The Glossary of Digital Photography

The Glossary of Digital Photography Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the many technical, complex, and interwoven words, and new words being created daily, even veteran photographers have trouble keeping up with the lingo of digital photography. The solution comes to us in The Glossary of Digital Photography, which is the most comprehensive publication of its kind to date. With over 1500 words, abbreviations, and acronyms, the Glossary strives to help those involved in this cutting-edge industry to understand the language that makes it up. The Glossary has been extensively researched to collect the terms currently in use and to provide the most up-to-date meanings of these terms.

The Glossary of Digital Photography will appeal to advanced amateur photographers with more than an average interest in their hobby; to professional photographers with an interest in digital photography; to students of photography, design, and related fields; and to professionals in the design, prepress, printing, and publishing professions.

Book News Annotation:

In a dictionary spanning entries from "16.7 million colors" to "zip file format," the author of several other books on digital photography (most recently, Alterative Digital Photography) defines terms related to this relatively new, popular form of photography. Some terms such as "camera" even predate film- based photography; others like "chimping" (for the initial excited response to viewing images on a digital camera's LCD screen) are brand new. Aptly enough, color and b&w photos are featured. Distributed by O'Reilly Media. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
