Beyond Point-and-Shoot

Learning to Use a Digital SLR or Interchangeable-Lens Camera

Beyond Point-and-Shoot

There are two types of new photographers: those satisfied with their low-cost point-and-shoot cameras, and those more enthusiastic photographers who recognize the limitations of low-cost equipment and want to improve their pictures. No longer satisfied with simple snapshots, the enthusiast moves up to a more complex digital camera-one with interchangeable lenses and manual controls-to satisfy their artistic urge. Assuming little to no knowledge of photographic terms, techniques, or technology, Beyond Point-And-Shoot is intended to help smooth the transition from photographic newbie to "real" photographer who is experienced, in-control, and passionate about their craft. Author Darrell Young explores various types of interchangeable-lens cameras, focusing on those with larger imaging sensors, such as digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras. Learn how to get the most out of your camera's automatic and semi-automatic exposure modes, as well as how to move beyond those modes and take full, manual control of your camera. Watch your photography improve as you discover how to apply important photographic principles, such as depth of field, white balance, and metering. With this newfound knowledge you'll move beyond point-and-shoot and begin taking truly great photographs. Other topics include: Camera types Lenses Aperture, shutter speed, and ISO Metering and shooting controls Lens focal lengths and angles of view The histogram Color spaces Sensors Filters Image file formats Managing digital noise And much more!

Point and Shoot Poetry

Image and Verse, for Better or Worse

Point and Shoot Poetry

Cara's poetry and photography pairings are like no other. As an artist, Cara captures her audience with her every woman ways. Her works evoke the reader’s full spectrum of emotions – from sadness to laughter, fear to faith, hate to love... every human feeling possible. Her poetry is as inspiring and thought-provoking as it is whimsical and fun; her photographs as original and earthy as they are stunning and spiritual. Cara - a romanticist while at the same time a modernist - appeals to our five senses as well as to our minds and spirits. From verse that is free-formed or rhyming and from images that are vividly colorful or black and white, her words and pictures serve as metaphors and analogies for the experiences and realities of, and the hopes and the dreams in, all of us. Still, Cara’s poems and pictures are definitely and most uniquely her own. Her coupling of verse and imagery is deeply personal and is as much about nature as it is surreal; profound, yet simple. In her wonderful little book of poetry and photography, "Point & Shoot Poetry ~ Image & Verse (for better or worse)...", Cara has so creatively combined these two art forms as to complement one another so partakers of her work not only relate to both the meaningful and the light-hearted messages and nuances, but they also are inspired to plunge deeper into their own feelings and soar higher with their own imaginations as they feast on Cara’s rich “morsels” of work. Cara’s photos capture locales such as South Dakota (where Cara was born and raised), Colorado, Nebraska, Mexico, and California. The humans (who serve as Cara’s “models”) are friends or acquaintances or those whom Cara just happened to spot and “capture” on film by merely “pointing and shooting”. They are of varying ethnicities, creeds, colors, and locales. And, the animals that “pose” for Cara are her good “friends”, as well. These "everyday" animals, people, places, and things (such as bridges, airports, alleys, school houses, highways and byways...) were so inspirational to Cara as to lead her to “tell a/their story”.

Simplifying the seemingly difficult and expensive art of underwater photography, this accessible investigation outlines the four elements of success: focus, exposure, composition, and subject.

Maintenance and first-aid tactics are presented as well, reducing the chance of disappointing malfunctions during a dive.
