Getting to know your camera—knowing what the different settings and features do and how and when to adjust these settings—is key to becoming a better photographer. Learning how to control your camera is the best way to increase your chances of getting great shots.
The B&H video below featuring Jeff Cable can help with this. In this video, Jeff does a wonderful job of explaining the 15 most important features of DSLRs. And, though step-by-step examples, he helps you recognize how to adjust your camera settings "to get the best shot possible each time".
It's a long video—it runs about 68 minutes—but it's well worth the time spent.
By the way, Jeff has done a number of other B&H videos that are equally well done. You can find these under the B&H label on YouTube. His blog is also full of great photography and Photoshop tips and advice. You can check it out here or at his Facebook page.

I love images that are steeped in rich, luscious colors.
But I also love the simplicity and charm of black and white photography. There's just something so classic and timeless about a black and white image. Black and white photos are all about shapes and textures and the way that the light plays with those elements. And without color, there's nothing to distract from the message/emotion captured in an image.
Fall is almost here!
The official start of Fall is September 23. It's just a mere two weeks away! And with the cooling weather and the reduced sunlight, the trees begin to change color, creating a photographer's paradise with some of the most breathtaking scenics of the year.
