Today’s technology has made DSLR and ILC cameras more powerful (and more reasonably priced) than ever, and getting the perfect shot has never been easier—if you know how to get the most out of your machine. Popular Photography contributor Dan Richards walks you through all the functions, modes, buttons, and dials on the latest standard models, providing solid technical advice in handy tips paired with beautiful, aspirational imagery that demonstrates each tactic. With sections on:

Photo Primer Get to know your camera's parts, dials, and settings, and learn best practices for cleaning, storage, and uploading before your first shoot.

See the Light Your go-to guide for basic camera functionality. You’ll find out how to capture light with the right exposure using aperture, ISO, and shutter speed; make your photos cool or warm with white balance; and banish blur with manual or autofocus.

See Through the Lens Once you’ve mastered the essentials, refine your ability to seize the moment for the best shot possible. Frame your scene artfully with the right focal length, perspective, and composition, and reveal the natural beauty of your surroundings with attention to color and timing.

See Better with Next-Level Accessories For photo enthusiasts looking to build a starter photography kit beyond their basic camera, this section helps you study up on tripods, accessory flash units, specialty lenses, release triggers, filters, and simple, inexpensive lighting modifiers. Then perfect your RAW photos in post-production software.

For amateur photographers, there is no better resource on DSLR and ILC photography.
