By Haje Jan Kamps - Published on Ilex Photo (2012)
One of the most popular cameras on the market is called the “Digital Rebel,” yet many photographers use it and its brethren to follow tired old rules .
This book shows you how to move beyond the dogma and shoot more creatively.
If you’re just starting out with a camera, or are starting to think about switching away from Auto mode, then this is the perfect book for you. Not only will you find within all the classical rules of photography — useful basic knowledge that can sharpen anyone’s eye for finding great photographs — but you’ll simultaneously be shown how you can push the boundaries that many teachers set, filling your memory card with exciting, different pictures that push the limits.
After all, unless you understand the confines of the box, you can’t consciously decide to think outside of it, can you?
