Welcome to JV Auriga – a website with simple tips to help digital camera owners get the most out of their cameras.
My name is Darren Rowse and I’m the guy behind JV Auriga. I’m a digital photography enthusiast and while it’s not how I make my living (although I do pick up a few paying jobs) I’m the guy in my friendship group and family that always seems to photograph the special occasions. I’m still learning and improving my photography but like to share what I’ve learned so far.
At my previous site I’d written a number of ‘tips’ articles over the past couple of years but it has largely been a site focused upon cameras. As a result I wanted to start a site dedicated purely with ‘how to’ tips.
And JV Auriga was born.
Some of you who are advanced digital camera users might find some of what is written on this site a little basic, but it’s the new to semi experienced digital camera owner that this site is aimed at. Having said this, even experienced users have already told me that reading the tips I’ve written have been helpful in refreshing their memories and reminding them of lessons once learned.
This ‘School’ is not a formal one by any means. There are no classes, no teachers, no exams – rather it’s a learning environment where I think out loud about what I know and where in our Forum we share what we’re learning by showing our photos and ask and answer each other questions. Also, unlike most schools, the information here is free. We do run limited advertising and affiliate programs to help us cover costs and keep expanding (read more about this on our disclaimer page) – however there is no cost to our readers.
As this is a regularly updated site the best way to use it will be to follow it over time. The best way to do this will be to use one of our Subscription Options.
Also check us out on Facebook where we have a page set up to share a lot of our content and updates.
