With very little time and effort you can be well on your way to taking better pictures consistently. In just a few hours of your time, you can learn what Digital Photography is all about and why you might want to go beyond point-and-shoot cameras and Pray & Spray techniques. Your time behind the camera can quickly become a source of great joy and gratification. Do you find the whole topic of digital cameras a little overwhelming? Do you sometimes feel that you dont know enough to even ask the right questions? Digital Photography 101: Book 1 Mastering Digital Cameras: An Illustrated Guidebook for Absolute Beginners will painlessly provide help and insight with all these topics and more in just a few hours of your time. Digital Cameras dont have to be intimidating. The underlying principles are surprisingly simple but rarely presented in laymans terms. Like any other area of specialization, photography has its own language. Fortunately, you only need to understand a few of terms and concepts to get started. This guide to PHOTOGRAPHY BASICS builds a solid foundation of photographic knowledge with easy-to-follow discussions of everything that you need to know in order to get started with confidence. Every photographic term used in the book is clearly defined and thoroughly explained. All terms are also highlighted by using BOLD CAPS so that you can easily find them again to refresh your memory. This Photographic Guide will take the mystery out of cameras, camera equipment, and Photographic Jargon. This book contains 120 charts, illustrations and photos that take the discussion to new levels. You will not only understand the terminology and techniques discussed, but you will have a much better understanding of how your camera works and what is actually happening when you make adjustments. The charts and photos should help you to retain what you learn and put it to good use immediately. Although this book provides a fast-track approach to achieving photographic competence it does not rely on previous knowledge.
