Beginning with equipment selection and use, readers are guided through all the common pitfalls in the photographic process; from common issues with light source and setup, to predictable problems working with staged backgrounds, to post-production's typical traps. Knowing what the potential problems of any stage are in advance can help avoid them, and, though it can be dispiriting hearing of exactly how everything can go wrong, Drame is sure to remind readers of how great the potential rewards are when one does get it right.
Karen Dorame Karen Dorame has had a camera in her hand since elementary school when she was given a twin lens reflex by her award-winning photographer mother. A BS in journalism eventually landed her a public relations job where photographic experience was put to valuable use in creating brochures and public displays for a California public health department. Most recently, she has taught a variety of photography classes at Dixie University in Southern Utah. 101 Mistakes Photographers Should Never Make is her fourth published book to aid photographers along their path to perfection."
