Written by professional photographer Ben Long, it's packed with creative tips and technical advice to help you capture stunning pictures anywhere, anytime. With this book, you'll learn how to: take creative control and go beyond automatic settings; learn the basic rules of composition; capture decisive moments, including fast-moving objects; discover ways to use a flash indoors and outdoors; learn about different lenses, and the best time to use them; and, understand the options for shooting RAW, and whether it's right for you. There are plenty of photography books, but only this one teaches you how to take high-quality digital photos using the exact camera model you own. Plenty of full-color examples show you what's possible once you graduate from snapshots and focus on the pictures you really want to take.
