The guide also provides in-depth information on how to create fine art photographs, including tutorials on post-processing.
The guide is presented in a concise, step-by-step format that provides all the information needed to understand the basics of photography and how to produce fine art photographs. It can be used as an educational resource for students of photography, or just as a reference work for the amateur photographer who would like to learn more about these topics.
The guide is divided into six chapters, each of which covers a different topic of photography. The first chapter addresses the basics of photography, including aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. It also provides some information on the types of lenses available for different types of cameras.
