Many of the printed manuals manuals that come with todays cameras are an abbreviated version of the full manual.
Everybody seems to look for rules that will make their photography easier and better.
While rules may make your picture making easier, I don’t think rules make your photography better or help you to be a better photographer.
Although we’re working with a camera, we’re using the camera to record light much like a writer uses a pen to record their words.
Don’t believe what I, or any of your other teachers, tell you.
I talk about the camera as doing three things and, in order to help photographers to begin to develop a thought process behind their pictures, these three things MUST be done in consciously by the photographer .
The words we choose are important and they can change your mind when it comes to your photography.
When you have a better understanding of light, you become a better photographer.
