My goal is to help you realize how inferior your current photos are, and to show you how easy it can be to start using a DSLR camera to shoot stunning photography of your children, family members, and friends. Even if you can’t afford to buy a DSLR camera to get started, I can show you how you can start shooting photos with $2,500 of DSLR camera equipment in just a couple days without even having to buy one.

  • I’ll teach you my method of using over $2,500 of DSLR camera gear for less than $100
  • I’ll explain and demonstrate the 4 secrets to getting perfect images from a DSLR camera… every time
  • You’ll watch over my shoulder as I do real portrait photo shoots with a DSLR camera, and I’ll explain exactly how I’m getting perfect exposures
  • Then you’ll see how I get the photos off the camera and into some photo editing software to make some easy, quick, and powerful color adjustments, transporting our photos to a whole new level of beauty
  • As a bonus, I’ll provide you with direct links to the DSLR photography equipment I recommend, whether you need to buy it or rent it

When shooting in manual mode, you're responsible for every aspect of the shot. You need to consider each of the 4 settings I mentioned above and watch the camera's light meter to ensure your image has the right color tone, is bright enough, has the desired background blur (or clarity), and is able to capture any motion that may be present.

In this lecture I'll show you how 3 of these settings work together to produce the correct brightness, background blur, and motion freezing.
