Chapter 1. Capture Your Life Visually

Chapter 1. Capture Your Life Visually

There are two keys to capturing great photos with a digital camera: using the correct settings and composition (that is, framing the subject in the viewfinder or LCD display before clicking the shutter). In this project, I'll show you how to use the various settings on typical digital cameras, share some tricks for handling difficult situations, and offer some tips on creative composition. Then it's time for a mini “photo safari,” as you practice shooting while capturing images to use throughout the rest of this book. You'll also see how to avoid some of the most common photo problems, such as red eye (that undesirable red reflection in someone's eyes), underexposed subjects, and shadows behind group photos.
