What people say:

"Chris Gatcum pares down information to only the simple, easy-to-understand basics, which is a definite challenge with a discipline as technical and complex as photography. This second edition provides an update on the 2013 original, reflecting the latest technological developments and trends. VERDICT Though perfect for novices, this manual will also be helpful to readers with prior knowledge of analog photography wishing to translate their skills to the digital realm." — Library Journal
