The prolific author of many first-rate amateur guides to photography, Freeman addresses nearly the full spectrum of digital photography in this excellent book. Writing in a conversational style, he systematically arranges the text in four sections: hardware, software (including tools and filters), techniques, and creative imagery. In each section, he thoroughly prepares the reader to plunge into the world of digital photography. As with Freeman's other books, the strengths of this guide are the clear, easily understood text and the comprehensive manner in which he addresses this broad subject. A very helpful introduction to this exciting field for both amateur and professional photographers. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
