In the second part of Make Great Photos, Alan addresses specific shooting situations―categorized into travel, sports and action, events, and people―discussing the challenges that each scenario poses and how to conquer them. Finally, you’ll learn the top five basic edits you need to know to make your images pop when you share them online.At the end of chapters, there are thoughtful exercises and assignments that push you to learn and grow in your photography.
