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.
