I have been taking average pictures for most of my life with good cameras. This book teaches you how to achieve great pictures and effects with a great camera. The D90 is a rather complex camera and the book simplifies and explains it all in common language. I have read it twice and continue to refer back to the book for information on the nuances that I forgot or overlooked.

This book gives a clear understanding of the D90. The author breaks it down into simple terms that you can understand. Its a must have book to help you get better shots with your camera, and have a better understanding of apeture, exposure and shutter speed. She gives clear understanding of all the menu, and other features of the the D90. I highly recommend it.

I liked the format with clear explanations of features. The photos of the menus were very helpful. The only fault I found was that there was little explanation of why and in what situations the various features might be useful. To give the author credit, this is not a basic camera and it might be assumed that the user has some understanding of photography.
