Read in March, 2011

I won this on goodreads - I believe it will go in my camera bag, since it is a "field guide". Really excited for a reference guide, though.

I got this in the mail today and read most of it - it's divided into two sections "The Digital Environment" and "Image Editing". Since I didn't have my camera out I scanned the editing portion, as that will be more useful the more I practice shooting.

I can't believe how much I learned just in 60 minutes, though. I've had a goal of starting to get more serious about photography - rather than just being a mom with a DSLR who took one class in college understands how to shoot in manual. I'd like to practice enough that I could actually be GOOD at it. That of course will take practice, and I think throwing this little book (literally 6x4 inches) in the camera bag would help. I'm actually interested in more landscape/macro photography than people - and this little book could help me get on my way.

I probably learned more about how a camera works in the first 20 pages than my last 5 years of workshops and online classes I've taken. The sensor, image processor, dynamic range, creating HDR images, etc. I like how explanations are given for PC and mac. Cool.

Useful little book. Thanks!
