Summary

One very difficult thing to do with a digital camera is taking professional quality photos. This is because getting a clear image can be difficult, and adjusting the light levels may need to be done by hand. This is why it is an exceptionally good idea to use a digital photography guide. A digital photography guide can show a camera owner how to adjust light levels manually, how to reset the focus features on a camera, and how to add filters. It can even show a person how to do things like changing the aspect ratio of a camera by hand.

Terrible reading speed

Would you try another book written by Larry Hall or narrated by Joshua Bennington?

I was unable to listen to this book for the simple reason of the way it is read. This is my personal view, but I would urger you to listen to the sample before purchasing this book.

Would you ever listen to anything by Larry Hall again?

No

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Joshua Bennington?

Someone with a more normal reading speed who sounds more professional.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I could not listen to it because of the voice and the way it was read. I do feel I wasted my money, but then I should have listened to a sample first.

Digital Photography Guide

If you could sum up Digital Photography Guide in three words, what would they be?

basic digital-camera help

Have you listened to any of Joshua Bennington’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to any other audio books by Joshua Bennington but he did a good job with this auto book.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

I did not know about many of the settings on my digital camera until I listened to this book. It is a good guide for the beginner.

Any additional comments?

If you are a beginner with a digital camera you would do well to purchase this audio book. It was cheap for what I got out of it.

Horrible

Horrible, the narrator sounded like he was drunk. And it was read painfully slow. The content was all right but hard to follow.

All you need to know about digital photography

All most all audio editions are better than the printed form. I like to listen and work at the same time and audiobook give me that freedom.

The filter guide was interesting because I was not sure which filter did what.

What about Joshua Bennington’s performance did you like?

I did listen to this book at one setting and will probably listen to it again!

content was good, narration horrible

this is one of the worst reviews I have ever given.

the performance had a wierd pacing to his voice, it sounded like a bad knock off of Cpt. Kirk. i found it extremely distracting. the content to the book was fine. the medical disclaimer at the begining was unnecessary and rather absurd.

I gained some info around photography but I don't feel it was worth the pain of listening to this.

I would recommend this in print not in audio format.

Couldn't listen - Narrator was terrible,,,

I couldn't get too far into the audiobook. The narrator's voice was simply horrible!!! Maybe I'll have to find the printed version of the book.

Don't Bother With This Audiobook

Would you try another book from Larry Hall and/or Joshua Bennington?

Definitely not!

What was most disappointing about Larry Hall’s story?

He examines random and obvious points in great detail. Much time is spent on irrelevant observations about digital vs. film cameras, special filters, etc. Little if any time is spent on either fundamental or advanced instruction.

What didn’t you like about Joshua Bennington’s performance?

He sounds like a combination of a drunk tough guy and a computer generated voice. I can't believe that anyone at Audible actually listened to this performance and still released this work.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Extreme disappointment and a strong desire for a refund. There are very, very few books on photography or digital photography, and this took advantage of the reader. Promising title, devoid of content with a tremendously irritating narrator.
