In this episode, I show how to take a photo in full automatic mode. A lot of pros would say that only Manual / Av / Tv modes should be used, and they would be partly right, but everyone has to start somewhere, and I believe full auto mode is the best place to start to get acquainted with a DSLR camera.
In future videos I will show how to go beyond auto, but full automatic mode is definitely a good place to begin until someone is ready for the next steps.
In this video, I show how to attach a camera to a tripod. This works with most DSLR, point&shoot and even most video cameras which have a tripod mount. The 1/4″-20 thread is the current standard for most equipment, though for some heavier equipment (weighting 50lbs and costing more than a sports car) they sometimes use a larger standard.
In this episode, I show how to clean a camera lens. While most camera shops offer lens cleaning services, you may want to clean your own lenses. I show the safest way I know how, and the way I personally do it, but this is a “do it at your own risk” tutorial.
In this video, I show how to change a camera lens on a DSLR, mirrorless, or other interchangeable lens camera. Each brand can be a little different, some you turn clockwise, others counter-clockwise, but the general idea is the same for all cameras.
In this video, I am very excited to introduce my new series called Photo Tutorial 101 – Take Control of your Camera, where I will teach the theory and techniques of photography aimed at the introduction level.
I will take you through a journey from taking your first photos all the way to using your camera in advanced mode, sharing theories, techniques, and also hands-on practice sessions to learn how to take better photos.
