Don't be fooled by the title. Digital Photography for Teens doesn't make a half-hearted attempt at teaching the fundamentals of digital photography. It doesn't stop at the basics and it doesn't assume that as a teen, you aren't capable of tackling advanced topics. Instead, it focuses on the things that teens want to get out of digital photography. Photography is a technical field, and this book covers numerous aspects of shooting great photographs. Each chapter builds upon skills developed in the previous chapters, following the natural process of digital photography: setting up the shot, taking the picture, transferring it to your computer, editing it, and prepping it for the screen or print. If you're ready to progress beyond snapping simple pictures, then your journey starts here!
Teens today are incredibly tech-savvy and usually own the latest cool gadgets--including digital cameras. Full of step-by-step illustrations covering basic digital camera techniques, Digital Photography for Teens will transform you from a point-and-shoot beginner to a digital photographer who produces really cool photos. This full-color book not only offers insight into understanding your digital camera and composing a high-quality photograph, but also tips for downloading your images to your computer, sharing them online, and creating a photo book. There are even tips for creating cool special effects or using your iPod to create photo slideshows with music.
