About This Course

Get control of your digital SLR camera!  In this course, you'll break through the technology barrier and learn how to use your DSLR to take beautiful photos.

You'll start out by learning about the many features and controls of your DSLR and look at the lenses you need for the kind of photography you enjoy. Next, we'll explore exposure controls.  You'll learn about metering, exposure compensation, managing aperture, shutter speed, and ISO.  You'll find out how to use these features to get the right exposure for every shot.

Then we'll turn our attention to flash photography, managing camera controls, photo files, and even working in manual mode.  With these skills, you'll be able to take your photography to the next level. Finally, the course explores high dynamic range photos and how to master those difficult and tricky exposure situations.

By the end of this course, you'll truly be a DSLR master, and most of all, you'll be able to use your camera to take the photos you've always dreamed of.
