Summary
With this appealing, irreverent companion to The Kids' Guide to Digital Photography, children 10 years and up can go wild with the new technology. It explains everything a kid needs to know about digital photography, from using the camera to coordinating it with the computer, printer, and scanner to manipulating the images. They can dive right into 50 cool, inventive activities and turn their friends into aliens, make a Warhol-esque pop art masterpiece, and create a "trapped-in-the-computer" screen saver!--From publisher description

Review
  • Gr 7 Up –Gaines explains light and shadow composition, how to avoid camera shake, color combinations, etc., and goes over basic functions that are common to all digital cameras. Black-and-white photos are included. This accessible guide is easier to understand than the typical manual that comes with a camera. Readers of all skill levels will learn from it and have fun doing so.–Erin Dennington, Chantilly Regional Library, Fairfax County, VA --Erin Dennington (Reviewed August 1, 2006) (School Library Journal, vol 52, issue 8, p136)
  • Clearly aimed at a young audience, this volume revels in "the crazy shots [Gaines] took this summer in mirrors" and the use of photo-editing software to change colors or "switch your friends' heads around." This accessible manual promises instant gratification and delivers. Fortunately, behind the glitz is solid training in digital photography. Gaines has more than ten years' experience as a writer and teacher of publishing and multimedia. A distinctive, fun book, revised and updated since its 2007 hardcover release. --Daniel Lombardo (Reviewed July 1, 2010) (Library Journal, vol 135, issue 12, p82)
