The tips range from basics for snapshooters to advanced techniques for hobbyists and pros. "You never what you're going to get from one day to the next," notes Resnick. "We have some surprises in store for the next 20 weeks."

Everyone, from snapshooters through professional photographers, will see an improvement in their photography over the next 100 days if they put these tips into practice."
