This eBook also includes clickable links to 50 or so animations, movies and other resources that illustrate the core concepts of digital photography such as exposure compensation, lens focal lengths, histograms, and much, much more. (To use these animations you do need an Internet connection.)

Just some of the things you'll learn in this book are how to take pictures in fully automatic point and shoot mode and how your camera captures digital images; how to play back and manage your images; how to use buttons, dials, and menus; control image size and quality; shoot continuously; use all of the camera's exposure modes and exposure controls to get photos that show the scene exactly as it is, or as you want to interpret it; use histograms for the best possible exposures; see how to control sharpness in your photographs; and how to use focus, depth-of-field, sharpness, softness, and blur creatively. Learn all about light and color and how to take advantage of them. Understand how they change throughout the day and seasons, how they're affected by the weather, and how light's direction and quality affects highlights and shadows. See how to set white balance to capture colors the way you see them. Learn how to use your zoom lens creatively when photographing scenery, interiors, people, and very small subjects. See how to creatively use the built in, and optional external flash, indoors and out and in good light and bad, and how to use studio lighting for product shots and portraits. Explore little known but essential flash techniques such as fill and slow sync flash. Finally, see how to capture panoramas, use continuous photography, control the tonal range, capture movies; customize the camera to better suit your shooting style; and much, much more.

Lighting for Portraits
What is a account? From the very first pictured pictures on wet plates by nineteenth - century photography pioneers to the latest images recorded as digital files on the computer, people have always been the most sought-after subject for photography. For amateurs, the most common reason for taking out their cameras is to record for posterity, both the individuals who are important to them, and the special moments of their biography. In the world of professional photography, portraits represent a significant proportion of commissioned work. But what do we mean by a “portrait?” One English-language dictionary defines it as a “replica of an individual, specially of the face.” But while that definition is certainly one with which many would agree, it doesn’t really do justice to the multitude of ways in which people can be portrayed in a artwork.

www.chrisford.com | Places | Tutorials | Pinterest | Chirping | Instagram When shooting a wide open landscape, one of the biggest challenges is how to effectively portray the image in a small frame. It's bleeding hard to capture the what your eyes are seeing and what your mind is feeling at the time. Most people instinctively pull out a wide side lens, but this isn't always the best method to capture that moment. I find creatively using a telephoto lens when capturing a landscape works better in sundry instances. I've written a short post in my blog on the topic above.
