About this book

This title features expert advice from a professional UK photographer, useful hints & tips plus clear diagrams & charts. This new series of "The Expanded Guides" focuses on photographic techniques to give you a comprehensive grounding in the subject and takes you a step further to enable you to get much more from your photography. This is an invaluable guide to taking better photographs using today's sophisticated digital SLR and compact digital cameras.

Aimed at both the novice and more experienced amateur photographer, jargon-free text explains the theory behind digital photography, how light metering affects exposure and light's relationship to colour, colour temperature and white balance, focal points and the expression of mood. Aperture, depth of field and shutter speed are also thoroughly covered, along with chapters on ISO speeds, dynamic range, use of filters and making in-camera adjustments. Post processing techniques round off this invaluable guide to getting the best results from your photography.
