Melbourne, Victoria, Australia (PRWEB) February 4, 2009
Thomas Palfy, author of several travel-photo books, teaches digital photography at the U3A Nunawading, Melbourne (Australia) branch. U3A is an organisation whose aim is the education of retired members of the community - those in the "third age" of life. U3A started in France in 1973 and its model is used in many countries, including Australia.
Palfy's latest book is a guide to digital photography and more. In this handbook a brief history of photography is illustrated with examples from the author's own family album. The 'secrets' of taking good photos is explained before getting into the details of camera selection, operation and maintenance. Subsequent chapters deal with the aftermath of picture taking, like organizing of image files, printing, etc. The book is rounded up with advice on the use of scanners, photo editing programs and emailing image files.
The author's original class notes were revised and expanded to create this interesting publication. It is recommended for those who are new to digital photography or want to improve their picture taking skills.
