The problem is, they are now holding a bigger and more expensive point-and-shoot camera. If they knew even a few tips, they could take so much better photos!
Last year, along with B&H Photo, I created this video:
This is a free class to help you or your friends get the most out of your DSLR camera. It is aimed at the novice and intermediate user, and should be easy for most people to understand. If you are one of those lucky people to get a new DSLR, and are new to photography, check it out.
People often ask me why I let B&H post these videos at no charge, and the reason is, I love photography and want to spread the passion to others. More than money, it is so rewarding to get email messages from people all over the world who have learned from this and my other free videos. With some simple tips, like those in the class, it can change the way people take photos and yield much better photos. And then, they too might see how creative they can be with these amazing cameras.
If you know someone who just got their first DSLR, or has had one stuck in automatic mode for many years, let them know about this video. I am proud that this video is now the most viewed classroom video on the B&H YouTube channel with more than 670k views.
And also, remember that you and your friends can enter your email address at the top right of this blog to get an email any time I write a new blog post.
Happy holidays and happy shooting everyone!
