If your motherâ€™s thinking of moving up from her point-and-shoot to be with you in your DSLR photography, thereâ€™s a nice little microsite from Canon that can help her get up to speed quickly.
Tell her Canon can teach her how to Discover The Real Joy of Photography (thatâ€™s the micrositeâ€™s name) by using a digital SLR camera instead of a crappy little old P&S. It teaches the basics of digital SLR photography via online tutorials, and itâ€™s FREE!
The fun tutorials are broken down into 4 parts:
Part 1 – Fun and Easy Digital SLRs (Basic Introduction)
Part 2 – Using Camera Features for Better Photos (Practical Applications)
Part 3 – Choosing Lenses for Different Kinds of Photos (Interchangeable Lens)
Part 4 – Printing Photos
Thereâ€™s even a photography terminology reference that can introduce your Mom to the jargon of digital SLR shooting. Of course, it’s not only for your mother; it’s for you too if your new to DSLRs.
