Photography for Beginners
[ back ]

This guide is intended for the complete beginner in photography who has only used auto mode on the camera, and maybe hasn't even mastered that yet.  People with more experience may gain something by skimming through the pages.  If you are an expert you will find little of use, but you are welcome to feedback any ideas for improvement.  There are 6 topics in all, which are now all complete.

There are many tutorials on the web (you can find them with Google) and my aim is to supplement these by explaining why things are done in certain ways, rather than just state rules.  While on rules, there are several of these in photography, they are stated as rules and should be treated as such by the novice.  However, for the more experienced they are only guidelines to good practice.  As you gain experience you will learn when you can break the rules, basically when it improves the picture.
