Teach Yourself Photography

Compared with camera phones and compact cameras, modern DSLRs can seem terribly over-complicated to the novice photographer. The truth is, they have to be over-complicated to satisfy the needs of a diverse range of users, despite the fact that most photographers will only use a small percentage of the features on a regular basis. What the beginner photographer really needs, then, is a no-nonsense guide to the most important features on DSLRs written by experts that reveals in plain English exactly what they need to know and nothing more. This is that book.

Teach yourself Photography explains all the photography concepts beginners need, such as how to balance exposures, how to get sharp shots, and how to maximise image quality. Once you’ve mastered these basics, you can then move on to our more advanced skills section at the end of the book featuring practical how-to guides for shooting a range of core subjects. Take your photography to the next level and start learning today.

Desert Island DSLR

I try to shoot atmospheres and the feelings that I have about a place, a moment, an occasion or a person. I try to ignore the physical stuff, as much as you can in photography, and concentrate on conveying the sense of being there. In street stuff it’s trying to capture the atmosphere of a place, even if it’s just a street. I look for the dramatic, beautiful, exciting and inspiring features of those places. Generally that’s around light and colour.

… and finally, what is your Desert Island DSLR?
The Nikon D850 is one of those cameras that really does do everything. It’s got enormous resolution, so many features such as the multi-exposure overlay, and incredible dynamic range.
