About this book

The Ultimate Field Guide to Photography is the penultimate source for people seeking real how-to advice from the editors and photographers of National Geographic. Each chapter is carefully designed to lead the amateur photographer to better pictures. In the first chapter, you can learn how to use your point-and-shoot camera like a professional camera, including tips from photographers who have published photographs from their own point-and-shoot cameras. Chapter two prepares any photographer, carefully spelling you the basics of fine photography whether you are using a digital SLR or a film camera. Chapter three teaches more advanced techniques for the amateur photographer.

An important part of the book is dedicated to the other half of photography that now exists in the digital world: the home darkroom. Chapter five gives any reader the top twelve color moves you can do with any image editing software. Chapters six and eight provide real advice from a photographer about making better prints or scanning better pictures. There are chapters to help you archive your work and to help you create great gifts with your photography. Finally, there is an innovative chapter: how to use your cameraphone like a pro. In the back of the book you will find resource information for magazines, websites, schools, seminars, workshops, social networking sites and more.
