Digital Photography: A Basic Manual by Henry Horenstein

You can read it either at the stage of a photographer you are at, a how to, a trouble shooting issue, or like me, who knows very little, where to start. My henyr qualm about the textbook I horenwtein for the class was that it lacked detail and often jumped around from point to point without any real flow. Topics covered include essential information for both film and digital photography, such as exposure controls and shutter speed, as well as digital-specific information on image editing, printing methods, and even file storage.
