You may have already found that reading books and magazines on photography is rather like opening oysters - you will need to open and look through many if you are hoping find a take-home pearl that you can use. In this book, you will discover that the author has indeed opened many oysters and eaten them all, leaving only the pearls for you to keep. You will see from the rather long Table of Contents that each feature of your compact camera or app-enhanced smartphone camera has a separate hyperlink to navigate to each heading where you will find useful information.Under each heading, the information is clearly explained and is easily understood, even by a novice or would-be photographer. More experienced amateur photographers will learn many of the practical details of using their camera that they may never have really understood. The clarity of the text will leave readers with very few unanswered questions about how to get the best out of their camera.
