Summary
Digital photography is hot, and kids want to get in on the fun. This comprehensive instructional guide, created especially for youngsters, tells them exactly what they need to know to capture those birthday parties, school events, sleepovers, and family vacations. Every important question gets an easy-to-understand answer: What's a pixel? What is resolution and why does it matter? How can I make computers, scanners, and printers work with my camera? Children will get creative with software that alters and enhances images, and learn new ways to add text, adjust color and brightness, and change a background. Fifteen appealing projects, from turning snapshots into puzzles to crafting unique CD covers, photo magnets, and digital scrapbooks, make this a no-brainer for the budding photographer.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 7-10. Young people with access to a digital camera will find answers to nearly all their questions in this wide-ranging, nicely designed guide. Beginning chapters address basics, including understanding camera features, using focus and flash functions, capturing motion, and so on. Bidner then delves into picture-editing software and even how to set up a Web site (with parent's permission, of course). Final sections offer ideas for projects, such as handmade stationery and bookplates. With so much material covered, some subjects are glossed over, particularly the explanations of software. But Bidner introduces sophisticated technical material in enthusiastic language that is kid-friendly without being condescending, and older teens who aren't put off by the book's juvenile appearance (models are mostly elementary- and middle-school children) will find much that is useful. A glossary concludes the book, which promises readers will use terms like jpeg and megapixel with a confidence that will make your parents jealous. \b --Gillian Engberg Copyright 2005 Booklist"
