A Guide to DSLR Camera Basics

We’re always flattered when people come up to ask for help with their cameras. Not only does it happen in the field, but also via online comments through our videos. While we’re all learning, we know enough to get you beyond the basics.

The step up to a DSLR (Digital SLR) camera and the chance to take professional quality pictures is no longer ridiculously expensive. Even the cheaper DSLRs have the power to capture photos that can end up as a framed canvas on your wall.

Truth be told, there is a learning curve. Yet, these things aren’t that complicated either. As a beginner we think there are three components to your camera that you need to understand in order to get started with any DSLR camera.

1. Aperture
2. Shutter Speed
3. ISO

We tried to do our best to explain these in this short and simple video.
Good luck with you new future as a master photographer!
