My brother wanted to learn more about photography. So we went outside and I tried to teach him the basics about landscape photography. At first he was really interested about learning more. He does own a little digital compact camera that he got for christmas and it can do many great things that a beginner photographer would love. I made him step up from a little compact camera to a 5D mark ii. It was pretty interesting to teach my brother how to use a Dslr camera like the 5D. He learned a lot about the camera itself and how to use it, I didn't have a big brother or a friend that was a photographer and knew something but not everything that is to know about photography when I was starting shooting.
Here's is a photograph of my brother, I've was trying to teach him how the f stopp can have a big effect on the whole image. I got a pretty nice portrait shot of him with the 5D mark ii and the 16-35mm lens. When you get really close with such a wide lens you get this really dramatic image.
