"The Glossary of Digital Photography"--New from Rocky Nook: Learn the Lingo of Digital Photography

November 14, 2007

Santa Barbara, CA--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 (Rocky Nook, $39.95 USD) 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 to better understand the language in this cutting-edge industry.

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 is sure to become an essential reference 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.

John Blair began writing and photographing in elementary school, publishing and selling his own newspaper at age 10. He has been a professional photographer for over 35 years, with a specialty of photographing women. Blair's award-winning work has led to his being twice named Photographer of the Year in five Northern California counties. He has received a number of awards and honors from the Professional Photographers of California.
