There’s an expert discussion of white balance and lighting, from daylight to artificial setups to flash photography, and entire chapters devoted to filters, close-up photography, and action shots. Finally, get practical information on digital file types, downloading, retouching, image processing, converting RAW files, and storing and retrieving images. This book has it all!
