Thanks. Your article had some great tips for a raw beginner like me. I read the comments and I'm sure that many who suggested alternate techniques have more experience. However, simple ideas like using sunglasses make sense as starting point. As others have said, having instant feedback with a digital camera makes it easy to experiment. I would never have the patience to try these things out with traditional film cameras.

    I agree, and it goes even beyond experimentation. Another aspect of digital photography that accelerates learning is recording of "metadata." Every time you take a picture, the shutter speed, f-stop, white balance setting, flash mode, ISO, and more are captured and stored with the picture. Later, when viewing your images, this makes it much easier to analyze what went wrong... and right. If you're interested in reading more about this, take a look at my article, Use Metadata to Improve Your Pictures. Best of luck with your shooting!
