This video, from photographer Phil Steele, outlines a few tips that will help you get crisp shots on your DSLR camera.

The five tips he goes through are: leaving automatic mode, focus and recompose (and when not to), look for edge contrasts, when to use manual pre-focus, and use live view for perfect manual focus.

If you’re like me, then making the switch from a point and shoot to a DSLR was an exciting AND intimidating one.  You know that the device you have is capable of amazing shots and will really broaden your photography, but learning to use it can be even worse than programming your thermostat.  This video can certainly help, and so can the rest from SteeleTraining.com.

Thanks to our friends at Peta Pixel for inspiring this post.

And lastly, when you’ve taken some great shots that you now want to get up on your wall, remember that Fracture prints on glass and that we can make it happen for you : )
