If we were out taking photos together, and you said to me, ‘hey Simon, how do I get a great photo of this flower and keep it sharp… but I want the background out of focus?’
I wouldn’t stand there and give you an entire lecture about aperture, exposure or depth of focus (field). I’d just show you and say, ‘get up to the telephoto end of your lens, set your aperture priority mode with an f-stop of 2.8, focus on the flower and fire away.’
And you would say, ‘OK’, and you’d get your shot. But unfortunately I’m not standing beside you...
There’s an enormous number of photography books you can choose to help you, and so much information available on the internet. This is not a book about all things photographic, a full exposé on photography...
… in Photography TOP TIPS I’ll show you some of the things that I do each time I pick my camera up; all those little secrets that are not really secrets at all, but with practice become second nature and transform your photographs from something ordinary into something extraordinary. I hope this is the next best thing to enjoying our creativity together.
These are the same techniques I teach in my photography classes and I have assembled them here, all the really important things for you to look out for while you are actually taking your pictures; so you can record to your memory card exactly what you have visualised.
