Unsure where to start? How about a short introduction.

If you learn nothing else from this site, learn this: A great photograph does not depend on what camera you have. It is your knowledge of the core photography concepts and techniques that will turn an ordinary photo into one that your audience will enjoy.

The goal of this website is to expose you to these concepts and techniques so you can be prepared for any situation.

The goal is to give you the knowledge to feel comfortable enough to take your camera off the auto setting. It is only when you get away from the auto setting that you start to take images that will make you proud. Make you want to share your work and possible start to sell your images if that is something you wish to do.

The goal is to make you realize that there is always more to learn or another skill to master. There are endless ways to capture the light / scene we see on a daily bases. The camera is an amazing instrument that enables us to capture things that even the human eye can't see.
