It’s possible to spend a lifetime perfecting your photographic skills, but if you’d rather get to grips with the basics, it’s spending some time pressing the tutorial videos from DigitalRev TV.

The advice on offer is geared more towards digital SLR camera owners than anyone with a point-and-shoot, but the sheer range of information on offer means there’s something useful to be found for just about every kind of photographer.

More to the point, the videos are all professionally produced and everyone involved is clearly having fun, which makes them all the more interesting to watch — and a refreshing change from most YouTube fare.

Here’s a sample video that explains how to take a good Facebook profile photo, which is probably something that few non-photographers have ever worried about.

“50 quick photography tips in less 15 minutes” is also worth a watch and don’t forget to browse the mine of information at the main Digital Rev site, too.
