With so many photography workshops around, I guess photographer Donald Giannatti felt there was a need to fill in the blanks for some beginners out there. Donald came up with a series of short tutorials on the basic skills needed from photographers such as How to open a camera bag (with a bonus about closing it too) and Lens Caps for Film Photography.

Donald hinted that many more tutorials will come on this series. (Hit the jump for teasers from his first three workshops)

Lens Caps for Film Photography

How to open a camera bag

Turning a Canon camera on

We asked Donald for his motivation for releasing those tutorials:

I feel that these highly important pro tips will liberate many photographers from not knowing how to open a bag, turn their camera on and of course the pain and humiliation of not removing a lens cap the best, most expedient way.

Sharing those secrets to professionalism is becoming a trend and while some photographers are upset that their secrets are revealed for free, photographer John Aldred joined the club and shared a similar video aimed at Nikon users:

We can’t help but hope that this new fed spreads around…

    I hope you cover lens caps for digital photography.

    Okay, I’ve mastered the lens cap, opening the camera bag, and turning on my 5D III
    But I’m waiting for the videos for how to turn on my Canon A-1 and F-1N. Since irony doesn’t translate well via text, I’ve owned the A-1 since 1980 and shot hundreds of rolls with it.
    Also, even though I don’t own a rangefinder, I hear that it’s trickier to figure out if the lens cap is on before taking a photograph; if I go to take a photograph with my SLR and what I see is black, that could mean one of two things: it’s very, very dark, or I’ve left the lens cap on! Duh’oh!

    Wow. A community where novices/n00bz who need legitimate help get dogged for being ignorant. Golfers are more welcoming and less pretentious.

        Ahh. So the people who attend these “trivial workshops” have been complaining about how useless they are. Gotcha. My bad.
