Welcome to Digital Photography is the easy, fun way to learn how to use a digital camera for novices. The book is designed especially for adult learners, seniors, and non-native speakers. It features large print and illustrations and Labyrinth's easy-to-use, straightforward design so students absorb concepts and develop skills rapidly-building their confidence and ensuring their success. As in all Labyrinth texts, learning is reinforced with plenty of illustrations and practical, hands-on projects and exercises. Our unique instructional design makes learning faster and easier for students at all skill levels. The compelling case studies demonstrate the relevance of subject matter in practical situations. Concept reviews and Skill Builder exercises at the end of lessons reinforce learning.
Students will successfully learn to use all aspects— technical and creative—of a digital camera, including all the buttons, dials, switches and menus found on digital cameras. Concepts are presented with 'easy to understand' explanations and examples of each concept. The text demystifies digital photography jargon like 'white balance', 'depth of field', 'exposure compensation', and 'fill flash'. Students with 'instructional manual phobia' will discover how easy it is to use the manual, providing an ongoing independence in the use of any digital camera. Finally, students will be able to have fun with their camera, sharing photos on the web, and being able to print great photographs.
