The D5100 is an amazing bit of technology and a very capable tool for creating photographs that you will be proud to show others. The intention of this book is not to be a rehash of the owner’s manual that came with the camera, but rather to be a resource for learning how to improve your photography while speci&cally using your D5100. I am very excited and honored to help you in that process, and to that end I have put together a short Q&A to help you get a better understanding of just what you can expect from this book.
q: is every camera Feature going to Be covereD?
A: Nope, just the ones I felt you need to know about in order to start taking great photos.
Believe it or not, you already own a great resource that covers every feature of your camera:
the owner’s manual. Writing a book that just repeats this information would have been a waste of my time and your money. What I did want to write about was how to harness certain camera features to the bene&t of your photography. As you read through the book, you will also see callouts that point you to speci&c pages in your owner’s manual that are related to the topic being discussed. For example, in Chapter 6, I discuss the use of the AE-L button,
but there is more information available on this feature in the manual. I cover the function that applies to our speci&c needs, but I also give you the page numbers in the manual to explore this function even further.
q: so iF i alreaDy own the manual, why Do i neeD this Book?
A: The manual does a pretty good job of telling you how to use a feature or turn it on in the menus, but it doesn’t necessarily tell you why and when you should use it. If you really want to improve your photography, you need to know the whys and whens to put all of those great camera features to use at the right time. To that extent, the manual just isn’t going to cut it. It is, however, a great resource on the camera’s features, and it is for that reason that I treat it like a companion to this book. You already own it, so why not get something of value from it?
q: what can i expect to learn From this Book?
A: Hopefully, you will learn how to take great photographs. My goal, and the reason the book is laid out the way it is, is to guide you through the basics of photography as they relate to different situations and scenarios. By using the features of your D5100 and this book, you will learn about aperture, shutter speed, ISO, lens selection, depth of &eld, and many other photographic concepts. You will also &nd plenty of full-page photos that include captions, shooting data, and callouts so you can see how all of the photography fundamentals come together to make great images. All the while, you will be learning how your camera works and how to apply its functions and features to your photography.
