These days, nearly anything you want to learn is accessible on YouTube. As the content and production quality have improved, so has its popularity. Did you know YouTube is the second most used search engine, behind Google...it’s that popular! I bring up YouTube because it is, more-or-less, how I advanced my own photography.
Here is a list of my favorite YouTube channels/episodes that can help you, as well:
- Do you often wonder what all those buttons and settings on your camera do...this is a great start? “The 15 Features of Your DSLR That Every Photographer Should Know” by Jeff Cable - https://youtu.be/ap7qnQHIuXI
- Tony & Chelsea Northrup - All around photography instruction and gear reviews. They have a great book that I purchased a few years, ago - “How to Create Stunning Digital Photography.” It is a best seller on Amazon and is only $10. I highly recommend the book and their channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/VistaClues
- Thomas Heaton - If you’re interested in landscape photography, Thomas is a favorite of mine. Thomas will take you out on his many hikes and adventures while sharing his tips and tricks to get those killer images. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfhW84xfA6gEc4hDK90rR1Q
- The Art of Photography - Ted Forbes knows so much about the history of photography and often interviews or reviews some of the great photographers of our time. His channel goes beyond gear and knobs and explores what actually makes a good photograph. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfhW84xfA6gEc4hDK90rR1Q
These resources have been an ongoing source of information and inspiration for me. I hope these can help you kindle your fire for photography, as well.
