The Olympus O-MD E-M1 is one of the most accomplished fully digital cameras ever produced. That makes it a formidable imaging tool but also gives the user a steep learning curve to get the best from it. For example, the Custom Menu alone has more than 50 entries, each with their own sub-entries. This book helps you over that learning curve by going through the menu options one by one, explaining what they do and why you might want to do it. At the end of the book, I illustrate, item by item, every menu setting I use as my basic camera setup. It won't be your ideal setup but it will give you a working configuration from which to find it. After a more than 40 years career as a professional news and magazine photographer, I went over to Micro Four Thirds camera for all my work almost as soon as they came out. I've never regretted that and I hope that with my little book you'll come to respect and admire these little jewels of camera technology as much as I do.

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!

60 Lessons for Stronger Photographs

The Visual Toolbox: 60 Lessons for Stronger Photographs is author David duChemin's conception of a “curriculum” for the first year of a photography school that doesn't exist, but could. It's what he calls “the bones”—a year's worth of lessons and assignments for photographers who want to do more than just master their cameras; it's for those who want to create photographs. It's for photographers who are stuck and for those having a hard time making it an aesthetic art and not merely a technical craft. The book is targeted at any aspiring, hobbyist, or pro photographer who can benefit from sitting with a photographer and teacher who has learned—and is still learning—these lessons the hard way and wants others to benefit from them. This book is not made up of magic bullets or quick tips, but if the reader studies the book's lessons and completes the assignments, he or she will become a stronger photographer faster than they would by just picking up a bunch of quick tips and platitudes out there in other books. With 60 short “micro¿chapter” lessons, where David pairs an explanation of the concept (“Learn to Isolate”) with an active assignment for the reader to complete, every one of the lessons is a stepping stone to becoming more proficient with the tools of the photographic art, and the means by which the reader can create stronger experiences with their images. Some of these tools are the camera and lens, but many of them have to do with composition, balance, tension, and scale—the tools of the visual language itself—or with being present, perceptive, and learning to see. And they're all practical, get¿out¿there¿and¿do¿it kind of lessons, because in the end one doesn't truly improve her photography by only reading from a book, but from time spent making photographs. This book is a collection of 60 guided steps in that direction.
