Welcome to A Mind's Eye Photography 101. The digital camera has opened up photography to a whole new audience. But the digital SLR camera can be very confusing at times. My objective is to explain, in simple terms, the principles of photography as they apply to your digital SLR camera. My hope is you'll learn how to use your DSLR camera in Manual Mode, so you can get the most out of your hobby.

There are also users who just want to know how to take better pictures using the automatic settings. And, over time, I'll cover those topics too.

Please enter any comments, questions or rants by clicking on the Comments button. Let's start a dialogue and see where it goes.

If there is a photographic topic you're confused or unsure about, please email me (you're probably not alone). I'll reply and write a 101 post. This way we all learn.
