    Thank you, Jeff for the excellent presentation. I have learnt a lot of new things today. I shall try out many of the tips you have given.

  • A pity he kept saying “out of focus” while I’m pretty sure he was talking about either motion blur or camera shake.

  • http://www.youtube is banned in my country. Can anyone tell me the other source to watch this video?

  • Cindy Miller

    Great. I really learned a lot.

    In a trend I find increasingly frustrating, using you tube and other uncaptioned video rather than writing an article, DPS is becoming less accessible to the deaf and profoundly hard of hearing. This is ironic in DPS’s case as photography is one of the main pursuits of our culture as our disability keeps us focused of visual hobbies or professions.

    Please provide written transcripts or guides with if you choose to continue along this path.

    Thanks for posting this. As a high school photo teacher, it helps me to see how and what other teachers teach. I get bogged down in too much detail sometimes and this video has helped me to “focus” on the most important information and to see a different way to present my lessons.

    Thank you Peter .. I am deaf and was excited when I read the title of the article as I am always looking for good tips for photography. I was very disappointed when I saw that it was a video. :0(

    Hello Jeff

    Friend, first of all, great presentation. I would suggest all the amateur photographers to watch this video for better understanding of their camera.

    My question is regarding the Flash Component exposure. You said to use flash, reduced to -1, when shooting sometimes in dark or low light. But these flashes have a limited range,therefore will not light up anything more than 10 meters, so how do we get no starburst and how does it actually helps.

    One more pic you showed of was of Eiffel Tower, you said without flash it was completely lit up and impossible to shoot, but somehow that changed when you used flash. The tower seems to be at least 100mts from your camera, i am confused !!

    Best Regards
