Image via WikipediaWelcome to the first Teach Yourself Photography blog spot.
The blogs are intended to share with you my knowledge and passion of photography. It is for those who would like to increase their skills and acquire a few tips to improve their photography. Please let me know what you think and what you might like to know about for future blogs.
It is my intention of putting a weekly posting to develop a rhythm and structure. If this is too basic for you then check in a few weeks and it might be at a level that is more suited to your needs.
Without feedback, it will not improve and as photographers, we are use to giving and receiving criticism so for maximum affect I need your input.
I will include a quote by a photographer to keep you thinking and provide ideas for improving your work.

The pdf below covers apertures, shutter speeds and an over view of what they do.
“If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough”. - Robert Capa
Please use the pdf below for the first lesson.
Have fun with your photography and I look forward to hearing from you.
