David D. Busch was a roving photojournalist for more than 20 years, who illustrated his books, magazine articles, and newspaper reports with award-winning images. He?s operated his own commercial studio, suffocated in formal dress while shooting weddings-for-hire, and shot sports for a daily newspaper and an upstate New York college. His photos have been published in magazines as diverse as Scientific American and Petersen?s PhotoGraphic, and his articles have appeared in Popular Photography & Imaging, The Rangefinder, The Professional Photographer, and hundreds of other publications. He currently reviews digital cameras for CNET.com and Computer Shopper. When About.com recently named its top five books on Beginning Digital Photography, occupying the #1 and #2 slots were Busch?s Digital Photography All-In-One Desk Reference For Dummies and Mastering Digital Photography. His 78 other books published since 1983 include best-sellers The Nikon D70 Digital Field Guide, Digital SLR Cameras and Photography For Dummies, The Official Hewlett-Packard Scanner Handbook, and Digital Photography For Dummies Quick Reference. Busch earned top category honors in the Computer Press Awards the first two years they were given (for Sorry About The Explosion and Secrets of MacWrite, MacPaint and MacDraw), and later served as Master of Ceremonies for the awards.
