I 'm looking for suggestions on a good, no great book to read. My goal is to get more familiar with the lingo of digital cameras and how it pertains to my shooting. I think I'm pretty good at composition of shots. It's all the technical jargon that I get lost in. My brain just isn't good at absorbing that kind of info and utilizing it well.¬* ¬*Thanks and I'm looking forward to your suggestions...

Thank you Terry, I haven't had a chance to really search through that site yet, but it really looks like it will help me out.¬* ¬*I also came across this site with free classes (info) also, it's a bit advanced for my use, but maybe of use to more technical shooters. So here's the web address for anyone interested-¬* http://ir.webphotoschool.com¬* ¬*¬* ¬*¬* ¬*¬* ¬*¬* ¬*I was really hoping to get some suggestions for a book in print that I could use. So if anyone has any great suggestions, I'm still shopping.[img]/forums/images/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

Hi,

There is a book that I located, a little while back (in the Dummy Book Series) titled "The Digital Photography - All In One Book". I thought that it had a lot of helpful information in it (though more on the basic side), which was written in a very understandable manner. I know that there are better, floating around out there, but this one has provided some very good information to me.

NLAlston, Thanks, but when I searched for that title in Amazon, nothing was found. Do you happen to have the exact title?
