Through the Eyes of a Pro: Canon, Vol. 1
“Through the Eyes of a Pro” is a series of training DVDs aimed at developing better photographers using digital equipment and proven approaches.
Volumes 1 and 2 of this tutorial series include conversations and photo shoots with famed photographer and teacher, Tim Mantoani.
During the course of these two volumes, we follow Tim on a stock photo shoot, an outdoor portrait session, a wildlife shoot, and a little league game. In all these situations Tim explains the challenges faced and how to overcome them.
Throughout the presentation, Tim shares experiences and techniques gained over twenty years of shooting athletes, sporting events, weddings, as well as commercial and personal assignments. Hundreds of his photos are included in these training DVDs.
Blue Crane Digital has published a two-volume tutorial set geared to owners of Nikon DSLRs and another set of volumes for Canon shooters.

Several photo assignments are presented, along with Tim’s approach to making a great image. Tim also discusses lenses, meters, tripods, and other accessories.
If you own a Digital SLR, even if it is not a Canon or Nikon, the first two volumes in this series can help improve your photography. Spend a few hours with this remarkable photographer and teacher, and see the world through Tim’s eyes.
