Photography is NOT a spectator sport. As useful as sitting on your couch watching workout videos, this series is not meant to be read through from the comfort of your computer chair. Pause. Do the exercises. Evaluate your progress. Mess up. Get dirty.
Cheat sheet! I've always been a fan of manual photography. I think it's more impressive to TAKE a great photo than to edit a photo to be great. Don't get me wrong though, I like editing software as well.
