Simon Joinson's new book is aimed anyone new to digital photography
I regard it as a bit of a special occasion when a new Simon Joinson book is published and yesterday was such an occasion. Titled 'Get the Most From Your Digital Camera'
, the book is aimed at anyone who has made the jump to digital but isn't satisfied that they are getting the most from it.
Simon, a familiar fellow UK-based journalist, has very impressive credentials: former editor of Total Digital Photography magazine and founding editor of What Digital Camera magazine, he now works with Phil Askey on the dpreview mega-site and Amazon lists at least nine other books he's either authored, co-authored or edited.
I recently reviewed another book Simon co-authored, Secrets of the Digital Darkroom
and that earned a very high rating. I'd be very surprised if Get the Most From Your Digital Camera
was anything but of the same quality.
The book has 160 pages and Amazon's synopis is: "Appealing to the fast-growing number of people who are replacing their point-and-shoot cameras with digitals, Simon Joinson explains the basics - how digital cameras work and basic information about image files, how to take better pictures and how to manipulate them using any of the basic free manipulation software packages available (as well as Photoshop). There is also detailed information on how best to print digital images, arrange them into electronic albums, send them by email, post them on a website, as well as a host of other uses not possible before the advent of digital cameras. A really versatile book that will help everyone and anyone have fun with digital photography and use it to its full potential."
It looks like this book could be an excellent gift for someone you know who is just starting out with their first digital camera. We'll be contacting the publisher for a copy of the book to review as soon as possible.
