The Basic of Photography: Introduction & Guildlines & Homework


I really want to become a fashion photographer but before i actually start the process of shooting Fashion I need to know the basic fundamentals of photography. I’am currently reading a very bland and boring book (Which is a great book for me to take it seriously) “The Basic Book of Photography “. It has 15 chapters of great information about basic photography. So here is the guidelines to retaining this information 100% .
