Photos are windows into our souls, into our lives and memories. Each photo brings back countless emotions and is a snapshot of a moment in time. Looking at a wedding photo brings back fond memories of smiling, dancing, being surrounded by cheering friends, and perhaps crying as you stared into the eyes of the love of your life. Looking at a picture of an old pet brings back nostalgia for your childhood, remembrance of bright, sunny days when you went to the park to play catch or take a walk, and of grooming soft fur. Yet oftentimes these pictures turn out blurry or simply wrong, but who really cares as long as at least one picture is decent? But what if you could do more than just avoid blurriness? What if you could really, truly capture an important, memorable moment in your life with a quality that brings tears to your eyes years later rather than the question: “Where was this even taken?” Maybe these questions aren’t things you’ve thought about, or things you even knew you needed to know to take good pictures. But these are all very much keys to succeeding at digital photography. In this book, I will lead you through every step to success you need in learning how to take digital photos like a professional. This includes: • Choosing the right camera • Photography techniques • Specific types of photography, like food, weddings, and landscapes • Photo editing • And much more! So go on, and give it a shot. Soon you will find that the perks of knowing how to properly take a photo go far beyond merely saving money at a wedding by taking the photos yourself. After all, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and our memories caught in an eternal moment of time are priceless.
