Rob Sheppard, author/photographer of Macro Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots, provides guidance on how to get started capturing the world of the very tiny. Whether you want to show the exquisite intricacy of a delicate flower or the fascinating machine-like details of an insect's body, Rob explains the kind of equipment you'll need, how to control your camera's focus, and the importance of the background behind your subject for getting that perfect shot.
Nick Fancher, author of Studio Anywhere: A Photographer's Guide to Shooting in Unconventional Locations, shows you how to use a blacked out kiddie pool for a dramatic fashion shoot.
David DuChemin, author of The Visual Toolbox: 60 Lessons for Stronger Photographs, explains that photography is about stories, and life, and photographs that say something about those things. It is not about cameras.
Scott Kelby explains what to do if your hard drive crashes or your computer dies or gets stolen (with the only copy of your catalog on it) by managing these potential disasters in advance, and what to do if the big potty hits the air circulation device, in this excerpt from The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC Book for Digital Photographers.
As mentioned in my first post concerning "The Best Android Camera Apps Right Now", I know next to nothing about photography.
This said, I know how to figure things out. As such, here are some basic tips for taking mobile photos in the sunlight.

Hi, I'm Brad. You don't know me, yet. For the next few months, I will be writing a blog series for Peachpit titled, Photography 101. I am not a photographer. The only camera I own is in my Android Galaxy S4. I have always been more interested in what the mind can remember than what a photo can capture. This being said, for the coming months I am going to throw myself into the world of photography and document it through this blog. It's called Photography 101 but really, it's photography for idiots (like myself).
So, without further preface, "The Best Android Photo Apps". For more information, check out "Android Photography: Take Better Photos With Your Android Phone."
Every month in our Photography newsletter, we feature the work of a new photographer who has contributed to our Photography Newsletter Flickr group. This month, we chose the photo “Sunset Paddle” by UK-based photographer Sandra Tinari.
