Pro Camera, Noob Photographer: Model Takes on a Nikon D3S

This video has been around for a while; however, it is quite a fun watch. In it, Kai from Digital Rev asks a model to switch roles for the day and get behind the camera.

She says that she normally uses a “small digital camera” and the D3S is more than a handful for her at first. Everything from prime lenses to aperture to exposure compensation causes problems for her; however, she seems to take instruction well as Kai patiently guides her with some basic tips.

Again, it’s a fun watch and is another reminder that it’s the photographer that makes the photo, not the camera.
