One of the first things that can frustrate potential Digital Single Lens Reflex owners are all the ‘settings’ that a DSLR can offer. If you are used to happily snapping away with a compact camera or taking amazing images on your phone then one look at all the options and buttons available on even an entry level DSLR can be mind boggling.
In this book we will be addressing the issues that you might face along the way, from buying your first camera and looking at how to understand exposure to learning how to compose and frame your images, how to take portraits and professional looking studio images and then how to process your images and how you can even make money from your best shots.
Each chapter will be dedicated to showing you exactly how to do what you want to do, no matter your level of learning. There are also projects for you to complete that will help to advance your understanding of photography and help you create great images.
There will be more advanced discussions in the future which go into each subject into much more depth, this is for absolute beginners only.
