This is =nikicorny, many ppl said dA won't let them critiques my deviations so I'm just testing it in my old ID LOL.

I think the instructions and photo are quite clear as comparisons for the camera settings, and quite easy to understand too (I hope). As for originality, I'm sure many people out there have made this kind of tutorial as well :iconsweatplz:, and this is just basic technique of 'getting to know your camera'? So this may be helpful for beginners, but not for pro :lol:

Well, hopefully this tutorial still helps many deviants out there anyway :D

The critiques are working just fine btw LOL

First I would like to thank you for making this tutorial. Now I think I finally understood the information the teachers in the photography lessons wanted to give us.

This tutorial gives great visible examples how easy changing small settings on a camera as well as background can turn a "lame no-go average"-photo into a perfect, professional composition with amazing focus and details.

There is a nice number of comparisons and easily understandable instructions to them, wonderful for both, beginners and advanced photgraphers that might have missed something.

The tutorial is neatly arranged as well, giving all information needed without having to read tons of pages in a manual or having to take expansive photography lessons.

Definitely something to share among other photographers!

Many thanks for this visual example. This works for most anything that is in front of the lens. To be honest, I never thought about zooming while taking the shot - wow! What an eye-opener that was TYVM :D

Nice use of basic photo rules, the F stop and Apature are something you have to know something about, i started with Film in College even tho i had used a pocket digital for my art in college and learned more in a darkroom then i ever did in photoshop.
Thier are a lot of cool tricks and effects to do with photos, here are covered some sure fire tips and show some great exapmles of them.Other things to think about in outdoor shooting are cloudy days provide a perfect natural difussion well sunny days make for a fill/spot (Fill light is a bounce or soft light, Spot is a hard sharp light like a spot light on stage). Watch if you have direct sunlight as hot spots can happen and if your background is bright well your figure is in shadow it can move the attension else where then what you intened.
Also your shutter speed can be very fun to play with a quick shutter can stop movement (Like freezeing actionof a fall or hitting a baseball) and a slow shutter speed can blur movement (like the falling of water being a painterly stroke or a red streak while a tail light of car passed by).
Another winner of a guide, great job!
