EXCERPTS FROM BOOK REVIEWS
"This is one of the best non-fiction titles I have ever read. It's well-written, well-organized, well-planned, accurate, and useful. The authors were thorough and thoughtful. The book delivers on the promise of its title and subtitle, 100%. Seldom do all of those come together in one work, but they come together in this one. I can gush about what a great book this is all day long, and that won't help you decide if it's for you. I could also list all the things I like about it, but that's really not necessary. I'll sum it up thusly: If you have a camera and aren't a professional photographer, you should have this book. Period." --Mind Connection
"Tom and Michele Grimm cover the gamut, even including taking pictures with a cell phone camera. Their first lines (with which I heartily concur) are: 'Digital photography is fascinating, fulfilling, and just plain fun.' They tell us that it gives us instant gratification (no more waiting for film processing), and that there are two big steps to success - 'understanding how to use your camera, including the ways to compose good pictures, and knowing how to improve the results with your computer.' They address both in their handbook with practical hands-on advice. If you're just starting on digital photography, or have been snapping pictures with a digital camera for some time without developing your techniques, there's a great deal to learn from The Basic Book of Digital Photography." --BookLoons
"This book is the best 'basic' book I've read about any subject. One of the things I liked about this book by the Grimms is that it is easy to read and full of information I didn't even know that I needed, such as white balance, light filters, and selecting the resolution for the picture. The book walks you through getting your pictures from the camera to the computer, software that you can use to edit your photos, and how to print and safely store your pictures. If you ever thought about photography as a hobby, then this book is a fantastic starting place for you. --examiner.com
"This was SUCH a great book -- I know I'm gonna have to keep it handy, as it is a good resource to brush up on your camera skills! This would be the PERFECT gift for all the techies and non techies on your list this Christmas!" --Bless Their Hearts Mom
"Now you've got that new camera, what do you do with it? Tom Grimm and Michele Grimm's book, The Basic Book of Digital Photography, is a great place to start." --Between the Lines
