Learn how to use your camera

essential_camera_skillsAre you new to photography? Or maybe you just need to a refresher course on how to properly use your camera? I know, I know. All of our gear comes with a “how to” book, but let’s be honest, the damn thing seems like it’s written in a foreign language. I found mine to be very intimidating and never looked at it again. HA! I took the time to find a solution, though. … Extremely Essential Camera Skills by Photography Concentrate.

Photography Concentrate took the time to put together this great PDF guide about how to use your camera, what most of the buttons do, and the correct name for everything. Why do I recommend this one over all of the other ones out there? I recommend it because they wrote their content in a very easy to understand manner and it’s affordable. When I first started my photography career, like many of you, I had to teach myself and did not have a disposable income to attend a workshop yet. This guide was one of the first PDF’s I turned to to make sure I understood the basics. Photography Concentrate, also, includes video tutorials along with this PDF so it’s like a BOGO! And who doesn’t love a BOGO?! So, go check out their website. They have other guides and a few free resources too!

Remember, once you learn the rules, you get to break them and be creative!

    Amber - You’re so right- They DEFINITELY need to hire another writer for those books that come with the camera. Those things are impossible to understand, they are so technical, with no modern analogies!

    Your photography work is beautiful! I used to photograph a LOT and I’ve been wanting to get back into it. I used to be a family/lifestyle photographer, but I never felt 100% happy taking photos of other people’s children whom I had just met. Now I focus on branding and web design work, and I’m really happy with it, but miss photography! I may make it just a personal hobby. I also love having physical photos to look back at.

    How long have you been a photographer?

    This is my first visit to your website, and I’m glad to have found it :)
