3 steps to learning how to use your camera
Are you ready to learn how to actually use your camera?? Or maybe you're wanting to buy a nice camera but you're afraid you won't be able to use it? I promise you can learn to use your camera. AND you'll love it!
1. Take a class.
Learn how to use your camera from the comfort of your own home! I've found a couple amazing online Craftsy classes that will teach you how to use your camera and be your family's photographer and take those amazing photos you see in your head but don't quite turn out the way you wished.
This class is available to you absolutely FREE when you buy the Ultimate DIY Bundle (offer good through January 26th). That's a $59.00 value if you don't buy the bundle. (one free class per bundle)
This Basics of Digital Photography class has glowing reviews:
Wow, those are high praise!
I also keep seeing glowing reviews on this next course.
"I can’t tell you how excited and relieved I am to finally learn how to use my DSLR camera properly (or at least start to!) and take it off auto. While a photography class has been on my list for, oh, years now, fitting it in around my other responsibilities and the family schedule just didn’t happen. Until I decided to try an online photography class called Family Photography." - Jean from The Artful Parent
The great thing about these courses is that they're online so you can do it in the comfort of your pajamas after the kids are in bed. What's even better is that you'll have access to the class for as long as you need! Do the lessons at your own pace!
This class is available to you absolutely FREE when you buy the Ultimate DIY Bundle (offer good through January 26th). That's a $49.00 value if you don't buy the bundle.

2. Save a cheat sheet
The thing about photography is that there is a lot to learn and remember. Fortunately, you can cheat a little. There are tons of cheat sheets out there so make sure you save one!

Keep these ebooks handy! Lots of invaluable stuff to refresh your mind when you forget what your ISO is! (all these are in the Ultimate DIY Bundle plus over 75 other books and courses)
That's right, a photo editing course comes in this bundle too! The photography ebooks & courses alone make this bundle SO worth the price!
3. Practice, practice, practice
The only thing that will get you comfortable with your camera is practice! Take a ton of photos, upload them to your computer then critique yourself and go back out again.
If you look at your photos over the course of a year they will continue to improve and you'll start seeing the photos look just as you had envisioned!
