Sometimes, the best way to learn photography is in small bites. In our Photo Tips section (formerly known as "100 in 100"—100 photo tips in 100 days), offers quick picture-taking or gear-using ideas. Most of them can be read in a minute or two, but the lessons learned can help you become a better photographer.

Subjects include lighting and composition, exposure tips, how to pose people, choosing a lens to fit the photo, and much more.

Nearly three million photographers have visited our Photo Tips since we started posting them in September 2007. There are over 200 articles, and more to come. Read 'em all--then go out and shoot, and put these tips into practice and watch your photography improve.
