Thanks to Digital Photography School. They have marvelously varied and nice lessons for the amateur photographer. Today, I noticed a rather old post on their site which is a compendium of the best, most important lessons to teach somebody starting photography (aged from 7 to 77 years).
- Check your Backgrounds
- Hold the Camera Straight
- How to Hold a Camera
- Get in Close
- Take Lots of Photos
- Getting the Balance Right Between Photographing People, ‘Things’ and Places
- Find a Point of Interest
- Rule of Thirds
- Review Your Children’s Images with Them
- Focal Lock
- Different Modes for Different Situations
- Exposure Settings
All these are pointing to some more articles in DPS web site. But merely checking the photo examples on the page is already interesting.
