Why can’t I just use my iPhone?

I know, iPhones can take awesome photos (hellooo portrait mode!), and I even teach an iPhoneography course, but an iPhone can’t replicate your actual camera to a “t.”

Why not?

An actual DSLR camera gives us way more control over our photographs, allowing us to blur the background (bokeh), freeze water (using shutter speed), capture motion (shutter speed again), greater ability to manipulate our images, and more.

So what’s a DSLR?

Remember you mom’s first digital camera? Or yours, I’m not judging. That whopping 3.1 megapixel piece of equipment that captured many of your memories in all their hazy glory? The one where she- or you- just pointed and shot the photo, much like with your iPhone? That’s a point-and-shoot.

A DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) is much more capable. This beauty captures memories with precision, transforming them into works of art. But with more buttons comes more responsibility, well, the need for more knowledge.

That’s where Digital Photography 101 comes in.
