About the Author
David D. Busch has nearly 1.5 million books in print to date, and 2011 opened with twelve of his books ranked in the Top 100 of Amazon.com's Digital Photography Best Seller list. When Michael Carr of About.com named the top five digital photography books for beginners, the #1 and #2 choices were Busch's Course Technology book Mastering Digital Photography and his Digital Photography All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies. Busch has combined writing and photography his entire career. A former newspaper photographer, he was invited to move to Rochester, New York, to work on the Eastman Kodak Company account, writing several thousand articles for leading photography magazines such as The Rangefinder, The Professional Photographer, and Petersen's PhotoGraphic. He also operated his own commercial studio and photo lab and was a sports photographer/sports information director for a Rochester college. Four years later, he became a traveling photojournalist, visiting 48 of the 50 states and several foreign countries in a 20-year span, writing articles illustrated with his photographs. For the past 15 years Busch has concentrated on books and magazine articles (for publications like Popular Photography and Imaging), with a special emphasis on imaging topics. He has reviewed digital cameras for CNet Networks and Computer Shopper, in 1990 wrote one of the first books on scanners and in 1995 authored one of the earliest books on digital photography (Digital Photography, MIS Press, 1995.) Two of the 102 books Busch has written since 1983 earned "Best Book" honors at the Computer Press Awards.
