Interchangeable lens cameras also provide more problem solving options. A smart phone camera may be able to make decent images under perfect conditions, but when those conditions deteriorate, look out. DSLRs can capture images of things that smart phone cameras just can’t. They also offer much better image quality than do smart phone cameras with their much, much smaller imaging sensors.
This book provides an introduction to using DSLR cameras and explaining the basics of creating good exposures. If you’ve just purchased your first DSLR, or if you’ve been using one a while and want to improve your photography, you’ll find the information in this book helpful. It’s geared to those who don’t have a lot of experience with photography and written in clear, plain English any beginner can follow.
Among other things, you’ll learn about the controls you’ll use to control the amount of light entering the camera, how long the camera permits light to enter, and to adjust the camera’s sensitivity to light. Once you’ve learned these controls and how to use them, it’s all brought together for you in the chapter on how to properly expose an image. This is followed by how you can make better photographs by using the information in this book.
