The ForeWord review discusses these innovations:

“How to Create Stunning Digital Photography is well written and remarkably well organized. A book on photography also demands excellent images, and Northrup goes way beyond the minimum standard in this regard. But he does not stop there. He also includes numerous opportunities for further interactive training in photography. The volume is filled with references to Internet sites where photographers can obtain editing software, receive additional instruction, and even join a private Facebook group page where he or she can get help and criticism of photos. In addition, there are QR codes throughout the text as well as referrals to web sites, where the reader can watch video materials that supplement and expand the instructional material presented in the book. Above all, this is a commitment from the author to stay involved. He even offers his own email and Facebook contact information.”
