This book is set up in easy to read, follow and understand sections. Each one will build on the last, as it walks you through the basics of each topic.
First you will learn about the main aspects of cameras and lenses, followed by all other essential pieces of equipment that you might need to reach your goals as a photographer.
In the next section, we will delve into understanding camera controls, starting with how to get the most out of your auto and semi-auto settings. We will turn each of those into learning tools that will lead you into the next section on manual controls. As you follow these simple steps, using complete manual controls on your camera will become second nature to you. You will understand what each one does as well as when you would want to use them. Using this method, you will suddenly be able to capture amazing shots you may have only dreamed of before.
You will be able to stop motion in its tracks as you capture such images as birds in flight with no blurring. You will know exactly how to blur out the background to highlight your subject. Maybe you want to allow motion to flow through your images in order to capture silky waterfalls or maybe you want to see every drop. The choice will be yours!
In the last section, we will go over some of the most prominent “rules of photography” that will truly make your images stand out above the crowd.
If you simply read through each session and do any suggested exercises, by the end of this book, you will know how to capture absolutely stunning images of anything you choose.
