Ten Photo Assignments

Book Description

Become a Better Digital Photographer, One Assignment at a Time

There is no better way to learn than by doing. While theories, histories, best practices, and sciences ground a thorough knowledge of any subject, at some point you have to apply that information to truly garner knowledge.

This book provides real-world assignments that guide prospective photographers to a true understanding and mastery of the craft. Each assignment includes a list of goals, detailed instructions, illustrations, and examples. Individual assignments build on one another, allowing your mastery to grow as the book continues.

Learn about the capabilities and limitations of your equipment; the proper ways to expose a scene for digital capture; dos and don'ts of cropping and scene placement; how to color manage a scene in-camera; and how to see, manipulate, and augment light to obtain the best possible native files.
