  2. Greetings–

    Having never read #6, I’m curious about the sections that were eliminated in #7.
    I feel like I’ve missed something. What was deleted?

    Thank you,

    Mike Haley

  8. Like the 6th edition in Kindle. Any chance of the 7th edition being on Kindle?

  10. I’m coming back to serious photography after a lapse of almost 30 years; and, of course, loving it. I can’t believe how comprehensive and readable your Seventh Edition is; something for every photographer – beginner to professional. Together with Barbara Brundage’s book: “Photoshop Elements 11: The Missing Manual” I have enough valuable reading to keep me going for weeks and weeks.

    You may like to know that I found a minor typo on page 101 under “A Little Color Theory”. At the bottom of the first paragraph it reads “Maxell” rather than “Maxwell”.

    I’ve also tried to go to your CDP7 page but I’m getting “404 Error: Page Not Found” ;-) .

    Best wishes, Neil from Sydney, Australia

  12. I have tried the suggestion at the end of the introduction to find the companion files and the link – – and the page doesn’t load. Can you direct me to these files?

  14. Russ: That’s very strange. You should get a message that it’s redirecting. See if you can get directly to the page it’s redirecting to:

  18. What a great book! I just finished it and must say it’s better than anything I have read about photography in years. The depth and breadth of this book is amazing. Thanks Ben.

  32. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just
    sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

  34. Admiring the dedication you put into your blog and in depth information you provide.
    It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material.

    Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding
    your RSS feeds to my Google account.
