So many photography books, videos, and "courses" today are either: 1. Outdated, or 2. Based on quick, how-to-snap-photos-in-different-weather-conditions-of-your-family (like the tons of 99-cent eBooks, of which I made the mistake of buying several). The Complete SLR Digital Photography Camera Course is a simple and easy - but detailed course on using your SLR to take the best photos possible with the least effort on your part. The fact that cameras today are so advanced does NOT mean that our photographs are lots of better - actually, many of the features today simply accent our bad photo-taking skills! Here, you get an excellent foundation for the basics of using SLR digital photograph (all the terms explained, the basics are patiently shown) and then the more advanced topics are brought in little by little. What I got out of the the most was the incredible power of cropping and framing, info I always just assumed was not a big deal but can completely change your picture's composition with very little effort on your part. Also, getting rid of noise which my pictures are horrid at instantly made my subsequent photos better. A fantastic course is here, I highly suugest it.
