Photography 101

Do you have a DSLR camera, but you'd like to learn more about how to use it?  Are you stuck on "auto mode" and want to get better photos but just don't know how?  You, or someone who really likes you a lot, paid a nice chunk of change for your DSLR.  But now that you have it, you may realize that there sure are a lot of buttons and numbers on it that you don't know how to use.  You may have even tried to read your camera's manual, but it seems to be in a foreign language!  

Photography 101 lessons are totally free and designed for beginning DSLR users and are in simple, easy-to-understand, language.  Many of these lessons are appropriate for point-n-shoot users too.  Just click on any of the links below.  

I also offer DSLR mentoring for folks that would like one-on-one custom lessons and coaching with yours truly.  Click here to learn more about my DLSR mentoring.

The nifty 50 (50mm lens)


  1. I got a 50mm lens for Christmas after about 6 months of playing with my first DSRL and the kit lens. I am revisiting your 101 series and LOVING it! You are the only one who make this clear for me. Thanks again!

    1. Oh I'm so glad you and liking it! Holler if you have any questions. I'd be glad to help!

  2. This is great! I love photography but I'm not a pro. I'm still learning and these tutorials helps. Thanks for sharing! :)

  3. Just got my first "fancy" camera for Christmas and was a bit overwhelmed with it at first since I have never taken a photography class in my life! Was super excited to find your blog and these 101 posts.. I am soaking them all in and feeling more confident! Thanks a mill! -Elissa Jones

  4. Which lens is the best to get after the 50mm?

  5. I'd like to hear your standpoint on fixed vs. zoom lenses. I'm ready for another lens and I've narrowed it down to only 8 lenses, three of which are zooms (14-24 2.8. 24-70 2.8, 70-200 2.8, 35mm 1.4, 50mm 1.2, 85mm 1.2, 100mm 2.8 macro). Winning the lottery would come in handy to fund my crazy photography obsession. After I win it, my first stop will be the camera shop. I sold my sons' bookshelf from their room on Craigslist to buy a new lens. Can you relate?
