The tutorials are separated into two categories: Photography techniques and Image processing techniques. Photography techniques are suggestions to help you take better pictures in all types of environment and lighting conditions. This includes photo compositions, low light photography, portrait photography, landscape photography, macro photography and many others. Image processing techniques are similar to working in darkroom to alter images, except that we will be using software instead. You will probably get carpel tunnel syndrome instead of chemical poisoning trying to alter pictures!
