I’m showing you the material now and you’ll either agree with me or realize it’s not really for you, but i guarantee you that this book is LEGIT INFORMATION.
He explains everything beginning with the basics.
He has also uploaded an awesome video to explain budding photographers everything with ease.
Above are some vivid example he uses for the visual learners.
Evan also explains what happens to a photograph depending on the different modes a picture is taken with. Most of the programs just explain the best way to take it, but Evan on the other hand explains every mode with the intention of making you adequate and self reliant.
