Everyone loves to look at great photos, but not everyone knows how to take them. Digital cameras make it easy to experiment with photography, but even in the automatic mode you can still take a lousy shot unless you know some of the basic tricks of the trade. And the latest computer editing software? It can’t help you achieve the spectacular post-production effects you’re looking for unless you know how to use it.
