This book is about the preparation that goes into planning trips, the digital darkroom, file maintenance and to a certain extent the composition of the photo.
The photos in the book are ok but not great. They are normal day to day shots that most people take but I think thats part of the concept of the book was to use photos that most people could take so that they don't think to themselves "I cant take that shot". As an example there are shots of kids playing on a beach.
Where this book hits the mark is in it coverage photo manipulation, the hardware involved and how it works, cameras, computers, memory cards and card readers as well as software applications used in image manipulation. In detail it covers how a camera works. How lens's work. The book also describes how to compensate for environmental and lighting conditions and what can be done upfront while taking the picture to minimize any negative effect of light or environmental condition.
One of the helpful things about this book is that he uses the same photo in various stages of manipulation so that you can see what the effect is going to look like in all the stages of manipulation that he describes.
Also covered in the book are different conceptual ideas of photography like photo journalism, architectural photography, macro photography and landscape photography to name a few.
Overall this is a good book for the person just getting into digital photograph but I'm not sure that it will be of much use to the intermediate to advanced photographer thats already familiar with digital image manipulation.
This is not a book intended to be read front to back. It is a reference book best digested in chunks. It starts off with some technical info on digital, as well as film, cameras, followed by info on PCs, monitors, scanners, printers and software. Not terribly exciting, but I read a few paragraphs here and there and did learn a few things. From there the book is organized in "topic format" allowing you to quickly find on your present interest, be it photographing buildings, clouds, animals, sports, children, etc. Then it progresses into scanning, color management, cropping, correcting and enhancing images, filters, and other creative processes prior to finalinzing your image, and also speaks to certain software.
Overall the book is intelligently organized. Interspersed throughout are "Quick Fix" charts for a multitude of issues, enabling a quick scan across a page or two to find your issue, which is a real benefit. At the end of the book, there is also an extensive glossary, a couple of pages of web resources, and a list of manufacturer and software websites, as well as some further reading suggestions. Lastly, there is an extensive index, a real plus for any reference book.
The book does have a few weak points, such as needless text on the internet and viruses. And the inclusion of information on hardware is risky due to frequent technology changes. But I do admire the author's idea to include complementary material.
The book is loaded with beautiful photos on nearly every page, which will serve to inspire your creativity. The pages are top quality stock, coffee-table book quality, and the hardcover is a full color replica of the dustjacket. I plan to keep this out in full view on a table, not buried in a bookcase.
If you are a competent digital photographer looking to refine your technique and expand creatively beyond merely saving/printing photos with little editing, this book is for you. The intent is to make a good phographer a great photographer.
