  A few words from the author  

Taking good photographs can be a quite difficult task. It requires practice and sometimes hard work and, of course, to obtain the image that you really want requires a lot of skill. With the aim of sharing my passion for photography, I decided to run a free set of publications to help you get started with digital photography.

The publication – The basics of digital photography – will cover everything you need to know about the subject and will be divided into simple and easy to understand modules with reference tables, guidelines and useful information which involve the basic principles and rules to obtain good and pleasing photographs.

We will try to keep the publications as simple, but as informative, as possible and will explain the technical and creative aspects of digital photography to give you confidence during the process of shooting a photograph while learning, at the same time, the common terminology involved. The publications are designed mainly for amateurs and hobbyists to provide tips and guidelines on how to familiarize themselves with the basic concept of digital photography.

I hope you will enjoy the photography publications and I look forward to sharing with you the basic knowledge of digital photography to create beautiful images that also capture moments to remember.

Enjoy and I hope you will find it interesting.
