In this series I will explore with you what it takes to make photographs that inspire others with an emotional response, taking into account the thought that goes into the creation as well as the hands-on clicking of the shutter.  So we'll we cover the equipment and how to use it, and factors to compose for effect.  Topic categories might include Exposure, Composition, Equipment, Technique and what happens After the Shot.  

The list of links below are designed to be followed more-or-less, but definitely not strictly in order.  Work your way down the list, and as you do, check out the corresponding Challenge Photos.
