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 course is to fill that gap in knowledge so you can get into the more creative modes of your camera and start taking better photos. Over 4 Hours Training.

If this Course seems a little too Basic for you check out my Advanced Course for more Creative topics – EasyDSLR Digital Photography Course: Advanced

CHAPTER 1: Getting Started gives you an orientation of the course and introduces The Photo Triangle – which is the foundation that most of the concepts in this course rest on.

If you are totally new to DSLR cameras you can watch CHAPTER 2: DSLR Overview where I give you a quick tour of What a DSLR camera is, it’s benefits and essential items in your DSLR kit.

FRAME – compositon and perspective
LIGHT – Tonal values and color
FOCUS – what’s in Focus
You can Download the Printable PDF version of the Photo Triangle in Chapter 1 to have on hand during the course.

Having a solid foundation is key to understanding how the settings interact to create a great photo. In this course I cover Composition, the 3 important settings affecting Exposure: ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed, White Balance, Focus and Depth of Field, Flash basics and Diffusers.

These are some of what you will Discover:

    Great, as usual, video. One more thing to consider for some shooters–battery life. Typical DSLR 2X-3Xmore than  typical mirrorless.

    Great informative video…thanks for posting it.
    One thing not mentioned is that if you want to shoot wide angle (landscape) photography, you will be disappointed with the smaller sensors. You may purchase a 16mm wide angle lens, but if it is attached to a 2X sensor, it becomes effectively a 32mm lens when compared to the same lens on a full frame camera. So that's a negative.
    On the positive…. you will gain if you wish to concentrate on macro photography. You gain the greater depth of field.
    One last point, only because it keeps coming up in discussions. 4k video in mirrorless…yes it's nice to have. If you want to shoot primarily video, the best option is still a dedicated video camcorder. You will get a better picture and sound at half the price. You can still grab a picture as well from the video and good ones allow in camera editing.

    I'm currently on the market looking for a new camera for my channel and was hoping you would have done a review on the Canon EOS M3. I am trying to decide between that and the Sony Rx 100 iv or the Sony A5100, please please help?

    Thanks for the video. Great presentation. I moved last year from FourThirds to the FUJI X system and I’m happy with it. For home based work I wouldn’t have a problem with a DSLR but for travel it’s a no go. Too big and bulky.

    We'll all I can say is I sold my Sony A7ll after 6 months of use with it.  Low light was a pain for me focusing, over and over.  I bought the Nikon D750 and I'm more than happy with selling the Sony….why, because the Nikon just worked for what I needed it to do.  Also, I have Wifi, and a flip out screen which I love, and lightning fast low light focus…. It was a good move for me…my 2 cents.

    I chose a cannon SL1 DSLR Because I can get a nice used macro lens for it that will not cost me an arm and a leg. The lenses for the Sony mirrorless cameras are astronomical in price!

    Hello Tech Review Team,

    I do sincerely thank you for all your valuable videos and I wish you all the best.

    I am an amateur photographer and I want to turn pro. I'm basically interested in still imagery, namely Architecture, Decoration, Products and Macro.

    I'm using T5i but I want to upgrade to pro level and I'm considering moving to Sony Mirrorless full frame.

    Is moving to Sony Mirrorless a good decision? Or investing in 5D MIII and EF lenses, or moving to Nikon D800 something?

    What would you recommend?

    Thanks again for all your tips and for your advice in advance.

    DSLRs are too bulky and heavy. Full Frame mirrorless with EVF is the future. People just need to adjust to seeing a smaller Full Frame camera.

    Both Canon and Nikon are falling behind. DSLRs will be replaced by mirrorless cameras. EVF are finally getting really good quality with the advantage of being able to see exactly what your shooting, playback, aspect ratio, monochrome, etc with out taking your eye from the finder. In 5 to 7 years, most professional cameras will be mirrorless, and of course, 4k. The thing is that Canon and Nikon have all that great lenses… that's why they're resisting change. But change will come.

    I do own both of them (a Canon rebel and a Fuji xm). I'd like to add 2 points to your review that might be decisive: battery life and grip comfort. Battery life is around 500 to 900 shots for DSLR (depending on the model) while mirrorless may struggle to reach up to 500. As for comfort, smaller bodies may result in crampier hands position, even for averaged-sized people. Plus, DSLR's larger and heavier bodies (+ better grip) means they're more stable when taking a shot, especially with heavier lenses or non-stabilized lenses (primes 50mm for example). I think, just for comfort reasons, I'd stick to the DSLR format.

    So in terms of technical reasons it's just the viewfinder lag that's on the pro side for a dSLR? Everything else you mentioned could be changed easily by the manufaturers. For example, if you realy need a biger, heavier camera, why not throwing something usefull in like extanded battery?
