Photography Halps!

When I bought my baby, my fancy-pants DSLR, I renewed my love of all things photography. As one who is self-taught from back in the day (with film!) (actual film) (you know, the kind that needs developing) (the expense was intense) (oy), I can stand a refresher and what better way to do that than with an easy to understand book?

Photography is now more popular than ever thanks to the rapid development of digital cameras. Read This If You Want to Take Great Photographs is for this new wave of DSLR dabblers and users of compact system, and bridge cameras.

My daughter is a photography student so when she's home I get great pictures (she takes them) when she's away , not so much! I need some pointers that's for sure! I too remember film, there was nothing quite like that packet of photos and how you just couldn't wait to flick through and see what you 'd got. I feel sorry for the kids nowadays, they will never know that !

Film...ugh! I feel the opposite: so thankful for digital. Although, there is something special about film quality.

I took a class online when I got my first digital and could use an update. Lost a lot of my photos when I got a new computer. Makes me ill. I have tried every way I know to find them. That is the kind of book I am looking for.

The fear of everyone is losing their stored photos. So sorry that happened.
