Howdy and Welcome to Camera Tips!


Howdy! I want to welcome you to my corner of the web. If you’re new around these parts, you’re probably wondering who I’am and what this site is about.

In a nutshell, I’m a husband, father and geek, all rolled into one with a passion for photography.

Here at I focus on showing you the best settings, tips and tricks for your camera, rather than overwhelming you with technical photography terms and photographic rules.

Get started: Check out the Learn How to Use Your Camera section below to get helpful tips and tricks for your camera.

Like watching videos? Check out my YouTube channel for the latest vlogs and video tutorials on photography. You can also browse the videos page which is organized by topic.

Have a question? The best way to reach me is on Facebook. If you’re not on Facebook, you can also tweet a question to @moosewinans on Twitter.

Want to see some behind-the-scenes photos? Follow me on Instagram.

Like photo challenges and prizes? I just started a beginners only community on Instagram with monthly challenges and prizes! Winners are chosen based on their effort and contributions to the community, not their skill level or technical ability. It’s a lot of fun, and we’d love for you to join in.

I also have a friendly forum full of wonderful people who love answering questions centered around cameras and photography.
