Great photography starts with sound composition. Know your subject, the exact focal point, and how to position it within the frame to accentuate the element you viewer sees first. 

Learn and practice the “Rule of Thirds,” a photography principle that places the primary focal point of any composition at the intersection of vertical and horizontal lines dividing the frame into equal thirds. The primary element should be positioned either along one of the lines or at their intersection. Most modern cameras have a thirds grid that can be turned on in the viewfinder to aid composition.

Tack sharp photos are the mark of a skilled photographer. 

Modern cameras are so advanced that solid focus is all but guaranteed in auto modes. Nonetheless, study the focal controls in all modes for maximum sharpness. When natural conditions like low light, moving subjects, and multiple focal points try to confuse the camera’s auto-focus, you’ll need to understand how to compensate.

  • Like focus, much can be left to the camera in auto mode, and even seemingly unredeemable exposure can often be corrected during editing. But the better the original image, the better the final product
  • A modern DSLR or mirrorless camera will have multiple exposure settings intended to maximize whatever effect you are going for under any condition. Read the camera’s manual to familiarize yourself with how and why exposure is controlled in each of those modes. 
  • The “creative” controls are there for a reason, and once you become familiar with them, your chances of making every shot count go up exponentially.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
