There’s a free new learning program that’s specifically targeted at first-time Digital SLR owners, but also likely to appeal to a broad spectrum of shooters including experienced enthusiasts, and those who simply want to get a better handle on all the exciting features built into their new DSLR. Starting on January 18, and every Monday for 12 weeks, Tamron will release an entertaining and informative one-minute episode of “DSLR Know How with Tamron” on YouTube that’s designed to bring picture-takers up to speed in getting the most out of their equipment.
The lighthearted, fact-filled video episodes, presented by professional photographer and instructor Andre Costantini, cover essential topics, such as Intro to DSLRs, White Balance, Autofocus, Using Scene Modes, RAW vs. JPEG, and much more. All contain a wealth of solid, useful information, compiled by leading experts and presented in straightforward, easy-to-understand language. The goal is to expand the viewers’ knowledge base as quickly as possible while providing a fun learning experience.
Once the ‘DSLR 101’ series is posted, it will be followed by a ‘202’ and ‘303’ series covering more sophisticated techniques. The release schedule of weekly introductions, says Tamron, allows viewers to try out the techniques and build a base of knowledge that creates a foundation for success.
