The new 168 page, 80,000 word, PDF book Digital Camera, Lens, and Photoshop CC is now available at a modest price. There are special benefits for teachers, government, and business. This book covers many aspects of photography including exposure, luminance, focusing, Photoshop CC, Camera Raw, composition, hyperfocal formula and the circle of confusion, lenses and lens coatings, to name a few. The book emphasizes image composition that emphasizes an image's subject of interest while preserving tonal values. Both JPEG and RAW are covered. Every button and dial on your camera is explained. White Balance and focus points are covered in depth.
The camera is a tool and helping you select the best tool for the photographic work or play you have in mind is one purpose of this short book. I will also discuss composition, exposure, black & white photography, and other information useful to the mind behind the camera. Lastly, this book is not a textbook. Read this book as if it were an informal discussion. Relax and enjoy the technological revolution in photography. It is an ongoing process with surprises and innovations emerging continually. In fact, no contrivance of humanity links physics, applied technology, and art, as completely as the digital camera.

In the book you will learn how to properly photograph and apply post-production adjustments to a subject of interest such as this and obtain similar results. Highlights and shadows are retained and depth of field helps to isolate the subject of interest from its surroundings.
Photography can be fun, profitable, creative, and technically superior
at the same time. Contact me at: email@example.com
