A great photograph has the potential to transcend verbal and
written language. But how do you create these photographs?
It’s not the how that’s important, but the who and the
what. Who you are as a person has a direct impact on what you
capture as a photographer.
Whether you are an amateur or professional, architect or acupuncturist, physician or photographer, this guide provides inspiration, simple techniques, and assignments to boost your creative process and improve your digital images using natural light without additional gear.
