Learn Photography through Canon Virtual DSLR site


Canon Introduces a Virtual DSLR site to Enable Amateurs Learn the Basics…
Learning photography the DSLR way is no more cumbersome, thanks to the initiative of Canon Canada who have released a simulator website of its own dubbed Outside of Auto. The Outside of Auto website maintains that while a Canon DSLR can still take good photos in Auto, the real fun starts once you begin to understand exposure and all the ways to control it. As such, the website gives users three sections to choose from: Learn, Play and Challenge.
The Learn section itself is then split into three sections: Home, Photography 101,  and Tips.

Home covers the basic exposure triangle, giving visual representations of how aperture, shutter speed and ISO all affect the final exposure.

Photography 101 then goes into more detail under headings like “Understanding Exposure,” “Setting the Mood” and “Your Shooting Environment,”

and Tips includes tidbits that will help beginners understand the Shutter and Aperture Priority modes while explaining some of the benefits and pitfalls of each point in the triangle.

Once users are done learning the basics they can head over to Canon’s simulator in the Play section, where they can put their new found knowledge to use. This section gives you a chance to shoot as many pictures as it takes to understand those settings and how to properly expose a photo.
