With the advancement of digital camera technology, we can now buy a digital camera at a reasonably low price, take photos at little or no cost, and share them quickly with others. These cameras are easy to use, so you donâ€™t really have to learn much to use them. However, you will sometimes see that some of the photos did not come out as well as you liked them to. You will also see that some others take better photos than you do, with cameras that are similar to yours. In this book, I tried to describe some simple guidelines that help you to take better photos, without expensive equipment or a deep technical knowledge. I learned most of these guidelines the hard way; by making a lot of mistakes, looking back at my photos, observing how other people take photos, and experimenting. I tried to write them in a style that is easy to read, using examples wherever possible. I hope this book will help you to learn what I know in much less time than I took, and in future take much better photos than I do.
