Preface

Preface

This isn’t a digital camera book. It’s a book about digital photography: how to take great pictures and make great images using imaging technology, while taking into account the special needs of digital cameras. Whether you’re a snap-shooting tyro, or an experienced photographer moving into the digital realm, you’ll find the knowledge you need here. Every word in this book was written from the viewpoint of the serious photographer.

This isn’t just a photography book, either. It’s a digital photography book. The focus is on the special capabilities and needs of computer imaging. You’ll learn how to take close-up photographs with cameras that have optical viewfinders, and techniques for producing professional-looking portraits with cameras that aren’t designed to work with multiple light sources. No fast shutter speeds? No problem! You’ll learn a professional sports photographer’s secret for stopping action with any camera. It’s time you stopped taking snapshots, and started taking photographs!
