You can’t always change how someone looks, but you can control the way you photograph that individual. In this chapter from Nikon D5500: From Snapshots to Great Shots, Rob Sylvan explores some camera features and techniques that can help you create great portraits with your Nikon D5500.

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."
