Beginners DSLR Photography Course By Ken Schultz

By on January 3, 2013
Okay, here we have the perfect guide for Beginners DSLR Photography… Most new DSLR camera owners use very little of the potential of their cameras. (DSLR = Digital Single Lens Reflex). The thought of moving off AUTO can be daunting. To really get creative control over your photos you need to grasp some basic photography principles – it’s not ‘rocket science’ – but it is essential.

This DSLR photography course condenses 30 years of Ken’s photojournalism and his in-the-field experience capturing images of international travel, ocean life through his career as a marine biologist and as a professional wedding photographer into a layman’s course for photography newcomers. It’s not for Professionals but rather for those with minimal background in photography or those making the transition from film SLR cameras to Digital SLR cameras.

So Ken will be teaching you exactly how to fill that gap in knowledge so you can get into the more creative modes of your camera and start taking better photos with over 4 hours training, and is so easy when you’re looking over Ken’s shoulder, as you will soon see on the video below…

    Jean Macdonald, winner of the 2011 Farmers Weekly photo competition, gives us her
    top 10 tips below.

    You can have a look at some of the entries in our photo competition
    2012 gallery.

    1. Read your manual
    This may sound obvious but a lot of people don’t do it and getting to know how your camera works is essential.

    2. Get the right setting
    Start off by setting your camera to one of its automatic modes.

    Most useful is “Program” or “P” mode on digital SLRs.

    3. Get closer
    Move in as close to the subject(s) as possible. Unless you’re taking a scenic shot, a lot of background in the picture is not important.
