The Digital Photography Companion, says its author Derrick Story, â€œis for the average amateur who is passionate about photography and wants to take better pictures. So if you’re a seasoned pro, you’re not going to get as much from this guide as someone who is more at the enthusiast level.â€
â€œYou don’t have to have â€˜professionalâ€™ equipment to shoot professional looking images,â€ says Derrick. â€œLearning how to use the tools you have is what’s important.â€ And with its compelling photos, the author says this is his most attractive book to date.
Companion differs from his previous Digital Photography Pocket Guide, 3rd Ed. in that the new book is completely up to date regarding camera specs and the latest version of Aperture.
â€œMy goal for this project was to create a book that would appeal to the eyes, be informative without attitude, and help empower whoever embraced it to take pictures that were a cut above the general photography aptitude,â€ Derrick writes.
