DLSR Cheatsheet: Manual Photography

So you finally bought a DSLR camera? Congratulations! You own the pinnacle of digital photography technology – and while you’re certainly impressed by your DSLR’s features, you may be overwhelmed by them at the same time.

Manual Photography Made Easy
Learning the manual settings on your DSLR is not essential, but it can help you truly master the camera and its many settings – and it’s a must if you want to shoot like the pros.  This Manual Photography Cheat Sheet will help teach you how to use your new DSLR’s powerful manual settings.


Created by self-taught photographer Miguel Yatco, this infographic will help you take your picture-taking skills to new heights.

Digital Single Lens Reflex cameras, or DSLRs, are incredibly popular but many people don’t take the proper amount of time to learn everything your DLSR can do. Sure, a digital camera takes a lot of the hassle out of taking pictures because everything is automated and digital. However, some of your best pictures can be lost because you didn’t know how to use your camera in poor lighting or with the manual settings.

Take a course in digital photography, or teach yourself how to use the most basic features with practice. You’ll find the pictures you take will be significantly better and you’ll find that the investment you made in your camera is worth even more.

Learning Your New DSLR Camera – Online Training, Summer Camps & Courses

Learning how to use a Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera can take time, and if you don’t have a friend or teacher to show you how to use it, a DSLR can be challenging as well. Manuals help, but reading about how to use a sophisticated piece of photographic equipment isn’t quite the same as having hands-on time operating it.

To get the most out of a DSLR, you need to know how to use all of its features – the shutter speed, aperture and ISO (light sensitivity) – and how those features enhance your photos. Now, suppose there was an online app or web site that helped show you how all these features worked, so you could “test drive” them before you bought a camera?

Introducing CameraSim.


CameraSim lets you see how camera settings such as shutter speed affect your shots.

This web app lets you see how camera settings such as shutter speed will affect your pictures. The sample picture even includes a spinning pinwheel to change your shutter speed and eliminate motion blur. CameraSlim is a great way to get familiar with a camera’s features.

If you’re really serious about learning how to use a DSLR camera, why not take a course or enroll in a digital photography summer camp? The skills you learn will improve your photography. Digital Media Academy offers several week-long courses that give you hands-on experience using DSLRs and digital photography training. Learn how to shoot your best photos and get the most from the images you capture by learning Advanced Digital Photography and Photoshop. Put yourself in the picture with DMA.
