Learn to compose the perfect photo
Poor composition can't be edited away. With these rules and techniques, you can put together superb photos every time. Learn to apply them in a wide variety of situations, and even how and when to break the rules for that unforgettable image.
Take control of exposure
Photography is the act of capturing light reflected from a scene onto a light-sensitive sensor. Exposure is controlling that light. Learn to do it with shutter speed, aperture, metering modes, ISO, exposure modes, flash, and an essential awareness of the light.
See the light and harness its power
Here, you'll learn to be fully aware of the light and see its possibilities. Then you'll learn to manage and manipulate it with camera settings as well as auxiliary light sources. Finally, you'll see how to apply what you've learned in common photo-taking situations.
