Digital Photography Book
Search for Digital Photography Book on the Internet!
If you do an Internet search for "digital photography book" you will get at least 58,300,000 results. How helpful is that? Frankly, it is not very helpful at all because where do you start when you don't have any idea what to expect from a good quality digital photography book? Ironically, while there are many different types of publications that have been published, if you go into your local book store hoping to page through an interesting digital photography book, you aren't like to find more than a few of the most recent titles on the shelves.
This of course depends on where you live and how relevant the book store considers this kind of title to be. Reducing your search by adding in "+ Amazon" won't help that much either. If you do a search on Amazon, which is the world's biggest online retailer (that started up as a book retailer, but now sells lots of other "goodies") you will find more than 13,500 results. It really is mind boggling.
Nevertheless, if you can find a really good digital photography book there is no doubt that it will help you improve your skills.
To help you decrease numbers in your search, amazon.com suggests related searches including those "for dummies" and those that are more specifically for "slr" or single lens reflex cameras.
If you can't find anything on Amazon you feel you want to order immediately, or at your local bookshop that you can look at and possibly buy, another option is to do a search in Google Books. You may be lucky enough to find some sample pages that appeal to you, that you find useful. Then you can decide whether or not to order that specific book. Alternatively you might decide on a publication (usually an eBook) supplied online, that you can print out yourself.
Just remember that there is absolutely no point in buying a publication just because the title says it covers what interests you. If you can't see what you are buying, at very least read as many reviews on the publication you like as possible. Alternatively, read as many articles as you can and then experiment for yourself.
Ultimately, find out as much as you can about all the vital photographic techniques that will help you take good pictures, either by talking to knowledgeable people, reading articles or if you can find one, by investing in a good digital photography book.
