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.

great shots–it’s the person behind the camera. In Getting Started in Digital Photography: From Snapshots to Great
Shots, photographer and instructor Khara Plicanic teaches the basics of photography and digital camera functions
that you can apply to any camera, anywhere, any time– answering questions like: What do all those different modes mean and when do I use them? What’s a megapixel and why should I care?

Follow along with Khara, and you will:
Learn about shutter speed, aperture, and shooting modes Improve those yellow dingy photos of your kids’ indoor sporting events Fix the exposure on shots that are too dark or too bright Move beyond the Auto mode to take advantage of your camera’s settings Discover that the key to great shots is to learn your way around your camera
By the time you’re finished, you’ll know how to best use the features of whatever camera you already have to take
great shots. And once you’ve got the shots, show them off! Join the book’s Flickr group, share your photos, and
