This is a self-published handbook on getting the best from your D-SLR. It's not model-specific for the simple reason that camera functions are essentially the same. More importantly it provides an overview on key D-SLR features, how to set up a shooting workflow; how to sort and make initial edits, how to calibrate your system for a consistent colour workflow, how 'read' the LCD, plus composition pointers, the essentials to making a good picture, controlling depth of field, shutter speed and ISO sensitivity.
As a photography teacher I've drawn on many years of seeing beginners make the same mistakes over and over again. The examples in the latter part of this book highlight the sort of visual mishaps we frequently encounter. Each situation has a clearly-illustrated 'solution', and this has the sole purpose of putting the control back into the photographer's hands so they record what they see with much greater confidence...
I have been in the publishing business for 18 years but now spend more time teaching through the Centre for Continuing Education at Sydney University and through the Perfect Picture School of Photography (www.ppsop.com). I teach DSLR camera courses, DSLR Video, compopsition, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom, Macro, Portraiture and much more... I also lead dedicated photo tours to beautiful parts of the planet such as South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Morocco, Oman, Japan, and Bali. Currently most of my tours are organised through Academy Travel in Sydney. www.academytravel.com.au My blog: robinnicholsworkshops.blogspot.com
