As digital cameras and image editing software become more technologically advanced and affordable, photography has become more popular and accessible to photographers of all ages and skill sets. While these advances have helped beginning photographers take better pictures, these same photographers often don't have the technical skills required to take great photos. "Complete Digital Photography, Fifth Edition" guides you through every aspect of digital photography, from shooting through postproduction and printing, to help you master the theory and technical skills required of a great photographer. In an easy-to-understand format, you'll uncover the fundamental photographic knowledge you need to solve common dilemmas and challenges and advance your photographs to a new level. You'll learn everything from how a camera works and how to choose the camera that's right for you, through shooting, image editing, output, and workflow. You'll also explore the basics of artistry in photography, including finding a subject, composition, lighting, and more. This fifth edition features both new material and a revised and more user-friendly organizational structure. Tutorials and exercises throughout the book will help you practice the techniques presented in each chapter.
