Since DSLR’s affords so many options, unless you know a lot about digital photography, you might think that if you went out and purchased a $2000.00 camera you’d be able to take photographs just like a National Geographic photographer. But just buying an expensive camera won’t make you take better photographs then you did with your film camera.
When I teach my Basic Digital Photography I tell the class that you need to first and foremost, you need to “learn the language of photography” which is not as easy as one may think. Learning how to “make photographs rather than take photographs” requires one to understand the many options that digital photography has to offer. Most people get frustrated in learning how to use their camera and just wind up setting the automatic setting on the camera which defeats the whole purpose of buying a digital camera in the first place.
Because a digital camera gives more options to the photographer, what this booklet does is cut the many options down to three basic camera controls. Once you’ve learn the three controls you can move on in learning more advanced options of the camera.
One day in May 2009, Sean FitzPatrick - the disgraced former chief executive and chairman of Anglo Irish Bank - sat down to lunch in a Holiday Inn in Dublin. Across the table sat Tom Lyons, a business reporter with the Sunday Times.
Seven months later, the two met for the first of what would be seventeen formal, tape-recorded interviews over the course of 2010: a year when Ireland, its public finances ruined in large part by the cost of covering Anglo's losses, went bust itself. In these interviews, FitzPatrick talked at length and in detail about his banking experiences and philosophy, his colleagues and clients, his investments, his public disgrace, his arrest and his bankruptcy.
Lyons and his colleague Brian Carey draw on the FitzPatrick tapes and on their many sources within Anglo, the state and the business community to tell the story of that crisis - and of the man who became the face of it. This is a tale of toothless regulators, hopeless accountants, politicians and civil servants out of their depth, and businessmen in denial about the crash. Above all, though, it is the story of FitzPatrick: the man who built that bank that has been at the centre of Ireland's economic meltdown.

'It is a journalistic scoop; the story of a bank that got too big; a snapshot of an economic era; and, already, a piece - or at least a version - of history' Sunday Business Post
