Photography has never been easier. At no previous point in history has it been so simple to capture an image of the world around us. Mobile phones, tablets, and small inexpensive digital cameras have made it easy to take pictures anywhere at anytime. But does quantity translate to quality? Although it may be more accessible than ever before to take photographs, good ones often come from knowing what makes an image work. All photographers shooting both still and video can benefit from some helpful trade secrets. Each of the following chapters will highlight a tip that can be used to better capture an image from scene to screen. These tips are commonly known as ‘the rules’. Rules, however, in a medium as creative as photography is a loose term that best describes a set of creative tools learned and chosen from when the opportunity arises. This book is to inspire more creative photographs, stimulate experimentation, and deepen your passion for taking great pictures.

A stirring, witty, and poignant glimpse into the bewildering American immigrant experience from someone who has lived it. Hakakian's "love letter to the nation that took her in [is also] a timely reminder of what millions of human beings endure when they uproot their lives to become Americans by choice" (The Boston Globe). Into the maelstrom of unprecedented contemporary debates about immigrants in the United States, this perfectly timed book gives us a portrait of what the new immigrant experience in America is really like. Written as a "guide" for the newly arrived, and providing "practical information and advice," Roya Hakakian, an immigrant herself, reveals what those who settle here love about the country, what they miss about their homes, the cruelty of some Americans, and the unceasing generosity of others. She captures the texture of life in a new place in all its complexity, laying bare both its beauty and its darkness as she discusses race, sex, love, death, consumerism, and what it is like to be from a country that is in America's crosshairs. Her tenderly perceptive and surprisingly humorous account invites us to see ourselves as we appear to others, making it possible for us to rediscover our many American gifts through the perspective of the outsider. In shattering myths and embracing painful contradictions that are unique to this place, A Beginner's Guide to America is Hakakian's candid love letter to America.
