Sure, most digital cameras offer you point-and-shoot ease. When you see something you like, just press the button to capture the image. The trouble is that digital cameras are even less sensitive to light than film cameras, so if you just point and shoot to capture an image, you may end up with a blurry, dim, uninteresting mess. If your desire is to capture the best images and not just any image, familiarize yourself with some basic photographic techniques and how to implement them on your digital camera. Even if you're pretty handy with a film camera, you've probably already noticed that there are some differences between using a film camera and a digital camera. In this chapter, you'll learn how to take a good picture or movie using your digital camera, and to deal with common obstacles such as a subject that's moving fast, located in the far distance, or hiding behind a fence or a pane of glass.
