Camera Basics

When my first DSLR camera arrived in the post I was equally excited and dumbfounded. I took my camera everywhere, shooting everything I saw, but I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing.

I’d never had any form of tuition - all I’d used in recent years was smartphone cameras, and none of my friends were into photography or video. So I took to YouTube.

There’s hundreds, even thousands of great photo tutorials up on YouTube, but at the time I never really came across that one channel with everything in one place, explained simply without other confusing jargon thrown all about the place.

I plan to change that.

YouTube is a magnificent platform for learning, no matter the subject matter. You can convey so much more in video format than say, a blog post. Visual examples to represent key points leave a lasting impression compared to bare text. Type in a question, you’ll likely find your answer.

My aim is to have all the answers on a single channel, making it far easier for beginners to learn. I’m cutting down right to the basics, keeping it simple and even setting tasks to get viewers practicing what they’re learning - I’m a firm believer that you learn by doing, not by just watching!
