Digital photography, how not to be me

Somehow, without me even realizing I fell into this category, I’ve become “the guy who is always taking all the pictures wherever we go.”  And I generally fine with this.  Typically I can amuse myself by taking pictures of random signs and things that are funny out of context.  However, I’m not a photographer.  And more importantly, I’m not a good photographer.

However, a couple items were passed my way that I felt I should pass on.  Citizen journalism includes not only researching and writing, but can be greatly enhanced by decent photography.  This article by PC Magazine goes over a lot of basic information, and it’s goal is to get you to a place where you don’t rely on the auto settings.  Get ready to read and understand words like ISO, aperture, shutter speed and f-stops.

I discovered this article while reading JOHO, and this entry has more information to share with you, including use of flashes and diffusers.
