Every time you take a picture with your digital SLR camera, there is one special element that you have NO control over...or DO you?
The special element that I'm referring to is LIGHT.
Without it, photography would not be very interesting. Light is an essential ingredient in every photo you take.
However, some types of light make every photo you take spectacular while others just make you cringe.
So what's the difference? How can you tell the "good" light from the "bad"? And when you're stuck with bad light, what — if anything — can you do to improve it?
For starters, you have to understand that your camera doesn't see the world the same way you do.
Let me explain.
Every time you take a photo — whether with natural or artificial light — you're working with a range of contrast.
Here's the problem:
Every digital camera (and every film camera for that matter) can only capture a limited range of contrast. What does this mean for you?
It means that sometimes a picture that looks very promising to your eyes won't turn out all that well when captured by your camera.
I've written five digital SLR lessons that will help you improve your digital images in all kinds of light, both natural and artificial.
These digital SLR lessons aren't written with one particular camera model in mind - they apply to ALL digital cameras that let you use manual controls and are compatible with flash accessories.
NOTE: These lessons are not for beginners.
You'll need at least a working understanding of shutter speed, aperture, ISO and exposure for these lessons to really make sense.
If you are just starting out with your digital SLR camera, then see my Beginner Digital SLR Lessons instead.
If you do have a firm grasp on your camera's controls, then here's what you'll learn from these digital SLR lessons:
I realize that some people with have plenty of time each day to sit down and work through a lesson. Others with less free time will have to work through the lessons as they can.
Since this is the case, there are several important points that must be made about your access to the lessons:
Even if it's years from now and you still want to brush up on your technique, you'll be able to access the lessons so long as you have a computer with an Internet connection.
I have written the lessons as clearly as possible in the hopes that everything that you read is completely intuitive.
However, I'm also well aware that there may be times when you need additional clarification, or help with a specific photographic situation that I don't cover.
In these cases, you are welcome to contact me and I will personally assist you until your question is answered.
Now you can learn how to bend light to your will for less than the price of a new memory card.
The five lessons cost just $14.95 USD (about £10 or $20.57 AUD).
