Whether you just bought a brand-new, shiny DSLR or ILC or want to make the most of a secondhand model, you’re in good hands with Get the Picture, the latest, most up-to-date guide on digital photography—all from the experts at Popular Photography magazine. 

Today’s technology has made DSLR/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 magazine 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:

DSLR Fundamentals Your go-to guide for basic camera functionality, including exposure, (aperture, ISO, and shutter speed, focus), and white balance.

Next-Level Settings Once you’ve mastered the essentials, take a tour through your camera’s various shooting modes (aperture-priority, shutter-priority, portrait, macro, and more) and experiment with its on-camera flash, bracketing functions, and shooting RAW. Explore your lens’s zoom, image stabilization, and other capabilities, too.

Bonus Gear For photo enthusiasts looking to build a starter photography kit beyond their basic camera body; study up on accessory flash units, lenses, release triggers, and simple, inexpensive lighting modifiers.

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