By Matthew Bamberg / May 16, 2006

LAB not a good airline all flights seem to be delayed by up to a day.

Here waiting at the Santa Cruz, Bolivia airport I get time to announce another great review for Digital Art Photography for Dummies.

Check it out!

Here is the other from Library Journal.

Library Journal
Journalist/photo artist Bamberg provides a thorough overview not only of digital photography but also of photography in general. In Part 1, he offers solid, practical advice on defining one’s audience and personal approach to photography and discusses the process of making photographs, various compositional elements (e.g., color, light and shadow, perspective), and the transition to digital photography. Part 2 contains wide-ranging tips about photographing outdoors and indoors, photographing people and animals, and taking color, black-and-white, and night shots. Part 3 deals with the use of PhotoShop; Part 4 is about managing digital files, printing photographs, and matting and framing one’s work. In Part 5, and in a bonus section titled “On the Web,” Bamberg imparts additional tips that address everything from photographing on a cloudy day to enhancing one’s photographs with text. The book includes a useful index for locating specific information and is illustrated with more than 300 full-color photographs. Bamberg has written a remarkably clear and comprehensive overview of digital photography; recommended for all libraries, especially for public libraries where there is interest in amateur photography.-Raymond Bial, First Light Photography, Urbana, IL Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
