Here are some excerpts:

The Basics

If you immediately flipped the page and are still reading, then you probably aren't one of those Quickstart junkies. You want to learn more before going out for a test drive.

The next logical step is to teach you some of the basics about digital photography. Usually this is where most books venture off into a bunch of complex concepts and impressive technical explanations. You feel like you just enrolled in a certification program where you could have a pop quiz any minute and the main point of the course is to demonstrate the superior knowledge of the instructor.

The good news is, I've kicked the instructor under the bus and taken over the class. Knowing the basics allows you to get consistently good shots. It's worth your time to learn them. I'm going to do my best to take the technical issues and put them into plain English and easy-to-understand analogies... and leave out stuff doesn't really matter. I'm going to tell
you everything I wish someone would have told me the day I bought my first digital camera.

Camera Settings

Remember, this is the basics section. I'm not going to explain each of these settings here but I want you to be aware of which settings you should be interested in as you learn more about photography. They are ISO (the camera sensors sensitivity to light), white balance (the camera's ability to adjust to the lighting which might be tinted blue or yellow for
example), exposure (how much light to allow into the camera affecting how light or dark the image turns out), aperture (the size of the opening of the lens which allows you to control how sharp or blurry parts of the image are at varying distances,
known as "depth of field") and shutter speed (how fast the camera opens and closes the shutter freezing movement). These are the most common settings you want to learn and I go into more detail later on starting at page 39.
