Photography Training DVD Review
As a mom and as a blogger, I want to become a better photographer. I love taking photos to capture the memories with my growing kids. I make yearly photo books. I have always relied on the auto setting but I am finally beginning to understand how much better my photographs can be with an SLR camera that allows you to control the lighting and focus of photographs. It is my New Year’s resolution to become a better photographer so I was happy to receive a copy of the Beginner’s Guide to SLR Photography (Training DVD) to review.
The Beginner’s Guide to SLR Photography Training DVD is an interactive video that teaches new camera users how to get the best pictures possible with any camera. The photography training dvd goes into depth on how an SLR is different from a cellphone camera or a camera used in auto mode. The photography training dvd teaches you how to get the perfect exposure. You will learn about shutter speed and motion effects as well as aperture and depth of field. You will become familiar with ISO sensitivity, avoiding noise and bokeh.
There was a lot to learn when I watched this photography training dvd. In fact, it was a little intimidating which is why I really liked that they give you assignments after teaching you new information. This allows you to work with your camera to really learn about what they have told you first hand so you can remember it better.
I wanted this training video because I wanted to know if getting an SLR camera was worth it to me and if I got one, if I would be able to work it anyway! This photography training dvd has helped me grasp the basics of why I need an SLR camera and given me the confidence that as I work with this video I will learn to be a real photographer that captures great results that I could not with an auto setting. I really liked how they demonstrate their learning points by showing you photographs of the same subject taken as different setting and different shutter speeds and apertures so you learn exactly how to get the results you want and you see how different photos can come out based on your settings. I plan to rewatch this video many times to let it all sink in fully. I would recommend the Beginner’s Guide to SLR Photography to anyone who wants to take the next step and become a better photographer.
