With the many technical, complex, and interwoven words, and new words being created daily, even veteran photographers have trouble keeping up with the lingo of digital photography. The solution comes to us in The Glossary of Digital Photography, which is the most comprehensive publication of its kind to date. With over 1500 words, abbreviations, and acronyms, the Glossary strives to help those involved in this cutting-edge industry to understand the language that makes it up. The Glossary has been extensively researched to collect the terms currently in use and to provide the most up-to-date meanings of these terms.

The Glossary of Digital Photography will appeal to advanced amateur photographers with more than an average interest in their hobby; to professional photographers with an interest in digital photography; to students of photography, design, and related fields; and to professionals in the design, prepress, printing, and publishing professions.

Format:Paperback
I am putting together a basic photography class for people at work, to help support a photography contest we are going to host in order to boost our internal stock photography library. Putting together the presentation is easy enough, and defining terms in said presentation is easy thanks to the power of Google and Wikipedia. But how do I deal with things that come up while I am giving the presentation? I am no expert, and I don't want to derail the presentation to go online and look something up. Enter The Glossary of Digital Photography by John G. Blair. The book is 311 pages, and is full of definitions and illustrations of terms ranging from "16.7 million colors" to "bokeh", "layer masks", "ISO" and ending with "zipped" (as in zip file). There are no tutorials, this book is purely meant to define terms and concepts. That said, some concepts, such as "descreening" do include before and after images to show what the results of the concept could be. I have found this book to be an excellent reference as I put my presentation together, and will keep it handy as I continue to learn more about this hobby of mine.
