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.
