CAPTURE (Digital Photograpy Essentials) – Review

From the Publisher:

In film-based photographic education, strong programs and writings have placed great emphasis on making a negative. But to get to the negative, good exposure is required. The beginning of the photographic process significantly affects the final outcome of an image—a fact that has not changed with digital photography.
Capture: Digital Photography Essentials concentrates on photography from a digital-capture workflow point of view. The text addresses both the opportunities and limitations of digital photography, and how to work with those opportunities and around the limitations. Authors Glenn Rand, Chris Broughton, and Amanda Quintenz-Fiedler discuss the digital tools that allow photographers to capture, create, and maintain high-quality digital photographs. Readers will learn to maximize the potential of their images through an understanding of the core principles and more advanced aspects of the digital photographic process.
Various projects that are based on tested teaching concepts for digital photography can be found throughout the text, as well as numerous images that are both inspirational and instructional.

Topics include:
• Digital Cameras
• Sensors and Lenses
• Basic Exposure
• Digital Exposure
• Digital Capture Workflow
• Image Files
• Parametric Editing
• Digital Zone System
• Hybrid Imaging
• Capture Technology

Another publication by rockynook, that I really looked forward to receiving.
I think that maybe I need to be reviewing books geared toward
the complete and total idiot, because these productions have me totally stumped.  
My husband seemed to think that this was a straight forward basic,
and easy to understand “manual”.  Since he has very little photography
experience, I must admit that the fault lies totally with me.
I would certainly recommend this to budding photoghraphers,
who are a little more technically savvy than me.
