Serving to introduce and explain all aspects of beginning to work with a DSLR camera, DSLR Camera Basics: Getting Started in Photography from PhotoShop Cafe is a 4.5 hour-long DVD-ROM presentation designed to educate the total newcomer to photography. Beginning with sections dedicated to learning the ins and outs of a DSLR, the series of tutorials goes on to include topics on exposure, white balance, focus, and different shooting and camera modes. Hosted by Tim Cooper, this educational video serves to quickly familiarize all the controls of a DSLR and how they can be used in practical applications.

Designed within an intuitive interface for computer playback, this DVD-ROM allows you to quickly skip to lessons of interest and control your playback for the most effective learning experience. Additionally, low-resolution video files are also included for playback on an iPod, iPad, iPhone, or via an Apple TV.

Introduction: Host, Tim Cooper, introduces the general lessons and concepts of the entire presentation.

Your DSLR: This section offers basic information on learning the controls and features of your camera.

Things to Get Started: Covering basic accessories and technologies needed to begin photographing, this section provides useful information on the essential tools to complement your DSLR.

Lenses: Presenting an overarching perspective on lenses and how to choose them, this lesson reviews a range of standard lenses and how to best pair different ones for different applications.

Focusing Your Camera: With the equipment-dedicated lessons complete, this section covers some basic handling techniques for acquiring focus in a range of shooting situations.

Exposure: This lesson is purely focused on the three components that make up 'exposure' in photography, ISO, shutter speed, and aperture, and how each affects one another.

Shutter Speeds: Paying more attention to shutter speed specifically, this lesson delves more deeply into the concepts of how to control and utilize different shutter speed values.

Apertures: Following the shutter speed tutorial is a dedicated lesson on apertures, and how changing these settings can alter the look and feel of a photograph.

Exposure Problems: With the basics of exposure understood, this section covers some of the common problems that can occur despite the advanced technologies housed by DSLRs. You will learn how and why exposures can stray from ideal, and then how to fix them depending on the situation.

White Balance: Moving from exposure to color, this lesson teaches you how to understand white balance settings and how to change them depending on different lighting conditions.

File Formats: This section pays specific attention to how digital image files are recorded and saved, and how to adjust the quality settings in-camera.

Shooting Modes: Beyond basic exposure modes, different shooting modes can further be employed to benefit your shooting in different conditions and for different effects.

Photographic Composition: Straying from a completely technical lesson, this section speaks on some basic compositional elements that can be employed to create visually interesting images.
