The Guardian offers free guide to photography

Fancy yourself a bit of a photographer? Pick yourself up a copy of The Guardian on Saturday the 17th and you’ll also walk away with an 84 point guide to photography.

Contained within you’ll find a whole host of tips and tricks used by The Guardian’s own in house-photography team, a buyers guide for the latest and greatest kit, and seven “masterclass” assignments which will get you geared up and taking photos the right way.

Each assignment will include step by step guides from the authors and let you know where they draw their own inspiration from.

The guide comes courtesy of Roger Tooth, Head of Photography, award winning photographer Dan Chung and Critic Sean O’Hagan. Submit your own photo to now and you could stand to win a place in their Masterclass of your choice.

The front cover of Saturday’s guide will feature the winning photo from a competition run in October which warranted over 500 submissions via The Guardian website. We’ve seen some of them and they’re phenomenal, but this one has to be our favorite:

The winning image will be selected by Brett Rogers, Director of the Photographers Gallery. Tough break, Brett, we couldn’t pick one if our lives depended on it.
