Beginner’s Guide to SLR Photography Review & Giveaway

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this DVD guide in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.


"Use your camera like a pro." has launched their newest training video - Beginner's Guide to SLR Photography.

When I first got my Canon a few years ago, I was definitely a beginner! I still am. I've left it on Auto for the longest time until I received this video guide to help me enhance my photography skills.

  • Shutter speed and motion effects
  • Aperture (f-stop), Depth of field and Bokeh
  • ISO sensitivity and avoiding noise
  • Automatic vs. Creative modes
  • Getting a perfect focus
  • Shooting in full manual
  • Finding the right white balance
  • The beauty of RAW
  • All about lenses
  • Best practices for flash
  • Best outdoor lighting
  • Indoor lighting techniques
  • Finding the best composition

Free Photography Tips

Each chapter will go over the different modes on your camera and you'll get to put your skills to the test with the assignments included in the guide. I love this feature because you can practice the variety of techniques with each lesson as you go along.

One of the assignments I really liked was taking a picture of a water drop. I still have some practicing to do but here's what I managed to capture:

I learned a lot of different ways to make my photos better by taking my camera off of Auto. The DVD guide is very easy to follow and I'll continue to use it as a reference!
