You Can Probably Guess Which Captain America: Civil War Scene Freaked Out Robert Downey Jr.
Using a DSLR camera for the first time requires the photographer to think about a lot of things that they maybe can ignore with a simple point and shoot camera.
If you don't have a laptop with a built-in webcam or an external webcam or simply want to make the most of your digital camera capabilities (like aperture adjusting for blurring your background), there is a way to adapt your digital camera as a webcam. Some digital cameras have ability to be used as webcams and are shipped with necessary webcam software, but most camera vendors don't provide such software. In this tutorial you will learn how to use Canon DSLR or Nikon DSLR camera as a regular webcam with the help of SparkoCam. Once camera gets recognized by Windows you may see a notification in a system tray or a popup window about newly available device like the one below. Also, if you installed software that comes on a CD that is shipped with the camera, you may get EOS Utility started up.
Go to Device tab and select Canon Camera checkbox to transform your Canon camera into webcam or Nikon Camera in case you have a Nikon DSLR camera.
If you have only one camera connected to the PC, SparkoCam will automatically pick it up, otherwise select required camera from the Camera list. At this step you need to configure your target application to use SparkoCam as a video source. For example, to configure Skype you need to open Options dialog and select SparkoCam Virtual Webcam in Select webcam list. Please note that Canon and Nikon cameras don't provide functionality for using their microphones for audio capturing, so it won't be possible to use camera's built-in microphone for sound, thus you need an external microphone to enable voice.
This is an embarrassing confession for me to make, both considering that photography is a big part of my blogging and um, considering I took photography in college (and never really knew what I was doing). I can’t tell you how excited and relieved I am to finally learn how to use my DSLR camera properly (or at least start to!) and take it off auto.
After the first couple of lessons online, I took my camera along on our family apple picking excursion to Sky Top Orchards and practiced, practiced, practiced. Later, I watched another lesson, then grabbed another photoshoot opportunity—playing Ticket to Ride with Maia.


About halfway through the game, we had the (new-to-us) game figured out and I felt like the photography thing finally clicked for me.
Plus, it means that I can finally use that nifty fifty lens that my husband bought me for my birthday a year and a half ago!
This class has been sitting on my Craftsy wishlist–thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
This is prompting me to practice this weekend with this camera, but I could really use a class on it!
I’m glad to see you used your new camera for a great new photo of you in your header.
I used an 18-55mm lens during the class, Malory, but then started taking photos with my 50mm lens (and a few of those in this post were taken with the 50mm). I saw it marked down last night but was waiting to get to my desktop to pay, and since it said through Sept 25 at midnight, I assumed I could purchase it for the discounted price today? I just emailed my contact at Craftsy about the sale ending early and will let you all know what I find out! Use these tips for using a DSLR camera for the first time, and you’ll hopefully have a successful photographic experience. When holding the DSLR camera, you’ll want your right hand around the handgrip, leaving your right index finger near the shutter button.
Most entry-level DSLR cameras include a fully automatic mode, making the DSLR work as easily as a simple point and shoot camera. To simplify the shooting for those using a DSLR camera for the first time, set the camera to single-shot mode and use a “one shot” autofocus point. A higher ISO allows you to shoot in lower light, but it will introduce more stray pixels (or noise) into the photo. Finally, before shooting, run through a mental checklist of items that can cause problems with your DSLR photos. SparkoCam is the software that allows you to turn your Canon or Nikon camera into a standard webcam for video chats, conferencing, recordings, etc. SparkoCam doesn't require EOS Utility to function properly, so just close it and go to next steps.


While a photography class has been on my list for, oh, years now, fitting it in around my other responsibilities and the family schedule just didn’t happen. That photo is actually not one that I took, but rather one taken by a professional photographer, Lenka Hattaway.
Like other commenters, I went to sign up but it’s not showing the discounted price anymore. Rest the camera body and lens in the palm of your left hand, lightly gripping the lens between your left fingers and thumb.
Then, as with a point and shoot camera, you can press the shutter halfway down to prefocus on the center of the image. Try to keep the ISO setting as low as possible, with an ISO 100 setting achieving the best results in terms of eliminating noise. Make sure your lens is attached properly to the DSLR camera body, and, if you’re going to use manual focus, figure out how the lens’ focus ring works before you need to shoot a photo. It’s a good piece of equipment and I must congratulate you with all the photos you’ve taken! I will bring out my DSLR every once in awhile, but would love a better understanding of how to use it.. If you are struggling with exposure settings for your DSLR, adjusting the ISO might be the fastest and easiest way to improve your exposure results. They may not be professional quality shots, but boy, was I proud of myself for capturing my daughter in the middle of her silliness and seriousness with crisp images and good lighting.
Because of all of the extra features and accessories that are available with a DSLR camera, it’s important for you to run through a checklist of potential problems the first dozen or so times you use the DSLR camera. Eventually you’ll have the checklist committed to memory, and it will become just part of using your DSLR.
