An easy-to-follow, full-color guide to capturing and editing professional-quality digital photos
About the Book
How to Do Everything: Digital Photography is designed to appeal to anyone with a new digital camera and/or looking to build digital photography skills. Rather than being camera brand or model specific, the book focuses on the fun of taking excellent pictures with any digital camera—from a low-resolution cell phone or smartphone camera to a stand-alone point-and-shoot camera to a higher-end digital SLR camera.
Digital photography tips and techniques are accompanied by full-color photos that showcase before and after examples. Without relying on highly technical details, the author provides an overview of image editing-programs as well as best practices for cataloging and sharing images online and in print. Key features of the latest digital cameras are also covered.
