Digital Photography Lessons -- How To Master Your Camera!

Article by Dan Eitreim

Whether you’ve gotten a new digital camera or have an old one lying around and you just want to learn the secrets to getting good photos out of it… digital photography lessons can cut years of frustration and torment off your learning curve.

Too many of us try to master our cameras by buying the latest gadget or learning the hottest new “tip.” Unfortunately, this will leave huge gaps in your education and your photos will suffer. Even worse, you won’t know why…so you can’t fix the problem.

Getting an amazing and creative shot truly isn’t all that difficult and learning how to get it should be relatively painless. IF you are learning in a systematic way.

But, not all digital photography lessons are created equal.

Many of the courses out there deliberately try to make it sound difficult and confusing, just to justify their large price tags. Of course, to make it sound like they really know what they are talking about, they have to write the course so that it takes a PhD degree just to understand it too!

Few courses offer easy to understand information that is going to really help, right now, today.

Here is the first step in getting stunning photos…you have to keep records of what you are doing and what is working (and not working).

The best photographers ALL learned to master their camera by keeping a photo notebook and any good course of digital photography lessons should include keeping a notebook.

They record a pre-visualization of what they are after, then they record the settings, shooting conditions and etc.

Once they get the photos back from the lab -- or once they get back to their computer to download the digital shots (never judge a photo by the screen on the camera -- it’s just too small), they check their notebook.

If the photo was exactly as expected, they record it in the notebook and move on. If the photo didn’t live up to the pre-visualized concept, they record THAT too.

Then, they make a note of several ways the photo might have gone wrong and how to fix the problem.

Then they go out and shoot again!

Rinse and repeat until you’ve mastered that shot. Then move on to the next one. In a matter of hours, you will see improvement in your photographs. In a matter of weeks, you will be able to accurately shoot whatever type photos you want.

Few digital photography lessons are more powerful than simply keeping (and using) a shot notebook. Try it, you’ll like it.

I know how hard it can be to try and capture your creative vision with a camera, but if you really want to be creative you’ll need to learn a couple methods that work amazingly well…They are simple to pick up, work right away and don’t take any practice -- you can read how to do it in my free ebook here… “Secrets To Creating Stunning Photos!”

Don’t give up hope, it’s NOT impossible. To learn how to put that elusive “WOW” factor into your photography -- just click here…

I gladly offer this basic, 5-part series of photography lessons FOR FREE! Our world has become increasingly visual in the way we communicate. We not only take more pictures, we show them, send them and display them to more eyes than ever before. Wouldn’t it be nice to capture and show better pictures? In this series, I get us thinking about… 1. How to tell a story with our photographs by understanding the 4 dimensions associated with the art. 2. The basic elements of “composing” our photographic story. How do we put things in our viewfinders so people get the essence of that moment that inspired us. 3. Understanding exposure, light and color and how they combine to say what we want. 4. How lens choice and operation effects focus and how focus effects what we show in our photos 5. The people in our photographs and the people we are showing them to. Please enjoy these lessons. They’re not meant to be comprehensive and their not meant to be exhaustive or advanced. That doesn’t mean I don’t encourage any questions you might want to post for either me to try to answer or anyone else who comes along. Please, be kind, helpful and enjoy.
