Learn From a Pro: National Geographic

In Learn from a Pro on 07.21.09 at 9:00 am

There’s no hiding that I am an amateur when it comes to photography. I’m not completely delinquent as I have had experience working on the newspaper and yearbook staff in high school, taken a beginners college photography class, and worked briefly with a wedding photographer as the go-to girl. But now that I am graduating from a simple point and shoot camera to a DSLR, I checked out a book from the library that looked interested. National Geographic: The Ultimate Field Guide to Photography will teach anyone how to take a good photograph. And even if you are a decent photographer, it has chapters on advanced techniques, taking great pictures with a camera phone, digital darkroom, and archiving. I am loving this book!
