Better Photography:

If you’re just beginning to explore photography or if you’re new to the digital side of

things—or both—you may be intimidated by all the new lingo that you encounter. Thumb

through the color insert in this book, for example, and you’ll probably see at least a few

terms that are completely foreign to you.

Unfortunately, both the photography and computer industries are infatuated with

technical jargon. Bring the two together, and you get twice the technospeak. As a result,

concepts that are actually quite simple seem incredibly complex. Rest assured that you

don’t need photography or computer experience to successfully use the techniques featured

in this book. I’ll give you all the background information you need to understand each

concept.

Nor do you need expensive, studio-level equipment. Some techniques that I discuss do

involve features that aren’t found on low-cost, entry-level digital cameras—things like

manual exposure control, for example. Don’t fret if your camera doesn’t offer all the

bells and whistles; I’ll show you ways to achieve similar results with even a basic, fully

automatic camera.

As for the techniques themselves, I’ve concentrated on tricks that make a big impact

without being complicated. In fact, most people are surprised to find out just how easily

they can improve their pictures by incorporating these techniques into their shooting

routine. I think you will be, too.
