When Miss A was born, one of the things I knew I wanted to do was learn photography. I knew she’d grow up fast, and that I would want to capture as much of her growing personality as I could. So what did I do? I ran out and got my first DSLR when she was 2 months old. It was an Olympus E-510. It was a fantastic camera, and I honestly believe it was one of the best baby purchases I made.
Since then, I’ve upgraded to a Nikon d300s, which I love more than words can say. But sometimes, even after taking a couple classes and having a few years experience with the camera, you need a refresher course. I recently got a chance to review the Learn and Master Photography kit, and it did just the trick!
Learn and Master Photography comes with 24 lessons on 15 DVDs, plus a handy companion lesson book, and two discs with all of the raw and jpg files you’ll need to get started learning how to use your new DSLR camera and how to process photos. You’ll learn everything from what ISO, aperture and shutter speed are (and what they mean to the quality of your photo), photography style guidelines (such as the rule of thirds), digital file management, and other useful tips to help you go from camera novice to camera aficionado.
Best of all, this can all be done from the comfort of your own home! All you need is a DVD player to play the lessons.
The Learn and Master Photography kit retails for $249, but right now they have a sale going on! Until July 10th, you can purchase the set for $149.
