Beyond Point-and-Shoot: Learning to Use a Digital SLR or Interchangeable-Lens Camera

Buy
There are two types of new photographers: those satisfied with their low-cost point-and-shoot cameras, and those more enthusiastic photographers who recognize the limitations of low-cost equipment and want to improve their pictures. No longer satisfied with simple snapshots, the enthusiast moves up to a more complex digital camera-one with interchangeable lenses and manual controls-to satisfy their artistic urge.

Assuming little to no knowledge of photographic terms, techniques, or technology, Beyond Point-And-Shoot is intended to help smooth the transition from photographic newbie to "real" photographer who is experienced, in-control, and passionate about their craft. Author Darrell Young explores various types of interchangeable-lens cameras, focusing on those with larger imaging sensors, such as digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras.

Learn how to get the most out of your camera's automatic and semi-automatic exposure modes, as well as how to move beyond those modes and take full, manual control of your camera. Watch your photography improve as you discover how to apply important photographic principles, such as depth of field, white balance, and metering. With this new found knowledge you'll move beyond point-and-shoot and begin taking truly great photographs.

Other topics include:
  • Camera types and categories 
  • Choosing a camera system: DSLR vs. ILC 
  • Lens types, focal length, angle of view, and filters 
  • Aperture, shutter speed, and ISO sensitivity 
  • Controlling exposure, depth of field, and subject motion 
  • Using scene, auto, semi-auto, and manual exposure modes 
  • Understanding image formats: JPEG, TIFF, and RAW 
  • Using the powerful histogram for better pictures 
  • White balance, color space, and RGB bit-depth
  • And much more!

Algorithms & Architectures (Neural Network Systems Techniques and Applications)
Algorithms & Architectures (Neural Network Systems Techniques and Applications)
Inspired by the structure of the human brain, artificial neural networks have been widely applied to fields such as pattern recognition, optimization, coding, control, etc., because of their ability to solve cumbersome or intractable problems by learning directly from data. An artificial neural network usually consists of a large number of simple...

Object-Oriented Metrics in Practice: Using Software Metrics to Characterize, Evaluate, and Improve the Design of Object-Oriented Systems
This book is not about metrics per se. It is about the way metrics can be used in practice to aid us in characterizing software systems, to evaluate their design and when we detect design problems to provide the appropriate refactorings.

The goal of this book is to help you characterize, evaluate and improve the design of the large
