Hi, I’m Michael Stewart. I’m a commercial photographer of more than 20 years experience e and a digital photography expert. I’m here to show you simple, fast, fun digital photography.
In today’s video, we will cover types of cameras, features to look for and use in a digital camera, file formats, like JPEG, TIFF, camera settings, wind and how to make adjustments to your camera for the correct exposure, file management, how to download and to save files for the long term, color management, how to get that really crisp correct color on your images, editing images for size, sharpness, cropping, photo sharing on size like Smug Mug and Flickr and emailing and building galleries of your images.
The equipment you’ll need is a digital camera, a computer and an internet connection for sharing your images I started in photography with a manual camera where you set your shutter, aperture, focus, film speed, you set everything yourself.
Today’s digital cameras have a lot of this automated for you but it's still important to know what that automation is doing to make good images. Also, the workflow is much easier with the computer than it ever was with the darkroom. Once you know the basics of digital photography, it can be simple, fast and fun. So let's get started.
