What You've Learned

  • Composition is important to good photography.
  • When you're shooting, it's best to keep light behind you, not your subject.
  • For more natural photos, try to avoid using the flash.
  • Move closer to subjects, crop freely in the camera, and adjust your position to get a distinctive point of view.
  • The rule of thirds says to keep subjects out of the center of the image; instead, move them to the sides or up and down a little in the frame.
  • To import photos, you just plug your digital camera into your Mac, decide if you want iPhoto to delete original images from your camera, and let iPhoto do the rest.
  • To move folders of photos into iPhoto from other locations on your hard disk, you just drag the folder into the iPhoto window.
  • An important step right after you import photos is to do some quick adjustments, deleting bad images and rotating the remaining images to be oriented properly.
