Raise your hand if you got a fanncy (and by fancy I mean a DSLR) camera for Christmas!!!! Raise your hand if you have a fancy camera in the closet that overwhelms you! Raise your hand if you have a fancy camera but wish you knew how to use it better!
Almost 5 years ago Chris and I bought our first DSLR without knowing the first thing about how it works. After lots of really bad pictures, reading lots of books, and taking lots of risks, I can honestly say that I love using my camera and know a trick or two that I can pass on to you.
Come join me for a quick, down and dirty (well, not really dirty…we’ll all stay very clean, I promise) introduction to digital SLR photography. Here’s the info:
