The Nikon Coolpix 950 digital camera is one of the best. If you own one of these cameras and want to get the most from it, here's the book for you. Complete, clear explanations show you how to use this versatile camera's many controls to get much better and more interesting photographs. To get the most from this, or any camera, you need to understand both concepts and procedures; the "whys" and "hows" of photography.

Concepts of photography are the underlying principles that apply regardless of the camera you are using. They include such things as how sharpness and exposure affect your images and the way they are perceived by viewers. Understanding concepts answers the "why" kinds of questions you might have about photography.

Procedures are those things specific to one kind of camera, and explain step-by-step how you set your camera's controls to capture an image just the way you want to. Understanding procedures gives you the answers to the "how" kinds of questions you might have. For example, among the many things you'll see are how to throw the background out of focus, how to keep everything in a landscape sharp, how to avoid or creatively use blur; how to photograph sunrises, sunsets; and how to take pictures at night with city lights, the moon, or fireworks.

This book is organized around the concepts of digital photography because that's how photographers think. You think about scenes and subjects, highlights and shadows, softness and sharpness, color and tone. The procedures you use with the Nikon Coolpix 950 camera are integrated throughout the concepts. They appear in those places where they apply and are described step-by-step. This integrated approach lets you first understand the concepts of photography and then see step by step how to use the Nikon Coolpix 950 in all kinds of photographic situations.

From the Publisher:

A Short Course in Nikon Coolpix 950 Photography is printed in one color using modern printing-on-demand technology so it can be produced quickly and then kept up-to-date. Because the books are written in PageMaker and published on a fully digital system, they can be available for sale a day or two after completion. A traditional publisher might take up to six months for this process and by the time they got a book into the bookstores, it would be covering the previous camera model, not the current one.

From the Author:

The latest digital cameras, such as the Nikon Coolpix 950 give you tremendous creative control over your images. As the publisher of the leading digital photography education site on the web, I have the equivalent of a digital photography courtside seat. By watching the pages people seek out, and by answering the many e-mail messages I get, it's clear that almost everyone wants to know more about how to use their cameras features to get better pictures. Even if you're an experienced photographer, digital cameras introduce new ways of doing things and new features never before available. This book, drawing on the much more comprehensive information on the ShortCourses Web site, pulls together unbiased, straightforward answers to the questions you might have about your camera.
