This workshop will help you reach your artistic potential by teaching you how to master the controls and settings on your DSLR or Mirrorless digital camera.

Course Description:

Tired of always struggling with your camera? Don’t know where to find the setting you want in the menu? You cannot reach your creative potential until you have internalized how your camera works. All digital DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras have similar controls, they might be named something different, or be in another location, or menu, but all camera controls have a certain underlying logic. This workshop does a deep dive into camera controls, proceeding from the basics to advanced knowledge. Learning the 10-step system that I have developed from thirty years of teaching photography at the college level will provide you with a foundation of knowledge that will allow you to master your current camera, or any camera you might use in the future. This workshop is applicable to all digital DSLR and Mirrorless camera models and makes. Workshop participates will receive a copy of all presentation materials.
