DSLR Basic Settings Tutorial – Photography/Videography 101

By | January 4, 2018

Never used a camera before? Want to learn how? If you just bought a DSLR or any camera and want to learn how to use it, this is the video for you!

This tutorial is for people who have never used a camera before and are getting into Photography and/or Filmmaking for the first time. I walk beginners through how to get a great shot and what exactly all those numbers mean on the camera.

I review, in detail, what Shutter Speed, Aperture (F-Stop), ISO, and Depth of Field are. This video is in a lecture style, so grab a pen and paper and take some notes. But I keep it fun by cracking jokes and dropping the occasional curse because, well, we’re all adults here. Aren’t we?

Continue your lesson by watching PART 2 here: https://youtu.be/U33Uxtt7474
The next lesson is all about the Light Meter.

    Excellent video, I have not heard Fstop, Shutter speed and ISO (ASA) explained so well and how it all fits together. Thank you so much!

    The world celebrates God's brilliance with the invention of the lens after the Iris of the eye.
