    Book details


In 2003, digital camera sales should explode following a 35 percent increase in 2002. Here, Rick Sammon covers all the steps in the digital photographic process. Sammon begins with basic advice for those new to photography. Experienced film shooters should enjoy his ample coverage of Photoshop and digital image techniques. And in a bonus section, Sammon offers advanced tips such as taking glamour shots, producing e-books, and setting up a home studio. The book asks questions such as "How do I select a digital camera? How do I store my images? What are the first things I should do when using Photoshop?" Its approach of "learning to see and see to learn" uses pairs of images, software screen shots, and the best photographs from his own vast library. The 107 lessons take the reader through each topic in friendly, concise steps.

    What an amazing book, if you only have one book on Digital Photography this should be it. It is so well written avoiding technical terms but not patronising or condecending. It is as if your are sitting in one of the author's tutorial classes. The quality of the book is superb with over 500pages of quality gloss paper and hundreds of Colour Photos to guide you through the lessons. BUY IT.

    Most of this book, pretty much everything except 'Taking' in fact, seems to deal with doing things using Adobe Photoshop, and even more annoyingly, extra plug-in filters for Photoshop. It doesn't even talk about Elements, the cutdown PS that a those of us starting out in digital photogrpahy are more likely to use.I was looking for a bit more background and theory. In most cases the lessons just direct you to a particular filter or effect in PS with little or no explanation of what is going on behind the scenes.

    This book is obviously written by someone who is very passionate about his work. 107 Lessons are not really lessons, however, but rather sections dealing with a certain issue at a time. The photography throughout the book is wonderful and inspiring. The great deal of the book is devoted to working with Photoshop and the author provides a plethora of useful information and "tricks" in this regard. As far as I see, this book has only a couple of flaws, but these flaws made me subtract one star from my final rating:1. Exposure, along with the attendant technical information, is not thoroughly or clearly discussed. It seems that someone else wrote that section of the book.2. The discussion of lenses (probably the MOST important accessory for your camera) takes only about couple of pages. Certainly not sufficient.Not book is perfect, and trully think that this one is one of the best books available on the subject. I keep it for reference and constantly use it when working on my own photoprojects. I also find it quite motivating. Mr. Simmons makes you want to drop everything that you are doing, grab your camera, and just go outside to shoot some photos. Overall, a job well done.
