(Mom's note: We bought "Digital Photography 1 2 3: Taking and Printing Great Pictures" by Rob Sheppard. We are using it to learn about digital photography. The book has six chapters, so Jacob will blog as he reads. The first chapter is about how to choose a digital camera and the advantages of digital. I asked him to write about a few things he learned.)
