Initial continue the course of photographing from Bryan F Peterson. It's easy to see! On the content of the course is close to what makes Blue Crane Digital, but the form and manner of speaking - it shows. The fact that today is lined for the tracker - The perfect picture - the most striking and unusual version of "Introduction to the photo. For each topic, the leading a la real-time "makes traditionally the wrong picture. Then he explains that the need to change and making the right shot. Then the screen shows a series of "correct" example as a minimum level of stock photos. Very understandable and fascinating technique.
In addition to clarifying the basic principles, Bryan F Peterson shows and individual techniques. For example:
* How to shoot in the style of Claude Monet (or Edouard Manet - despite both set shutter).
* How to remove the movement (zoom, tilt, pan).
* How to remove white so that AE did not turn it into gray.
* How to do Macro without buying expensive macro lens.

World famous photographer Bryan Peterson shares his 30 years of professional and teaching experience with you in this easy to use DVD. The Perfect Picture shows you everything, step-by-step, from the basics to more advanced techniques and exactly how to use camera's most important features. Bryan will explain to you just how easy it is to take the "Perfect Picture!" Secrets until now that were only used by the pros.
All you point and shoot photographers with no training, do everyone you know a favor and watch this video! You do not need a fancy camera to make use of 90% of the info on this DVD. Bryan teaches you how to pay attention to all aspects of photography. It will help you avoid taking those awful "myspace shots" that convey nothing with awful colors made by harsh/unnecessary use of flash, not standing in the right spot and not looking beyond your subject. Basically you're taught to look at everything and never again use the "AUTO" features of any camera (the little running, flower,portrait icons) and all those fluffy features on Point and shoots. You will learn how to use those scary settings "M"anual, "A"pperture, "S"hutter on your camera. At the end you'll see that they aren't scary at all!
I think one of the best examples in the video is the peacock picture at the zoo. First example is the one we all have taken, a picture of the peacock, walking in a cage at a zoo. Thats what it tells people, "i saw a bird in a zoo". He then shows you how to fill the frame with the peacock. The new picture is of a peacock and you can tell someone, i did this at the zoo, no need to include the ugly fence. We all know their are birds in the zoo, we want to see the beautiful bird they have, and only that!
If you're thinking of buying a better camera, not necessarily a DSLR, after watching this, you will know what to really look for in your new point and shoot cameras and won't be afraid of stepping outside the "auto" modes.
Bryan does an excellent job at presenting. He speaks in "sesame street" language making this pleasant and easy to follow by kids and adults, and even the geeks.
He covers materials from his two books, Understanding Exposure and Understanding shutter speed. I advice you watch this video first, then dive into the books for detail. If you have already read his books like me, it really helps to. You follow along with the video and will pick a concept or two you might not have understand when you read it. If by the end you feel that you knew all that info already from the book, congrats! that means you have a great basic foundation, its like taking a test w/o the stress of grades.
