Photography, n. the art and science of capturing what's there and making it worth looking at.
Protip, n. an idea that will make your photography better.
The primary problem with photography is that your eyes can see things your camera can't. How often have you gazed upon a scene thinking it was incredibly stunning, taken a picture of it, and been thoroughly disappointed with your capture? This is the problem of "seeing." Solving this problem is the subject of this text.
Luckily for us, just as your eyes can see things your camera can't, your camera can see things your eyes can't. Taking advantage of this fact will help make your images even better as you work on your ability to see. By the end of this book, you'll have a firm grasp on the fundamentals of taking a great picture and transforming it from the dreaded "snapshot" into a work of art.
I'll start with the fundamentals of taking better pictures. If you already consider yourself to be technically proficient with a camera and have a good understanding of concepts such as composition and the exposure triangle, feel free to skip to Part II. In Part II, I'll dive into taking more creative pictures and my post-processing techniques for transforming an image into something so creative, it often gets compared to a painting.
In just a few minutes your e-book has enhanced my view of photography. Thank you so much.
