't talk down to his readers.
Reading this book was like unlocking a code. I now feel confident that I can find the right camera for me and use it without any problem.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful way to learn 24 octobre 2013
Par sweet simplicity - Publié sur
What I like best about this book is the abundance of photographic examples to illustrate each concept. For example, to understand depth of field as influenced by aperture, study the photos along with the text and you'll get the idea. To understand the effects of various lenses, there are striking photographs that show what to expect. There are also assignments to help you learn by using your camera. Every term is defined so you don't feel lost in a sea of abbreviations and jargon. And the text is well written so you can relax with it--perfect for re-reading when you need to absorb a little more. I highly recommend this book for your transition from point-and-shoot to a DSLR or interchangeable lens camera.
