    Unless you are already very familiar with photgraphy terms and techniques, you are buying a lot of frustration and wasting your time and money. The author many time talks as if he is talking to another professional photographer. For example the author did not explain by a simple diagram what he means by ‘angle of the subject from the sun’ or ‘exposing off the ground’ or ‘exposing off the sky’. Before start using many photography terms in the book, the author does not define or explain terms like exposure compensation, flash fill mode,etc. or at least does not explain clearly. The author wastes a lot of paragraphs on useless talk that is rather obvious or does not add to the understanding of the subject matter. This is dangerous to the poor trees that get cut. In the enire book there is not even a single diagram! Color pictures are only in the center of the book. Most photographs are small size black and white newspaper quality.

    I don’t usually write reviews, but I was prompted by the previous review. I was looking for this book because I had given my copy to my son and I wanted another. I have been an amateur photographer for more than 30 years, so I guess that the jargon was not a problem. Digital and film have much in common, but there are some serious differences, highlight loss or blowout to mention just one. I found this book provided me with the insight (within the limits of digital cameras) that I needed to make digital photographs as good or sometimes better than conventional photos

    I really enjoyed reading the Braun brother’s book, “Learn Digital Photography in a Weekend”. I appreciate the authors no nonsense and humanistic approach to teaching the basics of digital photography. The sections on nighttime shooting, image resolution and color correction were some of my favorites to read. One of the books pluses is that it’s loaded with important information and it’s easy to read. The downside of this book is the lack of color examples. For example, it’s hard to see the effects of lossy, color resolution and photo sharpening with a simple black and white image. I suggest that in thier next book to add more color images for examples. Otherwise this book is worth the money because of the information alone. I would definitely read it again.
