Mastering the Nikon D300 is the inaugural title kicking off the Nikonians Press imprint--the exciting, new joint venture between Nikonians and Rocky Nook.

With his friendly and informative manner, Darrell makes the reader feel as if a friend dropped in to share his experience and knowledge while explaining the hows and whys in simple terminology.
The learning experience for D300 beginners (and refresher information for professionals) goes beyond the camera itself, covering additional Nikon equipment, such as the use of optional Speedlights. Frequent references to the user manual provided by Nikon (with specific page references) allow the reader to easily navigate past the confusion that often comes with new equipment.

Topics include:
-Metering systems
-Auto and manual modes
-Custom setting banks
-Histograms and white balance settings
-Shooting menu banks
-Auto and custom settings
-Picture controls and playback menus
-Set up, retouch, and My menus
-Nikon Creative Lighting System
-Tips and tricks and much more

Darrell's book includes samples of D300 photographs provided by members of the Nikonians community, including:

- Alex Rosen (klrbee25)
